While obesity is on the rise – so is technology, science and skilled surgeons who are circumventing ways to help us battle the bulge. The debate over what’s causing this epidemic in obesity seems endless and confusing. Diet and exercise aren’t the only solutions. Obese patients sometimes must turn to surgical techniques by experts in bariatric surgery. Dr. Brzowski has years of experience and offers some of the best results in surgery after weight loss Utah has to offer.
Regaining your health through bariatric surgery
Obesity in the United States continues to increase at an epidemic rate. The Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, estimates that 30% of U.S. adults over the age of 20 are now obese. Fortunately, diet and exercise are no longer the only options for treatment of obese patients. In fact, once a patient reaches a certain weight, non-surgical methods of weight loss are usually quite ineffective.
The advent of numerous surgical techniques by experts in bariatric surgery now provides qualifying obese patients with an effective treatment for their illness. Studies have clearly proven that many associated diseases that accompany morbid obesity will improve or completely resolve with the weight loss that follows bariatric surgery.
Body contouring after weight loss
Whether it’s a bundle of joy, genetics, hormones or poor diet there can reach a time in life where you just want a slim, trim body to emerge. Dr. Brian Brzowski of Salt Lake City, Utah sees cases like this all the time. Women and men who need more than dieting or fat removal can offer.
What happens to your skin after bariatric surgery?
Changes in the skin and soft tissues occur to some extent in nearly every patient. They include looseness of the:
- Upper trunk
It’s not unusual for there to be a deflation in the volume of these areas, particularly the breast and buttocks.
Studies have clearly proven that many associated diseases that accompany morbid obesity will improve or completely resolve with the weight loss that follows bariatric surgery.
“Once my patient has gone through weight loss, and attained a look to restore their body image, the contouring allows them to see such a stunning result, they have a much stronger desire to KEEP the weight off,” says Dr. Brzowski. “The bottom line: we see a lot of success with the patients who opt for body contouring!”
Taking the step.
Bariatric surgery is a big step. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).
With Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Brzowski, body contouring can be the cherry on top of the bariatric procedure!
Do your homework, always. Is your surgeon Board-certified and have extensive experience with surgery performed for obese patients? These are all questions you should have resolved prior to any surgical procedure.
