Bariatric surgeries include gastric bypass and other weight-loss surgeries that alter the digestive system to assist with weight loss. While these procedures can significantly help with losing weight, patients may seek additional plastic surgery to enhance or restore the body. Board-certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides plastic surgery to patients in Dallas, Plano, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Procedures Post Bariatric Surgery
Patients who have lost significant weight following bariatric surgery most commonly wish to trim and tighten excess, sagging skin. Ideal post-weight loss procedures to address these concerns include tummy tuck, body lift, and breast lift. Patients that experience loss of volume in the breasts may wish to undergo breast augmentation. During your consultation, your surgeon will create a personalized surgical plan that is best suited for you and your specific goals.
After your procedure, you will experience bruising and swelling for several weeks. You will need to take prescribed pain medications, wear compression garments, and attend all your follow up visits with your surgeon. Your results will be visible after a few weeks into your recovery, and must be maintained with a healthy diet and exercise.
As with any surgical procedure, there is always a risk of complications. The most common risks following post-weight loss surgeries include infection, seroma, and scarring. You can reduce your risk of complications by halting use of tobacco, ensuring your wound is clean and properly taken care of following surgery, and by choosing a surgeon that is adequately qualified and trained to perform your procedures.
