Post Bariatric Surgery Body Contouring

Post Bariatric Surgery Body Contouring

Bariatric surgery can have a significant impact on the body, especially from a body proportion’s standpoint. It takes some amount of time to adjust post-surgery and resume normal activities. Weight loss is just one side of the equation, however. Having your skin and body frame adapt to the change in weight is a gradual process, and post-bariatric surgery body contouring is one of the measures that plastic surgeons advise to help clients ease into their new frame after weight loss surgery. Like all body contouring procedures, this surgery primarily involves tightening and smoothing out any sagging or loose excess skin around the areas where the weight loss is predominantly visible. However, this body contouring procedure is only performed after your weight stabilises for a period post-surgery.

Why Post Bariatric Surgery Is Important

Bariatric surgery is a fairly intensive treatment, and dedicated recovery measures are necessary to assist the patient in stepping back into normalcy. At this juncture, the patient might feel self-conscious about their appearance and have difficulty in finding clothes that fit due to the excess sagging skin and creases that form once they have lost the weight. Dedicated body contouring aims to actively rectify and reverse these changes in the operated area. The primary goal behind this body contouring procedure post-bariatric surgery is to alleviate the excess skin and contour the uneven fat loss that ensues from the process. Body contouring can help deal with pronounced sagging and stretch marks that impact the patient’s self-confidence as well.

  • Before the contouring surgery itself, our anaesthetist will administer general anaesthesia to lessen your discomfort and pain from the procedure.
  • Based on what contouring surgery you preferred , the surgeon will proceed to tighten and realign the sagged and creased skin. This could include brachioplasty, tummy tuck or thigh lift surgery.
  • In some specific cases, a liposuction may be warranted to extract the additional fat residue and excess tissue from the site.
  • After all reshaping is complete, any incisions made are stitched up and bandaged to prevent strain from external sources.

For post-bariatric contouring, it may take up to 12 months for your body to get accustomed to the changes and fit into the new frame.

If the sagging and creasing is on a minor scale, it is your preference to have them contoured. However, in case of more prominent signs, we recommend contouring surgery if it causes you concern.

How long post-bariatric body contouring surgery takes often depends on a multitude of factors, such as the recovery stage and the number of sites to be contoured. Your surgeon will provide an estimated surgery time to you prior to the procedure.
