Enhance Your Bariatric Surgery Results with a Tummy Tuck

Choosing to undergo bariatric surgery can be a life-changing decision. After your procedure, an improved diet and exercise habits can help you achieve the body that you have always wanted. However, you may be left with excess, loose folds of skin as a reminder of your pre-surgery figure. Sagging skin in the abdominal area can be especially troublesome for patients who are looking for a tight, toned appearance. 

Dr. Michael A. Devlin is a skilled cosmetic surgeon that can help you achieve an improved appearance with a post-weight loss surgery tummy tuck procedure at our Little Rock, Arkansas cosmetic surgery practice. We can address this common concern after your weight loss surgery.

Contouring after Massive Weight Loss

For patients who have recently undergone gastric bypass surgery, LAP-BAND® surgery, or another means of weight loss, we offer special body contouring procedures that can complement this achievement. Body contouring after massive weight loss often involves trimming of excess skin, but can also include a breast lift, lower body lift, and thigh lift, among other treatments.

Types of Tummy Tucks Tailored to Your Needs 

Following your weight loss surgery, a tummy tuck procedure can tighten up and tone excess, sagging skin in your abdominal area. Depending on your condition and cosmetic goals, Dr. Devlin will recommend one of two different types of post-bariatric abdominoplasty techniques.

A post-weight loss tummy tuck procedure will complement your dedication to a healthier lifestyle and allow your body to better reflect your ongoing commitment. 

Traditional Tummy Tuck 

A traditional, or upper tummy tuck, is the most commonly performed type of post-bariatric abdominoplasty surgery. This procedure involves the creation of an incision that spans across the lower portion of the abdomen, above the pubic bone. An additional incision near the belly button may be required if the doctor is moving the navel up to provide a more natural, youthful appearance. After the incisions have been created, Dr. Devlin will remove the excess skin from the area and if necessary, tighten up loose or damaged abdominal muscles.

Mini Tummy Tuck 

A mini, or lower tummy tuck, is an ideal choice for patients who need to address a minimal amount of loose skin and tissue below the belly button. This procedure involves only a small incision just above the pubic bone. A lower tummy tuck offers less dramatic results than a full abdominoplasty, but is associated with shorter recovery times and a lower risk of complications.

Dr. Devlin can help you decide which type of procedure is best to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Although both procedures will involve some degree of scarring, but Dr. Devlin will take great care to minimize their visibility.

Your Commitment to a New, Healthier Lifestyle

It is important to remember that weight loss surgery and follow-up cosmetic procedures are simply the tools that you will need to achieve the body that you have always dreamed of. The real change that needs to take place is your commitment to:

  • A healthier lifestyle
  • Dietary changes
  • Regular exercise

A post-weight loss tummy tuck procedure will complement your dedication to these changes and allow your body to better reflect your ongoing commitment.
