About Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery in Baltimore
Post weight loss plastic surgery is not a single procedure – it is a customized set of procedures that Dr. Sinno creates to address your specific anatomy and unique concerns. These procedures commonly include:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast augmentation and/or breast lift
- Thigh and buttock lift
- Upper arm lift
- Lower body lift
During your consultation, Dr. Sinno will take the time to understand your concerns, answer your questions, and create a customized set of procedures that will work best for you and your body. He understands the specific physical and psychological concerns many post weight loss patients have and strives to support them thorough focused attention to individualized care and safety.
What to Expect
Dr. Sinno frequently performs post weight loss plastic surgery in a hospital setting for optimal patient comfort and safety. Most patients receive general anesthesia to ensure they are as comfortable as possible during the procedure. Local anesthesia and intravenous sedation are also possible alternatives, depending on the extent of the surgery.
Most post weight loss patients undergo a series of surgeries that consist of a few procedures at a time and are staggered over several weeks or months to optimize surgical safety and to allow enough time to heal.
After your post weight loss plastic surgery procedure, treated areas will likely be sore, swollen, and bruised. You may need to wear compression garments for the first 2 to 4 weeks to encourage proper healing and minimize swelling. Many patients can return to non-strenuous activity, including work, about 1 to 2 weeks following surgery. You'll be provided with specific post-surgical instructions tailored to the type of surgery performed. While scars cannot be avoided with plastic surgery, Dr. Sinno uses surgical techniques that minimize the number of incisions and strives to make the incisions where they will be concealed by clothing.
Our plastic surgery patients are usually thrilled to finally achieve a more firm, sculpted body after their significant weight loss. These procedures can make a dramatic improvement in your appearance, but you will need to remain at a consistent, healthy weight and stay physically active to maintain your results.
