Visit our Baltimore Post Bariatric Surgery page

There are a growing number of overweight and morbidly obese patients who are looking to use bariatric surgery as a way to permanently lose weight. After bariatric surgery, most patients do lose a lot of weight. The result, however, is excessive sagging skin. If you are struggling with excessive skin after a bariatric procedure, browse these post-bariatric surgery before and after pictures to see how double board certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Steven J. Rottman has helped men and women in and around Baltimore, MD, and the surrounding communities.

When a person loses a large amount of weight, an unavoidable consequence is excessive skin laxity. Exercise has no effect on the skin. There are some parts of the body that do firm up after weight loss, but there are other areas where large quantities of excess skin will always be a problem. These include the arms, back, thighs, face, abdomen, and the trunk of the body. Surgical procedures can be used to remove this excessive skin. Surgery can also be used to restore and reshape the underlying contours using post bariatric procedures. These include procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tucks), liposuction, arm lifts (brachioplasty), mastopexy (breast lifts), liposuction, and thigh lifts. These procedures can be performed in conjunction with or without implants and facelifts. One of the pluses that come from undergoing post bariatric surgery is that it helps to reshape and lift up the entire body. Extra hanging skin is removed, leaving the patient with a sleek body contour.
