Body Contouring and Post-Bariatric Surgery Aesthetics
Comprehensive Post-Bariatric Body Contouring Surgery
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.
