After gastric bypass surgery is a time of great change and adjustment after gastric bypass weight loss. When an individual undergoes surgery like gastric bypass, they experience a massively accelerated rate of weight loss from what would occur in with even the most vigorous natural weight loss.  This can be a very exciting time  for patients; they watch as their body is once again revealed to them from underneath the layers of fat that obscured their form for so long.  It can also be a scary time for some : a long and arduous healing process after being literally cut in half, acclimating to new dietary restrictions, and watching with fascination as their bodies shed fat and accumulate folds of skin with equal rapidity.

Prior to gastric bypass surgery, the excess weight impedes one’s ability to partake in the type of regular exercise so necessary to keep the body systems healthy and happy. Sadly, this only further exacerbates the health concerns caused by the weight in the first place.  It would seem the odds are stacked against the obese, and in some ways they are.  Obesity is second only to tobacco use as the leading cause of preventable deaths in America today, and that doesn’t even take into account the fact that cardiac disease is the number one cause of all deaths in the country, claiming over nearly 700,000 lives every year, and diabetes comes in seventh on that same list, taking nearly 100,000 souls annually.

As more Americans are tipping the scales from merely overweight to obese (over sixty percent of American citizens currently classify as overweight, with more than half of that group more accurately described as obese and super obese), it is interesting to note that the stigma associated with obesity does not seem to have diminished accordingly.  It is no wonder that more Americans turn to bariatric surgery to precipitate a permanent loss of those unhealthy and unbecoming pounds.   Memories of even the most painful recovery after bariatric surgery fade in light of the energy and vigor a slim and functional form offers once the body has more fully healed.  Patients are able to partake in activities they perhaps never before thought possible, something as simple as swinging on a playground swing or as daredevil as snowboarding in the winter.  Other after gastric bypass surgery patients are content to enjoy the daily tasks they were incapable of handling before their weight loss surgery; simple actions like talking a walk around the block, driving to the store, gardening in their yard or playing tag with the kids.  This is truly the payoff they have been looking for – a normal life.

Dr.’s Steven Gitt and Domonic Heffel are both dually trained in Plastic Surgery and General Surgery and devote their practices to the surgical care and management of massive weight loss patients. They “double team” (both surgeons conducting surgery together) most of their major bariatric cases such as body lifts. Dr. Heffel practiced bariatric surgery at UCLA prior to training in Plastic Surgery. Dr. Gitt is one of the most highly respected and experienced post-bariatric Plastic Surgeons in the USA. He is on the editorial advisory board of Obesity Help Magazine and has many patient references on Obesityhelp.com. Experience is the key to successful post-bariatric Plastic Surgery.
