Chapin Aesthetic – Post-Bariatric Body Lift Philadelphia
Serving Philadelphia, Doylestown, Bucks County, and Montgomery County
When people lose massive amounts of weight, often through bariatric surgery, they can be disappointed to find that they do not have the figure that they had imagined when they first committed to the treatment. The fat may indeed be gone, but often, large amounts of loose skin can remain. Skin that is extremely stretched often becomes damaged. For example, it loses its ability to shrink to a smaller shape. In addition to the valid cosmetic concerns of all this loose skin, the excessive folds of skin can present a health problem, serving as a breeding ground for rashes and infections. This page describes the post-bariatric body lift procedure.
Dr. Scott Chapin is a highly skilled Philadelphia plastic surgery specialist who offers a range of body contouring procedures, including the post-bariatric body lift. If you have lost a lot of weight recently through bariatric surgery, you may be a candidate for this procedure.
Dr. Chapin and the team at Chapin Aesthetics can remove excess skin using a range of different procedures, including abdominoplasty, brachioplasty, and thigh and buttock lift surgeries. Combined, these procedures give you a total body lift, giving you the body contour you have been through so much to achieve.
