At New York Bariatric Group, we are dedicated to helping you throughout your weight loss journey - from the research phase all the way to post-weight loss.
A significant weight loss is rewarding and exciting, but unfortunately can leave the body with excess loose skin. The skin that had been stretched prior to weight loss may never be reabsorbed by the body, and can only be resolved through plastic surgery. The amount of loose skin remaining on the body after bariatric surgery varies. 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.
