Post Weight Loss

Gastric bypass surgery has helped many patients improve their lives through successful weight loss. Unfortunately, a large amount of lost weight often results in severe excesses of skin and fat throughout the body. This extra tissue can be unsightly and may cause problems such as back and neck pain. Poorly fitting clothing is also a common complaint. Body reduction surgery can remove this extra tissue and restore better proportions to a person’s body. Extra skin and fat can be removed from the abdomen, arms, thighs, back, breasts and neck. Patients are generally very happy with their appearance after surgery and report that clothing fits better and they are less self-conscious.
