Post-Bariatric Plastic Surgery

After significant weight loss, Santa Rosa post-bariatric surgery can reduce excess skin and fat and provide a tighter, smoother shape for the body and face.

The Post-Bariatric Surgery You Deserve

Loose, sagging skin is an unfortunate side effect for many people who have achieved massive weight loss. No matter how much you exercise or how strict your diet, this excess skin will not “bounce back” once it has been stretched out. But plastic surgery can help.

Dr. Furnas and I perform a variety of body lift procedures to restore tighter, firmer skin in the abdomen, thighs, chest, buttocks, arms, and neck. This creates dramatic improvements in the shape of the body contour and can increase comfort by minimizing skin irritations and hygiene concerns. We have performed post-bariatric plastic surgery such as liposuction for Marin, Sonoma, and Napa County patients, as well as people who have traveled to our practice from across the country to achieve a better body contour.

Whether you have lost weight from diet and exercise alone or with the help of bariatric surgery, your achievement is commendable – you’ve taken control of your life and improved your overall health and happiness. Plastic Surgery Associates can help you take the last step in your weight loss efforts so that you can fully enjoy your newfound confidence.

Post-Bariatric Surgery at a Glance

PurposeTo remove excess skin and residual fat, and improve the body contour after weight loss.
Procedure:Because there are multiple sites with loose skin, more than one surgical session is often needed. Your treatment will depend on your concerns, surgical goals, and existing anatomy. Most weight loss patients benefit from a panniculectomy (removal of excess abdominal tissue), breast enhancement, arm lift, and face or neck lift.
Recovery:Your recovery period will depend on the type and number of surgeries performed. Usually, this can take 3 to 4 weeks.
Results:Improved body contour with tighter, firmer skin.
