Cosmetic Surgeon, New Jersey, Dr. Parker – Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery
With the growing popularity of gastric bypass surgery to treat morbid obesity we have seen a dramatic increase in patients seeking facial and body contouring after this procedure. The massive weight loss which occurs following bypass surgery results in excess, sagging skin. Our goal is to remove the extra skin in affected areas and leave scars which are as inconspicuous as possible. Post Bariatric procedures are commonly combined with abdominoplasty, body lifts, breast lifts, breast augmentation, or face lifts.
The surgeries are performed in a safe, certified facility one year after bypass surgery or when weight loss has plateaued for three to six months.
