Following any type of major weight loss, friends and family are always impressed with the dedication and commitment you’ve put forth to achieve a healthier you. But with any substantial reduction in weight, especially after a gastric bypass, what people may not realize is the embarrassment and frustrations associated with the extra skin that now hangs uncomfortably off your much thinner frame. The reality is that weight loss surgery, while incredibly beneficial, doesn’t address the lost tone and elasticity of a patient’s skin. Tissue that has been stretched out for years doesn’t have the ability to ‘bounce back’ – a consequence that can prevent men and women from enjoying the wonderful results of their weight loss efforts.
The good news is that surgical body sculpting after weight loss surgery can eliminate that excess, hanging skin, helping transform your physical appearance while boosting self confidence. With procedures like upper arm and buttock lifts, thigh lifts and tummy tucks, you can say goodbye to loose, drooping skin, enabling you to confidently wear those clothes you worked so hard to fit into.
If you’ve reached your dream of a healthier weight following gastric bypass but are still bothered by sagging skin, body sculpting may be the solution. In fact, some patients think of it as the final step in their weight loss journey.
Leading New York plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Loeb offers both the expertise and compassion sought by post-gastric bypass surgery patients. Whether you’re considering total body sculpting after weight loss surgery or prefer to address specific body parts, Dr. Loeb’s artistry and attention to detail will help restore your self confidence as you achieve the physical appearance you’ve always desired. Dr. Loeb’s dedicated medical and administrative team treat patients like family and offer full support throughout your physical and emotional transformation.
