People who are morbidly obese may suffer from a number of serious health issues, making weight loss necessary.
For those who have undergone bariatrics, the resultant excess skin around the abdomen, waist, legs arms, breast and neck can lead to a new set of health problems, including chronic skin irritation, darkening of the skin, known as hyper pigmentation, and ulcerations.
While the process of losing weight through bariatric can be life changing, these new problems can be stressful and limiting.
San Francisco plastic surgeon Dr. Shahin Javaheri has worked with a number of patients from the Bay Area, who have lost a large amount of weight, and then elected plastic surgery.
Plastic surgery options following bariatrics are varied and focused on specific areas of the body, including lower and upper body lifts, thigh lifts, buttock lifts, arm lifts, breast lifts, and even facelifts.
Every situation is different, so it is best to schedule an appointment to discuss your concerns with Dr. Javaheri.
