Plastic Surgery after Lap Band Weight Loss Surgery.
The Lap Band Procedure is a popular surgical procedure to help patients lose a significant amount of weight. The procedure involves placing a band around the stomach which can be tightened or loosened by injecting saline solution to a small port which is placed under the skin. Patients often lose 50 pounds or more after this procedure which is performed by a Bariatric surgeon, a doctor specializing in weight loss surgery.
Once a patient has lost weight approaching goal weight, it is time for Dr. Bresnick to step in. We have considerable experience assisting patients look better after weight loss, including a large experience assisting Lap Band patients. We perform tummy tuck or abdominoplasty when loose or extra skin is present after weight loss. The abdominal muscles can be tightened in many cases as well. Liposuction can be used to contour the midsection, thighs, and other areas to improve shape. Our patients really appreciate the results of body contouring after Lap Band-assisted weight loss because it allows them to enjoy the full effect of better health and looking their best!
