Benefits of Post Bariatric Surgery
After losing a major amount of weight, the skin may be left stretched and sagging. This may detract from your accomplishment of losing the weight in the first place, which is why an upper and lower body lift may help:
- Improve body contours
- Remove excess skin and tissue
- Improve self-confidence
Whether you choose an upper body lift, lower body lift, or both, Dr. Devlin will help you achieve your cosmetic goals. When you meet with him for a consultation you will discuss the procedures that can give you optimal results.
Post Bariatric Cosmetic Procedures
Post bariatric surgery in Little Rock can be performed for areas of the upper and lower body. An upper body lift often includes areas such as the torso, breasts, and arms. As part of the upper body lift in Arkansas, a breast reduction, breast lift, tummy tuck, or arm lift may be performed. Dr. Devlin also may perform facial cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift to improve sculpting and reduce the "hollow" appearance that can occur following weight loss.
For the lower body, including the hips, buttocks, and thighs, the skin is lifted and any excess fat is removed, resulting in beautiful and smooth body contours. Often, post weight loss patients will want to improve areas of their upper and lower body.
At his practice in Arkansas, liposuction is often performed by Dr. Devlin as part of both lower and upper body lifts to remove remaining pockets of fat and enhance results. In cases where extensive surgical correction is necessary, he may choose to stage the procedures over a span of months to improve outcomes.
Recovery time and what to expect during the recovery period depends a great deal on the types of procedures being performed. Dr. Devlin will be happy to provide details for your individual case during your consultation.
