Bariatric surgery is performed to tackle overweight and many patients come away with one problem – sagging skin around the area that the fat was removed. If you’ve lost a lot of excess weight or gone through the bariatric procedure, you’ll know the struggle of excess and loose skin. Thankfully, post-bariatric takes care of that unneeded, wrinkled skin.
There are a handful of such procedures that can help tuck away the aftereffects of your transformation:
Arm Lift Surgery
Most cover up sagging skin from upper arms by avoiding short sleeves. This procedure removes the excess skin and allows one to enjoy toned upper arms. Also known as brachioplasty, the procedure involves removing fatty tissues from the upper arm and tightening the skin, giving you sleek arms and renewed confidence.
Abdominoplasty surgery is performed to get rid of loose and wrinkled skin around the abdominal area. This can be due to pregnancy, weight loss, or hereditary. Commonly known as a tummy tuck, the surgeon carefully removes excess skin, fat, and weak abdominal muscles to achieve a pleasing appearance. This procedure depends on how much you want removed and what you want to achieve. One can opt for a mini tuck or a full tummy tuck. There is also an option to go for the endoscopic tightening.
Body Lift Surgery
This procedure is commonly used by people looking to correct excess and redundant skin. It helps to remove excess skin on the buttocks, thighs, hips and other lower body areas. A body lift removes the skin and tissues from areas with sagging skin and it is sometimes accompanied by liposuction or a tummy tuck to give a toned look to the affected area. Patients take one to two weeks to recover and exercise is recommended to keep up the results of the surgery.
Breast Lift Surgery
Weight loss, pregnancy, and ageing can cause sagging breasts. This procedure lifts and reshapes breasts, giving back your youthful confidence. Technically known as mastopexy, the procedure removes excess tissues, skin and overstretched ligaments to reshape breasts, giving them a contoured look. Women enjoy a higher self-image after the procedure, and it improves their self-confidence as well.
Thigh Lift Surgery
This surgical procedure corrects one’s thighs and buttocks by removing the excess skin and tissues through an incision made in the area. The patient wears an elastic compression garment to reduce swelling. The procedure gives smoother skin and a more contoured lower body. Sagging skin is a commonality but it doesn’t have to be a fixture in your life. These procedures ensure better skin and a higher self-confidence without any difficulty.
