A recent increase in the number of bariatric surgeries in the United States has kindled a surge in post bariatric body contouring procedures. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons – of which Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole is a member – massive weight loss surgeries have resulted in an increased demand for liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, and breast lift surgery among others. These procedures are often combined following significant weight loss to help optimize results and address the many problems a rapid loss of weight can cause.
If you have lost massive amounts of weight and are interested in body contouring, call board-certified Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole at (626) 689-7800 to schedule a free consultation today.
Bariatric surgery deals with weight loss, but cannot make skin shrink to the body’s new contours. This often leaves people who have undergone surgery with loose and sagging skin throughout the body – skin that make them look disproportionate, lumpy, and uncomfortable. What’s more, this excess skin can continue to cause physical and emotional difficulties, even when the weight is gone.
If you are dealing with the effects of massive weight loss and are ready to take steps for optimal body sculpting, please contact Pasadena Cosmetic Surgery today. Dr. O’Toole welcomes patients from all areas of California.
