Post-bariatric Surgery Candidates
The best candidates for bariatric surgery are people with a BMI of 35-40. Those with obesity-related conditions like diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, reflux disease, or sleep apnea can benefit from this procedure. The problem is that patients often have excess skin following their surgery. Therefore, post-bariatric surgery may be a good choice if you want to contour your body and remove excess skin.
Post-bariatric Surgery Procedure
Post-bariatric surgery can often be done in a single session. However, sometimes it must be performed in stages under general anesthesia. If you have a history of smoking, deep venous thrombosis or clotting disorders, a high BMI, or other risk factors, additional precautions must be taken to ensure a successful outcome. This procedure can include several surgeries, including:
It’s normal to feel discomfort after this procedure. At the end of the process, drainage tubes may be inserted and left in for several days to remove extraneous blood and fluid. You may also need a soft bra and/or a compression garment. Strenuous activity should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. Scars from the procedures will naturally fade within a few months following the operation.
