Plastic Surgery and Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss

Some are able to lose weight on their own. Others chose weight loss surgery. Bariatric Surgery and Gastric Bypass Surgery are surging in popularity. With massive weight loss in a short time, skin often does not shrink well. Body contouring plastic surgery can help deal with this extra skin and give such individuals a new image after losing weight.

During weight loss, Body Shaping Compression Garments can contour and shape lessening the stress of evolving tissues until they stabilize for surgery.

Weight loss in men can result in drooping loose chest skin.

In men, fat can collect about the chest region resulting in female like breast contours. Weight reduction can help with the fat, residual gland and extra skin can remain a problem.

Residual gland, no longer hidden by the fat, can become more prominent. Gynecomastia surgical sculpture can manage this concern.

Sagging can result in displaced nipples and areola well below their normal locations at lower edge of the pectoral muscles. Chest skin reduction techniques in men are an option. Skin reduction scars can be an issue. That is why Dr. Bermant evolved his Short Scar Internal Male Mastopexy chest contouring surgery. Superficial Fascia Suspension Tissue is lifted allowing the skin to redrape with a small external scar.

Weight loss is a coarse tool, you cannot pick where the weight comes from. You also cannot pick where the weight goes back onto. Plastic Surgery is better as a refinement tool after losing weight.
Some of Dr. Bermant's patients chose to lose weight after surgery and their skin compensates well. However, as a surgical sculptor, Dr. Bermant prefers to use the coarse tool of losing weight first and then refine with Plastic Surgery sculpture.
