Body Lift and Post-bariatric Reconstruction Procedures – Suffolk County, Long Island

Body contouring procedures are designed to remove excess skin and tissue from all areas of the body, especially after significant weight loss. These are some of the most complex cosmetic surgery procedures to perform, requiring the attention of a highly qualified, board-certified surgeon like Dr. Lloyd Landsman. With many years of experience and specialized training, Dr. Landsman is able to offer superior body lifting and post-bariatric reconstruction at his Suffolk County practice on Long Island. His patients enjoy amazingly natural-looking surgical results with as little scarring as possible.

Body Lift

Body lift surgery treats lax excess skin that affects multiple areas of the body. After weight loss, the skin that once contained the extra weight is left hanging loose in folds on the body. Using a comprehensive body lift procedure, Dr. Landsman is able to remove these folds of skin from both the upper and lower body, making the patient's skin fit the body more tightly in order to enhance the body's contour.

Each body lift candidate's body is unique, requiring an approach to surgery that is tailored to his or her needs. Excess skin may be present in different proportions on different parts of the body. Surgical incisions can also be located somewhat differently in order to conceal scars while accounting for the patient's clothing preferences. Dr. Landsman works closely with each body lift patient at his Suffolk County, Long Island practice to plan an approach to surgery that best meets his or her needs.

Body lift is one of the most complex and involved procedures a cosmetic surgery patient can undergo, and patients should be prepared for a significant recovery time following the procedure. Any discomfort during recovery is regulated with appropriate medication. Dr. Landsman may recommend a compression garment to control swelling and speed recovery.

Post-bariatric Reconstruction

Bariatric surgery is a very effective treatment for obesity, allowing patients who are significantly overweight to lose large amounts of weight and dramatically improve their health. Many patients who undergo bariatric surgery lose 100 pounds of excess body fat or more. Afterward, they are almost always left with large folds of empty, hanging skin in multiple places on the body and extremities. This condition may be both uncomfortable and frustrating, as patients are often still dissatisfied with their appearance despite working to lose weight and get healthy.

Post-bariatric reconstruction, performed by Dr. Landsman in Suffolk County, Long Island, is a comprehensive surgical treatment for the skin incorporating procedures such as body lift, tummy tuck, breast lift, thigh lift, and arm lift to sculpt the entire body after massive weight loss. In some cases, liposuction may be used for fine sculpting or to remove small amounts of additional fat. Each post-bariatric reconstruction procedure is totally unique, owing to the unique nature of each patient's body.

As with body lift surgery, patients who undergo post-bariatric reconstruction with Dr. Landsman at his Suffolk County practice on Long Island should expect to spend several weeks recovering after surgery. Patients should also be prepared for some scarring, though Dr. Landsman always works to locate scars where they will be concealed by clothing. On the other hand, few procedures offer more potential benefit than post-bariatric reconstruction to plastic surgery patients. A successful post-bariatric reconstruction surgery is often the final key to lasting self-esteem and a health.
