Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
What Is Post Bariatric Body Contouring Surgery Like?
In many cases, several of these procedures are combined to produce more comprehensive results. They may be performed during a single surgical session or during multiple sessions.
At the start of the surgery, general anesthesia is administered. Next, incisions are made to provide access to the underlying tissues. Liposuction is used to contour away stubborn fat deposits, and a scalpel is used to remove drooping skin. Finally, surgical sutures are used to close the incisions; these are typically removed during a follow-up appointment.
Healing After Post Bariatric Body Contouring Surgery
Once your body contouring surgeries have been performed, you will need to heal and recover. This process will involve a degree of bruising and swelling in the sculpted areas. To minimize these issues, it is best to wear an elastic post-surgical garment and to use ice packs as recommended. Elastic garments also help the skin better contour to the reshaped area.
Avoiding strenuous activities like sports and physically taxing exercise routines is vital. This will ensure that your incisions are not damaged. You will also need to take time off from work. Once all healing is complete, you will be able to enjoy your body’s new and improved contours without any sagging excess skin.
Body Contouring Cost
Because there are a number of procedures that can be performed to remove excess skin and stubborn fat after bariatric surgery, the cost of your procedure will vary. Many details of the surgery impact price, including the amount of time the surgical session will take, the techniques used, and the amount of tissue to be removed.
