Life After Weight Loss: What Are Your Surgical Options?

Life After Weight Loss: What Are Your Surgical Options?

However you get there — bariatric surgery, diet and exercise, or both — a significant weight loss is an accomplishment worth celebrating. But for some, lingering loose skin can mar their results and conceal the new bodies they’ve worked hard to get. This lax skin doesn’t respond to topical products or extra workouts.

Depending on the placement of the tattoo, it could end up distorted or partially (or even completely) removed. If you are undergoing a mini tummy tuck, only the lower belly will be altered and tightened. However, the upper abdomen is not significantly affected by the surgery. If you opt … Continue reading »

Weight loss: After a significant weight loss, whether achieved through bariatric surgery or the “old fashioned” method of diet and exercise adjustments, a tummy tuck can show off the hard … Continue reading »

Post-Baby Tummy Tuck: What You Should Consider

After having a child, many moms become dissatisfied with their “post-baby” body. When they decide to do something about it, such as a tummy tuck at my Albany, NY practice, they’ve already thoroughly researched the procedure online and arrive at their consultations prepared with questions. Why? Because moms are superwomen. It’s natural to have a lot of questions about something like surgery. I often field many questions about the procedure itself, such as where I make the incision, how long the operation lasts, and whether a patient will spend the night at a hospital or go home the day of … Continue reading »
