Post-gastric plastic surgery or Post lap band surgery should be viewed as your final step towards achieving the beautifully contoured body that you have always dreamed of. One of the top reasons why people avoid getting plastic surgery after they have a gastric bypass or lap band is because they are unsure of what to expect and are afraid to deal with the after effects of another surgery after recovering from the gastric bypass surgery, which probably occurred 12 to 18 months earlier.

With this in mind, the best way to maintain a positive outlook throughout the surgical process is by knowing what to expect. It is important to remember that your greatly reduced body is likely much healthier after losing so much extra weight.  The effect of weight loss on your heart, lungs and other essential organs is the most positive result of your drastic weight loss. Your joints have also experienced relief from carrying the weight of your body before the surgery.  As a result, plastic surgery to tighten loose skin will be much less traumatic, and less risky, than it would have been before the weight loss.

Plastic Surgery after gastric bypassorlap band surgery is usually a group of procedures that are customized to your specific needs. It is common for people to have excess skin in their abdomen, thighs, arms, buttocks, face, and breasts after they have lost a lot of weight. Although it is possible to combine these surgeries, the best results are usually obtained by concentrating on one or two areas at a time. For instance the lower torso may need a tummy tuck, butt lift and thigh lift (combined these procedures are known as a total body lift or belt lipectomy) which can all be accomplished at the same time.

Once the chosen surgery is completed, bandages will be placed over each incision site and gauze will be placed over the area to minimize swelling and reduce the chance of infection. In some cases you may need to return to your plastic surgeon’s office to get stitches taken out as well but in modern day post-gastric gastric bypassorlap band plastic surgery many times dissolvable stitches are utilized making the surgery much more pleasant and certainly less complicated for you as the patient. Once you are home from the operating room, you may find that it is hard to stand straight up for the first week which is a normal sensation and aids in the healing of your incisions.

Many patients also report feeling weakness in areas in which they had post-gastric bypassorlap band plastic surgery but this is also normal as your body’s tissues are repairing themselves after the trauma of your body contouring procedure.
