Bariatric surgeries, such as gastric bypass and weight-loss surgeries, alter a patient’s digestive system to promote weight loss. After the patient has successfully lost weight, they may seek additional plastic surgery to remove excess skin or further enhance or restore the body. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides post-weight loss surgery to patients in Cleveland, Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Lyndhurst, OH, and surrounding locations.
Procedure Post Bariatric Surgery
Patients that lose significant weight most commonly want to remove excess, sagging skin from the body. Procedures that address these concerns may include tummy tuck, body lift, and breast lift. Breast augmentation may also be ideal for patients that experience loss of volume in the breasts following weight loss. During your consultation, your surgeon will recommend procedures that are suitable for you and your aesthetic goals.
Patients should expect swelling and bruising for several weeks following their procedures. You will need to wear compression garments, take prescribed pain medications, and be present for your post-operative appointments to ensure a smooth recovery. Results will be visible within a few weeks, but will require a healthy diet and exercise to be maintained.
There is always a risk of complications with any surgical procedure. Infection, seroma, and scarring are the most common risks, and you can reduce your chance of these complications by halting use of tobacco, ensuring proper wound care, and choosing a surgeon that is adequately qualified to perform your procedures. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides post-weight loss procedures to patients in Cleveland, Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Lyndhurst, OH, and surrounding locations.
