Body Contouring After Weight Loss Des Moines

Post-Bariatric Cosmetic Surgery

Following major weight loss, many men and women find that their bodies are still harboring excess skin and fat — despite diet and exercise. These issues often persist, even after reaching a healthy body weight.

If you want to improve the shape and tone of your body after weight loss, it may be time to consider body contouring with Des Moines plastic surgeon, Dr. David Robbins. Body contouring is a versatile surgery that targets several problem areas in a single surgery.

When to Consider Body Contouring

Body contouring after weight loss is designed to treat multiple regions of your body in a single surgery, and can be custom-tailored to address your problem areas. You may be a good candidate for body contouring if you:

  • Have reached your ideal weight and have been stable for at least a year
  • Are suffering with excess skin and stubborn pockets of fat
  • Are healthy and realistic about the surgery

Though body contouring won’t necessarily give you a “perfect” body, it can significantly improve your appearance and quality of life. Often times it also allows a person to exercise without annoying skin getting in the way and makes clothes fit more comfortably.

You can determine if body contouring is right for you by scheduling a personal cosmetic consultation with Dr. Robbins. He is Iowa’s only quadruple board certified plastic surgeons, and he specializes in cosmetic surgery.

FAQs

  • What happens during body contouring?

    Because body contouring is tailored to address each individual’s specific body type and cosmetic concerns, the actual surgical details can vary considerably.

    Some of our most popular body contouring procedures include: tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, arm lift surgery and body lift surgery. Each of these procedures will be discussed at length during your complimentary cosmetic consultation with Dr. Robbins.

  • When can I resume my normal routine?

    Surgery will take place in our fully accredited operating room located at our office. Once you return home from surgery, you should plan on spending the first few days in bed resting. A post recovery document explaining how to take care of yourself after surgery will be given to you before you leave our office.

    One will also be sent to your home before surgery for your review. After approximately 5 to 7 days, light physical activity is recommended. In general, recovery times vary depending on the number of procedures performed as well as other factors.

    Most patients should anticipate up to four weeks of limited activity. Dr. Robbins will provide you specific post-operative instructions for returning to work and other routines during your follow-up appointments.

  • Is there any way to avoid scarring?

    Scarring can be minimized, but not avoided completely. Scars are an inevitable part of the healing process, but Dr. Robbins will do everything in his power to conceal incision lines within the natural folds of your body.

    Scarring is an important consequence to consider prior to electing surgery; however, most of our patients consider the resulting scars a fair trade-off after seeing their final results.

  • Will my final results be permanent?

    Body contouring will produce significant, long-lasting results. However, it’s important to note that your body will not be immune to the natural aging process. Additionally, significant weight changes may impact your results over time.

  • What are some of the risks associated with body contouring?

    Like all major surgeries, body contouring presents a degree of risk. Some of these risks include adverse reaction to anesthesia, infection, numbness, undesirable scarring and prolonged healing. These risks are rare and will be discussed in-depth during your cosmetic consultation with Dr. Robbins here at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™.

It’s important to have choices! But too many choices can start to feel overwhelming. Remembering these 4 S’s can help guide your decision and discussion with your plastic surgeon:

1) Silicone vs Saline
2) Size
3) Surgical Incision
4) Selection

Real Women. Real Results.
Jenn @where_is_jenn decided to have a breast augmentation when she was in her twenties. But after 7 years, she wasn’t satisfied with the aesthetic results so she opted to have a breast revision. This time she did her research to get the fit that was just right for her. Jenn chose Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive “enhanced fullness” breast implants for a fuller look with more roundness on top.
...

Dessiree always felt flat chested growing up. She worried about how her breasts would look in different outfits and didn’t feel comfortable without a push-up bra.

After a lot of consideration, she found a plastic surgeon who recommended Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive Breast Implants for the look she wanted.

Now Dessiree considers her choice to get breast augmentation “one of the best decisions” she’s ever made.

What about you? If her before picture looks like your body shape and her after picture looks like the results you want, snap a pic and share it with during your consultation.
