Bariatric Surgery – The Key Role a Plastic Surgeon Plays In Contouring Your Body

Making the decision to lose a substantial amount of weight to regain control of your health is a positive step.

Procedures such as endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, lap banding and gastric sleeve surgery has made rapid weight loss more attainable.

When you experience extreme weight loss in a short amount of time, it can be disappointing to be met with noticeably loose, sagging skin and a distorted shape.

After working hard to achieve your weight loss goals, you deserve to have results that you’ll love and that’s where Cairns Plastic Surgery can add the finishing touch to your bariatric surgery.

Body contouring plastic surgery can help effectively eliminate sagging skin, but it’s important to understand what to expect so that you can determine whether or not it’s the right decision for you.

What is Post Bariatric Surgery

Excess skin is the primary cosmetic concern after bariatric surgery and weight loss.

Your skin has been stretched due to weight gain, it loses it’s elasticity when the weight is lost again, and it is unable to adjust naturally to your new, slimmer contours.

At Cairns Plastic Surgery, we have a passion for keeping up to date with the latest surgical procedures and constantly improving the quality of care we provide to you after your weight loss.

Our team has seen an increasing number of people who are seeking to remove excess skin and reduce residual fat deposits after bariatric surgery. Surgical procedures to refine weight loss changes include:

  • Face and neck lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Arm lift (Brachioplasty)
  • Breast lift with or without breast implants
  • Buttock and thigh lift
