Post Bariatric Surgery Body Contouring Linked to Lasting Results
According to a recent study, patients who choose to have body contouring procedures performed following weight loss through bariatric surgery are more likely to maintain a healthy BMI.
The study, fifteen years in the making, followed patients between the ages of 18 and 50 who had undergone laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB). Those who chose to follow initial weight loss with plastic surgery procedures maintained an average BMI of 24.6, which is within the range considered healthy by the CDC. Those who did not undergo post-bariatric body contouring procedures maintained an average BMI of 31, which is at the lower end of the obesity spectrum.
Board-certified Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai is pleased to offer a full range of body contouring options that can help those who have undergone LAGB maintain a healthy weight. Procedures such as tummy tuck surgery and body lift are ideal for addressing the unique issues caused by significant weight loss. Better yet, when combined with liposuction and other body contouring treatments, tucks and lifts can both assist in healthy weight management and help produce a toned and sleek frame that enhances your LAGB results.
