Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss Indianapolis Carmel Indiana

If you are interested in plastic surgery after weight loss from gastric bypass or other means in Indianapolis, Dr. Janet K. Turkle and Dr. Stanley Harper can help. Large volume weight loss, caused by either dieting and exercise or bariatric surgery, often results in loose and severely sagging skin that detracts from one’s appearance.

Cosmetic surgical procedures can be performed for a patient whose weight has stabilized and is appropriate for their height and body frame. Plastic surgery after weight loss removes the excess loose and sagging skin and can improve the appearance of various areas of the body, including the face, neck and jowls, abdomen, buttocks, groin, thighs, breasts and upper arms.

Depending upon your situation, your cosmetic surgeon might recommend one or more of the following procedures: facelift, breast lift, tummy tuck, panniculectomy, lower body lift, thigh lift and/or brachioplasty (upper arm lift).

Your recovery and healing time depends upon the procedures performed. The results of cosmetic surgery following massive weight loss are visible almost immediately. However, it may take as long as one or two years for the final results to appear. The results are long lasting as long as you maintain a stable weight and general fitness.

A consultation with your cosmetic surgeon will include a discussion of the procedure, post-operative care and follow-up and surgical risks.
