Patients who undergo different types of bariatric treatment normally have mixed feelings about their bodies immediately after the weight loss treatment; one of the most common complaints after someone has undergone such a serious and rapid weight loss experience following bariatric surgery is the presence of lots of loose skin. If you are troubled with loose flabby skin after bariatric surgery in India, there are a number of procedures that your bariatric surgeon could suggest as a way of shrinking or completely removing the excess skin.

There are now available advances in laser guided liposuction for treatments such as SmartLipo that allow for the shrinkage of flabby skin. You may want to speak to your bariatric surgeon about surgical procedures so that they can refer you to a reconstructive surgeon who has enough experience in body contouring following weight loss surgery. There are a number of treatments for the removal of excess tissue some of which can involve some extensive surgical procedures. Bariatric treatment patients who want to get rid of excess skin can choose from some basic procedures such as abdominoplasty also known as tummy tuck, branchioplasty or arm lift as well as mastopexy which is also known as breast lift. There are other more complicated procedures such as lower body lifts and lateral tension abdominoplasty.

Body lift surgery is among the most common procedures that are normally employed to improve a person’s appearance following bariatric surgery in India; this is among the more permanent solutions but you must be able to maintain a stable weight to continue enjoying the results. The surgeon will normally make an incision along the patient’s abdomen to remove all the excess, sagging skin before lifting and tightening the buttocks, waist, hips, thighs and abdomen using the same procedure. Liposuction can be used in a place where there is fat that needs to be removed in order to improve the body’s contours. There are also other treatments such as buttock augmentation to deal with buttocks that may have flattened as a result of rapid weight loss. Your bariatric surgeon may also choose to recommend body lift surgery which will dramatically change your appearance with results that can be said to be permanent with only a little natural firmness getting lost as a result of aging.

The good news is that many insurance companies can pay for some of these procedures when they are classified as reconstructive and meant to restore a person’s normal function and structure. Similarly any surgical corrections of cosmetic defects that have a significant impact on the functioning of anybody parts could also be covered. Reconstructive surgery following bariatric treatment is supposed to address health concerns as opposed to altering your looks and that is why your health insurer will most likely pay for it.
