For people who were morbidly obese, massive weight loss is something to be celebrated as a life-changing, and possibly life-saving, event. However, for many of these people, the transformation may seem incomplete, as folds of excess skin and isolated pockets of fatty tissue remain stubbornly behind. At the cosmetic surgery practice of Dr. Ronald H. Schuster, a number of body contouring procedures can be combined and customized to meet the special needs of post-bariatric patients, helping them to reveal the trim, healthy figures that better reflect their massive weight loss.*
Creating a Post-bariatric Body Contouring Plan
The needs of people who have lost massive amounts of weight are unique among cosmetic surgery patients. For many of these people, the skin is unable to fully conform to the body’s radically new shape; this excess skin simply hangs from the body, making it difficult for these people to find clothing that fits comfortably, among other issues. Dr. Schuster has extensive experience in creating post-bariatric body contouring plans that address the special needs of those who have undergone massive weight loss, combining and personalizing such procedures as:
- Abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck” surgery
- Breast reduction
- Body lift
- Skin care treatments to reduce the appearance of stretch marks
- Breast lift
- Male breast reduction
Dr. Schuster can analyze your specific case and explain which options would be best suited to your needs during a confidential consultation to discuss post-bariatric procedures at his Baltimore area cosmetic surgery practice.
