Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia and South Jersey, Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, performs men’s post-bariatric body contouring for patients desiring plastic surgery for men.
Carrying extra weight puts your body under a lot of stress. Your heart works harder to pump blood, oxygen, and nutrients, and your other organs strain to keep up. Our post-bariatric male patients understand the health threats of excessive weight and have worked hard to lose weight.
One of the less talked about effects of being overweight and obese is the damage to your skin. Those extra pounds stretch your skin to the point that the skin cannot “bounce back” into place. Instead, the skin hangs loosely from the arms, breasts, thighs, and abdomen.
Post-bariatric body contouring for men, also known as body lifts, is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that subtract the excess skin from the body. Dr. Glat places incisions in discreet locations that allow him to stretch and tighten the skin, subtract excess skin, and minimize scarring to the extent possible. The full treatment plan for post-bariatric body contouring may require several individual surgeries over a period of time, and some of the procedures may require overnight stays in the hospital.
Excess skin and skin folds not only present cosmetic concerns, but also health concerns. The folds of skin are perfect environments for infections and can even interfere with a patient’s ability to perform daily activities.
Post-bariatric body contouring requires an extended schedule of surgeries with the use of general anesthesia. To find out if you are a good candidate for post-bariatric surgery, call our Philadelphia-area cosmetic surgery office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Glat.
