Plastic Surgery after Weight Loss: Start Planning Now

If you are considering a weight loss procedure in Walnut Creek such as bariatric surgery, it’s important to start planning the plastic surgery phase of your transformation now. Many people who experience massive weight loss experience a reduction in skin laxity. By consulting a qualified plastic surgeon now, you can understand the different body contouring options available and have time to make the right decision for you.

To start planning your post-weight loss surgery, I suggest scheduling a meeting with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the following:

Your expectations: Discuss your goals for surgery and your expectations about the results. Your surgeon can provide you with a realistic idea of what can be achieved through the combination of weight loss and surgery.

Your priorities: Achieving the results you want often takes multiple procedures. Discuss your priorities with your surgeon. Your surgeon can then work with you to customize a treatment plan.

Timing: Most people are required to maintain a stable weight for several months before having plastic surgery. Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your progress and help you determine when you are physically and psychologically ready for surgery.
