Post Weight Loss Procedures Southlake
Patients who undergo bariatric surgery and subsequently lose massive amounts of weight frequently discover that shedding the pounds was merely the first part of their body transformation. Once the weight has been lost, patients often find that they are left with excess, sagging skin. As well as localized fat deposits in various places on their bodies. This can include their stomach, thighs, hips, back, arms and breasts. To address these issues, Dr. Bledsoe provides a wide variety of post-weight loss and body sculpting procedures.
Post-Weight Loss & Body Sculpting Procedures Offered by Dr. Bledsoe
Body Lift – This procedure can include upper body lift, lower body lift or total body lift. It is a major procedure that addresses large areas of skin and rolls of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise due to skin inelasticity. By removing excess skin and tightening the remaining tissues, Dr. Bledsoe is able to restore firmness and shapeliness to problematic body areas.
Tummy Tuck – After weight loss most skin on the stomach skin refuses to shrink. A tummy tuck may be the best option. Patients who have loose stomach skin and stretched-out abdominal muscles are the best candidates for this major procedure. After Dr. Bledsoe eliminates excess skin and tightens the underlying muscles, tummy tuck patients are left with a firm, tight abdomen.
Liposuction – Less invasive than body lift or tummy tuck, liposuction is ideal for attacking those stubborn pockets of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise. Patients whose skin retains its elasticity may only need liposuction alone to achieve the body toning they desire. Others may require liposuction in combination with more invasive procedures such as body lift or tummy tuck.
Breast lift – Women who have lost a large amount of weight frequently are left with breasts that are saggy and/or deflated. Breast lift provided by Dr. Bledsoe can help them regain a more youthful profile. Breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation with silicone or saline breast implants to restore breast volume.
Arm lift – For patients who wish to rid themselves of the dreaded flab on the upper arms, this procedure may be the only solution. Stretched-out arm skin that has lost its elasticity can only be eliminated through surgical extraction.
Thigh lift – Rolls of skin and fat on the inner thighs can cause chaffing and rashes. Surgical removal of excess skin and tightening of the remaining tissue can eliminate this discomfort and restore a shapely look to the upper legs.
These are a few of the post-bariatric procedures provided by the renowned Grapevine cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Bledsoe.
