Post Bariatric Surgery in Boca Raton at Farber Plastic Surgery
Congratulations on your weight loss! The handshakes, pats on the back, and hugs from friends, family, and colleagues feel wonderful. Bariatric surgery has not only made you healthier, but it may have also saved your life. People do notice, however, that you seem to still have a sense of sadness, and you feel it too. You still carry a secret — underneath your clothes are flaps of skin, the result of lost elasticity caused by the excess weight.
What Is Post Bariatric Surgery?
Now is the time to feel and look your best. The hardest part is over and post bariatric surgery is your final step to having a more toned and attractive body, no matter what clothing you wear. Dr. Farber works to restore the natural contours of your body by using several techniques that are considered the “gold standard” in post bariatric surgery.
Is Post Bariatric Surgery Right for Me?

How Is Post Bariatric Surgery Performed?
Based on the extent of your post bariatric surgery, Dr. Farber may recommend that you undergo several procedures over time, including a body lift, breast lift, and thigh lift. You should be cautious of plastic surgeons who recommend doing your surgery all at once if you need to have several areas of your body treated, as too much trauma to your body will extend your recovery and could even place your health at risk. Post bariatric surgery is used to remove excess skin and fat and possibly reposition your nipples, belly button, and other physical features to give you a more natural appearance.
