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:

  • Abdominoplasty
  • Lower body lift
  • Mastopexy
  • Augmentation mastopexy
  • Brachioplasty
  • 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.

Benefits of Post Gastric Bariatric Surgery

  • Maximizes the gains from bariatric surgery
  • Creates a more youthful body profile
  • Remove loose and sagging skin effectively
  • Improves self esteem and emotional well being
So I did sculpsure about 2 months ago with Dr. Newman. It is apparently the ""latest"" and hottest (no pun intended) laser liposuction machine out there. At first I felt like a sucker because it honestly, sounds too good to be true. I went in for routine injectables and saw a big banner in the waiting room which sparked my interest.Read More I am not a big woman. 33 years old, no children, but a stubborn belly bulge. Dr. Newman told me I was a great candidate but then proceeded to tell me it takes about 6-8 weeks to see the first sign of results and 12 weeks to see full results!! Goodbye instant gratification!!!!
So - I booked my treatment. You can have up to 4 applicators at a time and it only takes 25 minutes for all 4. I was a little more uncomfortable than what I had expected, but Jess the tech was wonderful and worked her magic to make it bearable and dare I say fun?
I had 2 pieces on my lower belly and 2 on my upper belly. 2 months in, I feel I can give an honest yes to seeing a definite change. Post treated my belly felt a little sore, which I was told could happen and it was spot on. I didn't have to wear a garment and i had no restrictions after.
I would recommend the Sculpsure and Dr. Newman's whole staff and I will be back for more. I felt like everyone was very honest. In another few weeks I will return to assess my progress and i will have a copy of my before and afters to share :)

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.
