POST BARIATRIC COSMETIC SURGERY


Face Lift (Rhytidectomy) & Neck Lift, Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty), Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)

Significant weight loss from bariatric/gastric bypass surgery, diet, or exercise can accelerate aging of the facial areas and lead to sagging of the facial skin. Facial aging occurs faster in individuals who have lost significant weight because the fatty layer beneath the skin surface thins and diminishes at a much faster rate compared to a person who has not a lot of weight in a quick period. In general, this fatty layer is largely responsible for creating a youthful look in a person's face. Since this fatty layer loses its thickness following significant weight loss, this results in facial lines and wrinkles becoming more noticeable. To rejuvenate one's appearance and treat facial aging problems, post-weight loss patients have a Face Lift. In most cases, a facelift will also include a neck lift. The neck lift can be an especially important component of a post-weight loss patient's facial rejuvenation treatment because excess skin and fat can accumulate in the neck area after significant weight loss. A face lift, combined with a neck lift, can effectively treat the deep wrinkles, facial skin sagginess, and excess neck skin and fat by removing the sagging skin and tightening the facial skin and underlying muscle tissues.
As a face lift treats the lower part of the face and neck regions, post-weight loss patients can have an Eye Lid Surgery and Brow Lift (forehead lift) to treat the upper area of their faces. An eyelid surgery is a popular procedure which can rejuvenate the appearance of a person's eyes by correcting problems such as drooping and heavy eyelids, skin sagging in the eye area, and under-eye bags. Additionally, a brow lift (forehead lift) is a cosmetic procedure that can help raise one's drooping eyebrows, reduce the horizontal forehead creases, tighten the forehead skin, and remove excess tissue. 

Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)
Excess hanging skin and fat in the lower body and especially the thighs is a major concern after significant weight loss and can be both physically unappealing and inconvenient. Following weight loss, the thigh can look wrinkled and excessively baggy. A Thigh lift (Thighplasty) can help reduce this excess skin and fat in the thigh areas. A thigh lift is commonly combined with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and buttock lift. A body lift is the general term for the procedure that combines the tummy tuck, thigh, and buttock lifts.

Buttock Lift
As is the case with a thigh lift, a buttock lift can address the problems of excess skin and fat that can accumulate in the buttocks area. A buttock lift is commonly combined with a thigh lift and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Following significant weight loss due to bariatric/stomach stapling surgery, diet, or exercise, male patients may still have large breasts that are not in proportion with their newly improved abdomen and lower body. In many cases, a patient will also have droopiness in his breasts in addition to large breasts, or just droopy breasts. To correct these problems, post-weight loss male patients have a Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia). This procedure can be performed in conjunction with a Liposuction.

Liposuction
Liposuction is not a procedure that alone can solve problems that arise following significant weight loss. Provided that the skin is tight enough and not too loose, liposuction can be performed in conjunction with some of the procedures discussed earlier to help reduce excess fat in specific, localized areas. Typically, areas such as the arms, male breast, back, flanks, knees, calves can be treated by liposuction while other areas are more effectively treated by a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast lift (mastopexy), thigh lift (thighplasty), breast augmentation, and arm lift.
