Gaining excessive weight has of late become a growing issue the world over. Medical technology has helped us come up with ways to retrieve the excessive body fats from inflicting more harm on the human body, and many of them have been proven safe
Bariatric surgery, one of these procedures is an increasingly popular option for individuals looking to achieve significant weight loss, and with good reason. It has been proven to be an effective means for weight control, particularly for treating obesity. Unfortunately, the rapid rate of weight loss often means the skin is unable to adjust well to the body’s new contour, which may present an aesthetic appeal problem. This could lead to sagging skin around the abdomen, neck, thighs, arms, buttock regions.
Post gastric bariatric surgery is a medical procedure that addresses these undesirable effects. It is perfect for patients who have undergone gastric bariatric surgery and are looking to get the best aesthetic results that can be obtained from their gastric surgery.
Understanding the Procedure
As the results of gastric surgery are uniquely expressed across individuals, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to post gastric bariatric surgery. It can involve a number of procedures to address the unique needs of each individual. These procedures include:
- Lower body lift
- Augmentation mastopexy
- Upper body lift
- Thigh lift
- Face lift
The treatments above remove and tighten sagging skin, sculpting the body its best shape. The result is a more natural and youthful appearance.

I recently had surgery with Dr. Scott Newman 5 months ago. He did a breast lift with implants and, at the same time he fixed my upper and lower eyelids. I must say, Dr. Newman has changed my life. My eyelid result looks completely natural- I look refreshed but no one can even tell it was from surgery. My breast result is better than anything I imagined I could ever achieve. I saw two other doctors before deciding on Dr. Newman and neither of them gave me the confidence that Dr. Newman gave me. Now, 5 months later, I have scars that are barely visible and I just got back from a vacation where I wore a bikini for the first time in fifteen years! This was the best decision I ever made and I recommend Dr. Newman highly.
Are You An Ideal Candidate For Post Gastric Bariatric Surgery?
Candidates for post gastric bariatric surgery are those who have sustained a weight loss plateau for at least six months. This happens for a number of reasons. First, it enables patients to fully integrate a healthy lifestyle into their daily routine, through exercise and diet. It also enables the individual’s skin to take its natural position following weight loss – some may ‘snap back’ quickly whereas others may take time. The six-month plateau period positions the surgery so that any improvements made will be based on the body’s best shape and will therefore last longer.
How Long Does Post Gastric Bariatric Surgery Take?
