Body Contouring and Post-Bariatric Surgery Aesthetics
Body contouring is an excellent way to remove excess skin and tissue, in order to create a smoother, more natural body shape. Body contouring is particularly helpful to individuals who have lost significant weight after undergoing bariatric surgery and want to get rid of uncomfortable folds of excess skin. Dr. Potter offers post-bariatric aesthetic treatment and body contouring surgery in order to assist patients who want to achieve a more attractive figure following dramatic weight loss.

Comprehensive Post-Bariatric Body Contouring Surgery
Bariatric surgery is a potentially life-saving procedure for the morbidly obese. By undergoing bariatric surgery to reduce the stomach's capacity, obese individuals can lose significant weight and enjoy accompanying health benefits. Unfortunately, significant weight loss often leaves loose folds of excess skin and other tissue where there was once fat. Post-bariatric body contouring surgery aims to remove this unneeded, uncomfortable tissue in order to restore a more defined shape and attractive appearance to the patient.

Post-bariatric surgery typically requires comprehensive body lifting to address loose skin all over the body. During a body contouring procedure such as this, Dr. Potter will make discreet incisions and remove excess skin from those areas, stretching and tightening the remaining skin. In some cases, Dr. Potter may use liposuction to remove some additional fat during a post-bariatric body contouring procedure.

It is important for patients to understand that post-bariatric surgery is complex and invasive, and involves a lengthy recovery period. Dr. Potter’s post-bariatric surgery patients should plan to spend up to six weeks recovering at home after leaving the hospital, depending on the extent of the procedure. Dr. Potter and his staff will customize post-bariatric body contouring surgery to meet the specific needs and goals of each patient.

Dr. Potter helps post-bariatric body contouring surgery patients develop more defined figures after significant weight loss. If you are interested in scheduling a consultation to discuss body contouring, contact Graystone Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery today.
