What to Expect@headingTag>
Considering the extensive amount of skin to be removed, this surgery is performed at a local hospital or an accredited ambulatory surgical center with overnight stay capabilities. The plastic surgeon may also separate the surgeries to occur 3 – 6 months apart to allow for healing, which is dependent on the patient’s health and other medical conditions, as well as to curtail excessive blood loss and limit the risk of infection.
Once cleared by our medical team to perform regular physical activity, our after weight loss surgery patients report to having more mobility and range of motion when doing basic, everyday activities. With all of the extra skin eliminated, they also report feeling dramatically different in their clothes and exude a higher self-confidence. Recovery time for each patient is different, and it will depend on the nature and extent of the surgery performed, as well as the combination of surgeries. Our team does our best to educate each patient on the procedures and how to care for their operative sites after surgery.
