Orange County specialist team treats post weight loss complications with body contouring surgery
By Thomas T. Nguyen, M.D
Many patients experience post-procedure cosmetic complications after a gastric bypass. Weight loss surgery in Orange County can induce dramatic losses! The rest of your body, especially the skin, has grown with you. When your body shrinks, the skin can’t bounce right back to fit your new physique. The resulting loose, saggy skin produces new sources of anxiety over how you look, and can cause health challenges, such as:
Skin infections in hard-to-reach and hard-to-clean folds
Good candidates for surgical body contouring have generally stabilized their weight to no more than a five pound loss over a three to six-month period. Non-smokers free of healing and medical related risks to surgery are welcome to move forward with a consultation with Dr. Nguyen. It’s important to maintain the same type of positive outlook and commitment to a healthy lifestyle that led to you being a good candidate for the surgery in the first place.
A customized path to reveal your natural beauty
Body contouring approaches are unique to you. In general, Dr. Nguyen may recommend the following procedures, some of which can often be combined to reduce the amount of time you’re at the Fountain Valley office:
Facelift to address sagging cheeks, jowls, and neckline
Breast lift for droopy or flattened chests
Tummy tuck to remove excess abdominal skin
Lower body lift for the removal of excess skin on the abdomen, butt, groin, and outer thighs
Inner, outer, and mid-thigh excess may be removed with a medial thigh lift
Saggy upper arms benefit from an arm lift
Factors that influence the doctor’s approach to your post weight loss surgery include your age, health, and, notably, the amount of weight lost.
