What is Post-Bariatric Surgery Body Contouring?
The benefits of significant weight loss include: longer, better quality of life; eased pressure on joints, feet and back; better sex drive and more confidence, just to name a few. Whether significant weight loss occurs from exercise and dieting changes or from a procedure such as gastric bypass, this achievement is no small feat. You can imagine then the frustration or sense of hopelessness for weight loss achievers when losing the weight alone doesn’t create the toned and smooth physique that was the goal during the months, even years of sacrifice and hard work. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Hovsepian understands this and offers Body Contouring procedures to improve the shape and tone of your underlying tissue and remove excess skin and fat.
If you’ve reached your weight loss goal and have maintained your healthy weight, you are a perfect candidate for Dr. Hovsepian’s personalized approach to full post-bariatric body contouring. Removing excess skin can eliminate very uncomfortable and unsightly rashes that are caused from having excess skin after dramatic weight loss. Other areas that are often targeted are the buttocks, thighs, knees, abdomen, back and arms. Tightening the skin in those areas can reveal your toned physique that you've worked so hard to achieve and help you continue along your journey of emotional recovery after significant weight loss.
Schedule your consultation with Dr. Hovsepian in his Beverly Hills or Newport Beach office and let him talk with you and get to know your specific needs and concerns so he can make recommendations based on what is best for you. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian meets with each patient individually to determine the best course of action to achieve the very best results. Depending on the amount of correction needed, Dr. Hovsepian uses both non-invasive and surgical procedures to create a firm and flat body contour.
