Body contouring is an excellent way to remove excess skin and tissue to create a smoother, more natural body shape. Body contouring is particularly helpful to individuals who have lost significant weight after undergoing bariatric surgery and who want to get rid of uncomfortable folds of excess skin. Dr. Paul M. Glat offers post-bariatric aesthetic treatment and body contouring surgery at his office in the Philadelphia area to assist patients who want to achieve a more attractive figure following dramatic weight loss.

Comprehensive Post-Bariatric Body Contouring

Bariatric surgery is a potentially life-saving procedure for the morbidly obese. By undergoing bariatric surgery to reduce the stomach’s capacity, obese individuals can lose significant weight and enjoy accompanying health benefits. Unfortunately, significant weight loss often leaves loose folds of excess skin and other tissue where there was once fat. Post-bariatric body contouring surgery aims to remove this unneeded, uncomfortable tissue in order to restore a more defined shape and attractive appearance to the patient.

Post-Bariatric Body Contouring Surgery

Post-bariatric surgery typically requires comprehensive body lifting to address loose skin all over the body. During a body contouring procedure such as this, Dr. Paul M. Glat will make discreet incisions and remove excess skin from those areas, stretching and tightening the remaining skin. In some cases, Dr. Glat may use liposuction to remove some additional fat during a post-bariatric body contouring procedure.

After Post-Bariatric Body Contouring Surgery

It is important for patients to understand that post-bariatric surgery is complex and invasive and involves a lengthy recovery period. Dr. Glat’s post-bariatric surgery patients should plan to spend up to six weeks recovering at home after leaving the hospital, depending on the extent of the procedure. Dr. Glat and his staff will customize post-bariatric body contouring surgery at his practice outside of Philadelphia to meet the specific needs and goals of each patient.
