What is Post-Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatric surgery can help you lose weight. However, it does come with a downside and that is loose, sagging skin. Many people are so bothered by this that they cannot fully enjoy their new weight. In some cases, it can even interfere with their ability to wear smaller clothes. Those with lots of loose skin may choose post-bariatric surgery to help them look and feel as thin as they truly are.
Benefits of Post-Bariatric Surgery
Skin is elastic, and stretches as your body becomes bigger. That is one reason why the skin you are born with continues to fit you as you grow older. While skin can easily grow larger, it does not shrink quite so easily. As such, people who lose weight often have sagging skin. Post-bariatric surgery ensures your skin fits your new, smaller physique. If you have large folds of skin that hang down, post-bariatric surgery can make you feel more comfortable performing everyday activities.
Who is a Good Candidate for Post-Bariatric Surgery?
Before having post-bariatric surgery, you should be at your ideal weight for at least a year. You should also be well-treated for any underlying health concerns related to your obesity such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
How are Post-Bariatric Surgery Procedures Performed?
By trimming away excess skin and then tightening it with sutures. Think of post-bariatric surgery as a type of procedure in which excess tissue is pulled taught so that it no longer droops or sags.
