Plastic Surgery After Bariatric Surgery: Jumpstart Your New Life

There is one thing that always makes all of us at VIDA Wellness and Beauty Center genuinely happy: post-bariatric patients who have changed their bodies, reached their target weight and are excited about their post-bariatric life. What’s next? We’re sure this “new you” has opened up new possibilities! Let’s talk about having cosmetic surgery after bariatric surgery, the final step of your weight loss transformation.

Post-Bariatric Cosmetic Surgery

Thanks to bariatric surgery, patients can lose up to 80% of their body weight. This is a definite success, however, after losing that amount of weight it’s natural to be left with heavy, sagging extra skin folds all over your body. The good news?  Post-bariatric cosmetic surgery can help you say goodbye to that last reminder of your heavier self.

What better way to celebrate beating obesity than by looking better than ever? Our team of dedicated plastic surgeons offers procedures specifically designed to help post-bariatric patients make the most out of the weight they lost.

Plastic Surgery for Bariatric Patients: what diet and exercise can’t do for you.

What our doctors understand, and you should too, is that getting bariatric surgery is going to change your body and the way you feel about it! At VIDA Bariatrics we love seeing our patients rediscover self-love and pride about the way they look and feel. Post-bariatric plastic surgery is the cherry on top: the culmination of your dedication and effort, of going through a procedure and following a diet plan, of changing your habits.

Post-Bariatric Surgery Plastic Surgery

These are some of the most popular post-bariatric surgery plastic surgery options that should be on your radar:

Body Lift. Sometimes separated into lower body lift and upper body lift, these are a combination of post-weight loss plastic surgeries carefully tailored to your body. Your plastic surgeon will customize your body lift procedure with you, employing procedures such as tummy tucks, butt lifts, arm or thigh liposuction, and a breast lift. The results are even better than you’d imagine:

Tummy tuck. Having a tummy tuck after bariatric surgery is one of the most sought-after procedures by post-bariatric patients. When there are sagging skin and stubborn pockets of fat in our abdomens, there’s little diet and exercise can do. An expertly performed abdominoplasty is the most effective way to remove excess skin in your stomach.

Breast surgery: breast lift or breast augmentation. Bariatric patients can be left with sagging breasts. Give your chest area extra help with either a breast lift, an augmentation with implants or a combination of both. A breast lift for bariatric patients will give you a more youthful appearance, removing or reversing the effects of massive weight loss and gravity! Just look at this amazing transformation:

As our surgeons like to put it, the combination of plastic and bariatric surgery is an invaluable medical tool to give you your life back: decrease obesity-related diseases, fall in love with your body again, wear the clothes you want…enjoy this new life, because truly, you’ve earned it!

Our team of VIDA surgeons will help you determine if you are a good candidate for post-bariatric plastic surgery, by looking at factors such as your weight and the stability of it, how your health has improved after bariatric surgery, and how well you have followed up on your commitment to following a healthy lifestyle.
