Bariatric surgery is an important step for many people striving to overcome obesity and live a healthier life. Many people are able to lose a significant amount of weight after bariatric surgery. Some lose upwards of 100 pounds in the first few years after their procedure.
Unfortunately, you may find that after losing all this weight, you experience loose, sagging skin. This is especially common in the abdominal region, where fat is commonly stored prior to bariatric surgery. If you would like to eliminate this loose sagging skin, a tummy tuck can be an excellent option to help you put the finishing touches on the overhaul of your appearance so that you can look and feel your very best.
Dr. Mark Crispin can perform a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and fat and tighten loose abdominal muscles. Remaining skin is then tightened, providing you with a more toned, flat stomach region. If you can also benefit from sculpting and tightening in other areas such as the lower back, buttocks, and thighs, then Dr. Crispin may recommend a body lift for enhanced results.
