Undergoing bariatric surgery or any other type of weight loss surgery can be an important step in taking control of your health. After your weight loss surgery, you should be proud of your accomplishments and encouraged to maintain your results by altering your diet and exercise regimen. However, this surgery is also often accompanied by certain aesthetic drawbacks.
After weight loss surgery, it is common to have excess loose, hanging skin in areas that used to hold large fat deposits. This may serve to accentuate the areas which used to carry most of your weight, preventing you from enjoying an improved body contour following your weight loss.
Denver plastic surgeons Dr. John A. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro offer a variety of procedures that will help improve the appearance of these areas, giving you a slimmer, trimmer, and more attractive body contour that will help boost your confidence after weight loss surgery.
One of the most common areas to store excess fat is the abdomen. As a result, Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro will often recommend a tummy tuck for their patients undergoing plastic surgery after weight loss. Your tummy tuck will tighten loose skin and muscles in the abdominal region that were stretched as a result of weight gain.
Our Denver plastic surgeons can perform your tummy tuck as a stand-alone procedure or as part of a more extensive body lift. At your initial consultation, Dr Grossman and Dr. Capraro will discuss your options and recommend the best approach to achieve your desired outcome.
