Body Sculpting Post-Bariatric Surgery: A Healthier You

POSTED ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 06, 2014 AT 11:11 AM  by Dr. Elie Levine

Bariatric surgery is a life changing procedure, giving patients a new lease on life, elevating your self-esteem and laying the foundation for a new, improved lifestyle. Although you may be shedding away pounds and feeling renewed, the weight loss journey is not finished. Post-bariatric surgery, pounds of excess skin may hang over your body, hindering your mobility, preventing you from losing additional weight, and often causing rashes. Clothing selection may still be limited and uncomfortable as well, despite having lost weight, because of awkward folds of hanging skin. At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, we stand behind your weight loss journey, offering the final surgical step to your weight loss success, body sculpting. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, can design a treatment plan that suits your individual needs, getting you one step closer to your ideal body.

Post-bariatric surgery, every area of your body is affected from the dramatic weight loss. Your stomach, legs, arms, face, and chest may be effected. An array of procedures are available to correct the results of extreme weight loss, so you can enjoy a more mobile lifestyle and the quality of life that you deserve:

Sagging Skin
Your arms, back, stomach and buttocks can experience dramatic affects post weight loss. This sagging skin may cause skin irritation, chafing, and prevent clothes from fitting correctly. Our plastic surgeon removes excess skin to help contour these areas for a more sculpted you. Additionally, after extreme weight loss, your breasts may experience sagging, decreased size, loss of symmetry, and even appear “deflated.” Dr. Levine can correct your breasts with breast implants and/or a breast lift, bringing the perky positioning back to your chest.

Rubbing Thighs
Often producing some of the most dramatic results, a thigh lift takes away sagging and excess skin from the inner and outer thigh areas and gives you a much slimmer appearance. Thigh contours are improved for more form-fitting clothing.

Hanging Jowls
Sagging skin on your face and neck area adds years to your appearance. For a more youthful you, our plastic surgeon recommends tightening the skin in your neck and face area. By repositioning this skin with a facelift or necklift, your face will appearance substantially younger and refreshed! Fat transfer can also help smooth the look of hanging jowls. Less invasive than a traditional facelift, fat is taken from a donor location, such as the abdomen or thighs, and inserted throughout the face to create enhanced facial fullness. 

Stubborn Fat
Even after losing hundreds of pounds, trouble areas of fat may not be conquered with diet and exercise alone. Liposuction can remove small deposits of fat to shape remaining flabby areas.

Stretch Marks
Stretch marks may still mar skin even after weight loss. Using laser skin resurfacing, a more evenly toned and textured skin can be established.

Each body sculpting procedure is custom designed to suit you and your body’s needs. Dr. Elie Levine and his staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about a body lift in NYC. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation.
