Body Contouring Following Weight Loss Surgery
With significant weight loss over a relatively short period of time (usually 15-18 months), the remaining skin often does not retain the elastic qualities necessary to "shrink back down" to your new underlying shape. This often leaves patients with excessive amounts of hanging skin that creates problems such as daily hygiene and finding clothes that fit properly.
A comprehensive approach to the bariatric patient is necessary to achieve the optimal figure following weight loss.
Phil Stephan, MD, understands that a bariatric patient must be treated differently from non-bariatric body contouring patients. What has worked well for many years on other patients simply does not provide adequate shaping and contouring for the bariatric patient. Dr. Stephan is a plastic surgeon with experience and expertise in body contouring surgery for bariatric patients. To make an appointment for a free consultation, please call (940) 264-2600.
