Body Contouring and Reshaping after

Extensive Weight Loss

A sharp increase in bariatric surgery has resulted in a spike in the population of patients seeking body-contouring procedures. Skin and soft tissue redundancy of the trunk, buttocks, breasts, upper arms, and thighs following massive weight loss is unsightly and results in medical problems such as musculoskeletal strain from increased tissue weight, intertrigo or functional limitation with walking, maintaining adequate hygiene, bowel and bladder habits and sexual activity. These elements compound the inherent psychosocial issues related to massive weight loss. Using time-tested plastic surgical techniques, Dr. Greenbaum of South Jersey Bariatrics has perfected surgical techniques  to address the needs of these patients. These include thigh and lower body lift, abdominoplasty, as well as brachioplasty or arm lift. Recognizing that there is a qualitative as well as a quantitative difference in the type and amount of tissues in post-bariatric patients these techniques have been suitably refined to optimize outcomes and provide safe and durable re-contouring. Consequently, bariatric surgery and the subsequent weight loss require an additional 2-3 years commitment towards body contouring procedures. Restoring  image through reshaping procedures is an integral part of completing the treatment of post-weight-loss patients. Dr Greenbaum of South Jersey Bariatrics has developed strategic skills in terms of assessment of each patient, careful planning, timing, especially for patient safety and technique are fundamental for the success of these often complex and extensive procedures.  To date, Dr. Greenbaum has successfully completed in excess of 400 cosmetic surgery procedures.
