Post Bariatric Surgery FAQs
Depending on the patient, excess skin leftover from significant weight loss can be distributed at varying locations around the body. As such, post-bariatric plastic surgery addresses different areas of the body for different patients.
The most common areas are the breasts, abdominal region, buttocks, and thighs. As such, the cosmetic surgeries involved in post-bariatric surgery often include breast lift, tummy tuck, body lift, butt lift, arm lift, or a combination of these procedures. Dr. Farber will work with you to determine which procedures best address your unique needs.
Results from post-bariatric surgery in Sarasota are long-lasting, provided the patient follows a healthy lifestyle and eats appropriately following the procedure.
Once excess weight has been lost and skin has been tightened, the body still functions as normal, with extra calories being deposited as fat tissue over time. If the patient continues to eat too many calories and doesn’t engage in enough exercise, the weight will gradually come back.
If, however, the patient regularly engages in physical exercise and maintains a healthy diet, then the results from post-bariatric surgery should be long-lasting.
