Post Bariatric and Weight-Loss Surgery
Significant weight loss can improve your overall health, but sometimes, there are areas of extra skin and fat that can lead to skin irritation and rashes. Body contouring procedures can complete your weight-loss transformation and enhance your appearance. In addition to providing first-rate surgical care, we work closely with the Yale Bariatric Surgery Program to help care for all aspects of your well-being. A multidisciplinary team composed of surgeons, nutritionists and exercise specialists all help to ensure successful long-term results. Support programs are also available to help you achieve your personal weight-loss goals, dietary goals, and stress management.
Most patients who have had massive weight loss require multiple procedures to optimize their shape. To provide the best possible result, body contouring surgery is typically planned after your weight is stabilized. We realize that each patient has specific goals, and we offer a broad spectrum of state-of-the-art surgical services that can be individualized specifically for you.
