With the increasing popularity of bariatric surgery, more and more patients have successfully lost massive amounts of weight, only to be left with the problem of loose, saggy skin. For someone who has committed so much time and effort to achieve their weight loss, this excess, stretched skin represents an obstacle to feeling totally comfortable with and enjoying their new self. Fortunately, recent innovations in body contouring surgery enable Dr. Tamrakar to safely remove those reminders of your previous self and to reshape all areas of the body. Arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and total circumferential lower body lift (including thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen) procedures have been designed to tailor your skin to your new, trimmer body. Massive weight loss patients present their own special set of factors to consider when planning surgery, including poor skin elasticity, nutritional status and possible wound healing problems. Certain procedures may be extensive and require hospitalization. Nevertheless, this type of body contouring surgery can truly transform one’s appearance and improve the quality of your life.
