The skin has often been damaged, losing natural flexibility. The excess skin brings other problems, such as chafing and rashes, and limits the types of clothing that can be worn. Plastic surgery allows the person to experience greater comfort, and to have the skin now fit the frame of the body. Every patient has individual needs, based upon the amount of weight lost, the elasticity of the skin, and the areas that need to have excess skin removed. A customized treatment plan will be developed to remove the excess skin and tissue and create a more attractive body contour – at last.

After Your Procedure

After bariatric surgery, many patients will seek plastic surgery procedures to reveal a slimmer, trimmer body contour. The extreme weight loss achieved with bariatric surgical intervention makes it possible to achieve a healthier, happier life for those who have been dealing with obesity.

To help you with this, we have a dedicated board-certified plastic surgeon to address all cosmetic issues.

After Bariatric Surgery: Excess Skin and Tissue Removal

After bariatric surgery has achieved a weight loss goal, the body is typically left with excess skin and tissue that must be removed to finally resculpt and reshape the body. At New York Bariatric Group, we provide bariatric surgery patients with a range of plastic surgery procedures to restore a trimmer, more attractive body contour. The procedures that may be involved to eliminate the excess skin and tissue include:

Body Lift

After the extreme weight loss associated with bariatric surgery, a healthy weight is achieved. A body lift is the final transformation, removing the excess skin, tissue, and fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and other areas. The removal of the excess through a body lift, often in conjunction with liposuction treatments, tightens loose skin and muscle structure to create a smooth, trim body contour.

Liposuction

The removal of fat deposits that remain after bariatric surgery can be accomplished with the help of liposuction. Stubborn fat deposits can leave the body appearing less attractive than it should; liposuction can be employed to remove these unwanted fatty deposits and smooth out the body contour and create a slimmer profile.

Tummy Tuck

Upon losing unhealthy fat through bariatric surgery, many patients are left with a sagging tummy with excess skin and tissue that hangs. The condition is unattractive, uncomfortable, and difficult to conceal without wearing baggy, loose clothing. A tummy tuck may be needed to remove the excess skin and tissue, and restore a smooth, trim body contour in the abdominal area – finally allowing the person to wear tighter-fitting clothing options with confidence. A tummy tuck may be the only procedure needed, or may be part of a more extensive treatment plan for those who have other body areas that need to be resolved.

Breast Augmentation

Many patients who come to NYBG Plastic Surgery do so because they have recently lost weight, either by surgical means or through diet and exercise alone. Unfortunately, many women who have found success on their weight loss journeys are dismayed to find that their breasts are one of the areas shrinking in size as fat melts away. Many women find themselves dissatisfied with small and/or misshapen breasts that fail to complement their figure, causing them to lack confidence in their bodies. A breast augmentation can increase breast volume and improve definition for a fuller, more youthful bust.

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

I think I always grew up identifying myself as less than other people because I was fat. I decided to tackle that and just live my life. I had a sleeve gastrectomy. It changed how I view myself. How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools you need to succeed here.
