Why Get Cosmetic Surgery After Massive Weight Loss?

Most people who undergo bariatric (weight loss) surgery are delighted to see the excess pounds melt away. However, many of them notice an unwelcome side effect of rapid weight loss – a certain amount of excess skin on their thighs, buttocks, torso and arms. The redundant tissue is problematic for both aesthetic and medical reasons. It prevents weight loss surgery patients from showing off their newly slim body contours; and the excess skin is easily irritated, leading to painful rush and swelling. Dr. Greenwald can help formerly obese individuals resolve these problems by surgically removing the excess skin and fatty tissue and tightening the body contours.

Post-Bariatric Surgery Approach

Because post-weight loss surgery is a comprehensive, intricate procedure, Dr. Greenwald conducts thorough pre-surgical consultations. During this time, he evaluates each patient’s health history and learns about his or her aesthetic desires. Dr. Greenwald also asks his Westchester County / Manhattan post-bariatric surgery patients to point out the body areas they feel most self-conscious about. Typically, the surgical treatment plan addresses these areas first. Depending on the needs of each patient, several surgical sessions might be needed to enhance the appearance of various body parts.

As a highly experienced NYC post-bariatric surgery specialist, Dr. Greenwald emphasizes that a comprehensive surgical approach is usually the best as it produces the most proportionate, natural-looking results. For example, a patient with sagging skin on both the abdomen and thighs should undergo tummy tuck and thigh lift to achieve a balanced appearance. Treatment of only one body part might result in an asymmetry, rendering the patient unhappy with the surgical results.
