Surgery after Significant Weight Loss
As society pushes for a healthier lifestyle and in conjunction with the advent of Bariatric (Weight Loss) Surgery Vivek is now seeing an increasing number of patients who have lost significant amounts of weight and who are now unhappy with their body image and shape.
For some of these patients there may be specific issues that can be treated with an individual procedure, however for some others the solution may involve a series of surgical procedures to achieve what is sometimes referred to as a “Complex Body Lift”. This is likely to involve the removal of excess skin and fat which thereafter will require some body contouring such as liposuction and / or breast surgery.
Vivek has been working in cooperation with Bariatric Specialists over several years and has developed a great deal of knowledge in this area. This allows him to develop a treatment roadmap ensuring that consideration has been given to the correct, planning, sequencing and timing of these procedures to meet each individual patient’s needs and to optimise their result.
These procedures by their nature are complex and require a great deal of thought and discussion between the surgeon and it is important that you meet with Vivek and talk through all the possibilities if you are considering this type of surgery.
