Procedure & Recovery

Because each person will need a different mix of surgical procedures, the technique used and the recovery time required will vary. Each of our doctors is a very thorough plastic surgeon, and he or she will take the time to explain surgical details so that you have a complete understanding of what to expect following the procedures.

In some cases, multiple procedures may be combined into a single surgical session to consolidate recovery time. In other cases, particularly when several extensive procedures are needed, the surgeries will need to be “staged” over a period of several months. Our surgeons do this to maximize patient safety and comfort during recovery. Note that all patients must achieve and maintain a stable weight before undergoing a contouring procedure.

No matter which procedures are performed, exercising and leading a healthy lifestyle will help to ensure that you can enjoy the results of your post bariatric surgery for a long time to come.
