Have You Recently Had Weight-Loss Surgery?

body sculpting options If you have lost a considerable amount of weight or have undergone weight-loss (bariatric) surgery, chances are you are becoming healthier and look terrific. The decision to have this surgery is definitely life-changing. But following surgery, you may have saggy, loose, hanging skin – a daily reminder of your former self. This excess skin which accompanies extreme weight-loss or bariatric surgery is a concern for many patients and may affect their self-confidence, comfort and even their hygiene.

Your skin’s elasticity affects how your body will look following weight loss. The skin in regions of the body that are most stretched from weight gain tend to be less elastic. Following your weight loss, you may be left with an overhanging apron of skin, called a pannus which folds on the front of your abdomen. In addition to preventing your clothes from fitting well, a pannus can irritate your skin and may interfere with your normal daily activities. Take heart. There are some cosmetic surgery options available to compliment your weight loss.

Dr. Shah is a specialist in body contouring cosmetic procedures. You may choose to have a breast lift, a tummy tuck, an arm or neck lift – or a combination of these procedures.

The optimum time to consider a body contouring cosmetic surgical procedure is when you are as close to your goal weight as possible and your weight has been stable for at least three months. This will help ensure the most satisfying results.

It is also a good idea to consider the following:

  • What are your goals and expectations? Are they realistic?
  • Is your general health good?
  • Do you regularly participate in an exercise program?
  • Is your weight stable?
  • What parts of your body bother you the most? Do they bother you enough to undergo major surgery?

Call, today, for a consultation appointment with Dr. Shah to discuss the many cosmetic surgery and body sculpting options available to you. Summer is here. Now may be the perfect time: 702-684-5502.
