Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss
When patients lose a substantial amount of weight, whether through bariatric surgery or calorie restriction, it is nearly inevitable that they will retain excess tissue. The skin, which is stretched beyond its ability to retract, hangs on the body and may contain stubborn areas of fat. The abdomen, upper arms, thighs, and breasts are usually the most affected. With customized procedures including arm lift, thigh lift, lower body lift, and post-bariatric breast lift and augmentation, Dr. Fisher removes the excess skin, tissue, and fat with surgery and often the addition of liposuction. He can then tighten the underlying structures and re-drape the tissue so that the patient’s skin conforms to their new, smaller body. After surgery, results will be visible right away. However, it may take several months or longer to see the optimum results.
Patients who choose Dr. Fisher for their post-massive weight loss body contouring can anticipate better outcomes that will ultimately have longer-lasting results than if they had gone elsewhere for their surgery. This is because Dr. Fisher performs very advanced, modified body sculpting surgery specifically for post-massive weight loss patients. He carefully evaluates candidacy for post-bariatric body contouring and always makes patient safety his top priority. Dr. Fisher’s innovative techniques, such as the hip flap lower body lift, help patients to preserve their natural-looking masculine or feminine body contours after the excess tissue has been eliminated. By beginning with these specialized techniques, Dr. Fisher is confident he can provide patients with the best chance of maintaining their surgical results.
What Patients Can Do to Maintain Their Results
Dr. Fisher wants to make sure that patients are well informed about their procedure, and provides thorough consultations as well as his own patient information booklet with extensive guidelines on how to prepare and recover from surgery. Patients can proactively aid the maintenance of their body contouring procedures by carefully following Dr. Fisher’s guidelines during recovery and healing. For example, you should avoid bending, straining, lifting, or otherwise overextending your body to avoid stressing any internal structures. Dr. Fisher advises patients to return to light walking as soon as possible to help minimize complications, while being careful not to overdo it. Importantly, Dr. Fisher’s office will stay in contact with you during your recovery and encourage you to contact them with any concerns.
