Post-Bariatric Surgery Case #130
- Post-Bariatric Surgery
This is a 40 year old female patient who had the gastric sleeve and lost an astonishing 170 pounds. The patient was a good candidate with stable weight and decided to have the procedures at Dr. Kenkel’s Dallas location. Significant weight loss often leaves behind skin and tissue that has lost its elasticity. This can give a slimmer body an irregular look that belies the hard work that went into the weight loss. Body contouring surgery can reshape the skin and tissue to fit the body's new form. She is shown here 2 years following her upper body lift and abdominoplasty (total of 4.1kg removed) and 1 year following thighplasty, flank excision and neck lift (3.7kg).
Surgeon: Jeffrey Kenkel MD, FACS
