Body Contouring After Gastric Bypass in New Orleans

I am absolutely thrilled with my results; my surgery was a complete success.
– Real Patient

Hundreds of thousands of patients undergo gastric bypass surgeries every year as a means to reduce the life-threatening risks associated with obesity. This surgery to reduce the size of the stomach normally results in significant weight loss, but it can also result in sagging skin. And, while your friends and co-workers constantly tell you how great you look in your new clothes, which makes you feel good, you can't help but feel badly about how you look under them. Don't. Feel just as good about how you look underneath and feel comfortable in your clothes with a cosmetic surgery specifically designed to correct the negative effects of gastric bypass.

Post bariatric plastic surgery has proven to be a highly effective and popular solution for body contouring in New Orleans. It sculpts a droopy face, arms, thighs, breasts and buttocks caused by the skin's lack of elasticity after years of being stretched. It can also address other gastric bypass related skin problems, such as a rash. Now that you've done something to lose all of that weight, post bariatric plastic surgery such as a body lift (belt lipectomy), an arm lift, inner thigh lift, tummy tuck and face lift can help you to do something to lose all of that extra skin.

During your initial consultation in our Mandeville office, you can talk with Dr. Cooper about the changes you hope to achieve with body contouring after gastric bypass, and she will work with you to determine the approaches to best accomplish your cosmetic surgery goals. Dr. Cooper likes to schedule an entire hour to meet each new patient. This provides a friendly, unhurried atmosphere for her to provide you with all the information you will need to make educated decisions about post bariatric body contouring.

Hear what some of our happiest
patients say about their experience.

Dr. Cooper will ask you about the precise changes you desire, talk about the various types of body contouring options, discuss incision sizes and locations, as well as the risks and benefits associated with the numerous plastic surgery options open to patients who have undergone a gastric bypass. Because this is major surgery, your medical history and overall health must be taken into consideration prior to surgery. Dr. Cooper will be able to recommend a diet and exercise program that will help you physically prepare for your procedures. Your health and safety are very important to Dr. Cooper, and she will work with you to help insure a successful surgical outcome.

Two weeks prior to your surgery, you will meet with Dr. Cooper again to discuss all pre- and post-operative instructions, and to confirm the procedural plans previously discussed.

Due to the overall looseness of the skin, post bariatric plastic surgery requires that Dr. Cooper consider the body as a whole, rather than just the obvious areas where skin droops. The larger more extensive procedures are typically performed at an inpatient facility or hospital; the smaller procedures at an outpatient facility. A family member or friend will need to drive you home and provide assistance during the first 24 to 48 hours. You and your care giver will both be provided with Dr. Cooper's cell phone number for any concerns or questions.

With a gastric bypass, you've increased your chances of living longer and improved your quality of life. Now, look better than every with post bariatric plastic surgery. Come see why so many men and women in the New Orleans, Mandeville and Slidell areas trust Dr. Cooper to achieve their most beautifully enhanced selves.
