Sometimes losing weight is only half the battle. My patient, shown above, worked hard to lose weight and tone his muscles. He has accomplished a lot. He felt great about his progress and just wanted to feel better about his results, primarily his appearance.
When Weight Loss Isn’t Enough
Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery is a specialized facet of plastic surgery specifically designed to address the excess skin that often remains after weight loss, especially massive weight loss. The patient above is feeling great about himself after Male Breast Reduction and a Tummy Tuck were performed. The combination tightened his skin, improved his appearance and helped show off his new more muscular physique.
For women, this combination of procedures is commonly termed a Mommy Makeover, so can we call the male version a Masculine Makeover, Daddy Do-Over or Father Fixer-Upper. I’ll just call him a happy patient. If you like these results, more examples of skin removal surgeries are included in today’s video presentation.
Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery Video Presentation
Today’s Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery Video Presentation is taken from my 50th episode of Body Beautiful, which originally aired on the San Francisco Bay Area’s news station – KRON 4. Host Janelle Marie and I review many of the most common procedures used to tighten the body after massive weight loss. I cannot wait to use our new KRON 4 studio, but for now we remain physically distanced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Types of Post-Bariatric Plastic Surgery
The Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery Video above reviews many of the more common plastic surgery options available for skin tightening after weight loss:
Other common procedures include:
- Neck Lifts
- Breast Lifts (with and without Breast Implants)
- Back Lifts
- Buttocks Lifts
- Lower Body Lifts
The choice of procedure(s) depends on what areas have loosened up and the patients’ priorities. More information on these skin tightening surgery can be found on my website’s Post Bariatrics Page.
