Determining Candidacy For Post-Bariatric Body Contouring

blog 2Post-bariatric body contouring can often provide a solution for eliminating excess skin resulting from dramatic weight loss, which may occur after successful bariatric surgery, strict adherence to a diet and exercise program, or both. At our practice, Dr. Jeffrey Copeland reminds patients that while body contouring is often very effective at restoring a natural appearance to skin after weight loss, it’s an operation that requires an extensive consultation, customized treatment plan, and thorough examination of one’s health history. Other requirements for post-bariatric body contouring typically include:

  • Approval from patient’s primary doctor
  • Clearance from relevant specialists (such as cardiologist or diabetes doctor)
  • Consultation with the anesthesiologist well before the date of surgery

Since obesity and excess weight can have a lasting impact on health, it’s essential that each individual undergo a thorough medical evaluation before proceeding with a surgical approach. Dr. Copeland understands that every patient has a unique situation, and he assesses all indicators, including individual goals, before beginning a treatment plan.

For more information about candidacy requirements for post-bariatric body contouring, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Copeland, please contact our office today.
