Body Contouring San Antonio
Total body contouring for San Antonio-area patients can be attained with Dr. Constance Barone. Plastic surgery after weight loss at our state-of-the-art San Antonio facility is designed to address loose skin and folds often left over from the massive amounts of weight lost after bariatric surgery or extreme dieting.
Plastic Surgery after Weight Loss
The advent of bariatric surgery and extreme diet and exercise programs to address morbid obesity has led many people to lead healthier lives with slimmer bodies. However, once the desired amount of weight has been lost, loose, drooping skin often remains in many areas of the body. This can lead to problems such as lack of self-confidence, limited clothing choices, skin infections, and even depression. Plastic surgery after weight loss, available from our San Antonio physician, is a way to eliminate excess, overhanging skin and recontour the body, giving you a tight, fit-looking physique from top to bottom. Through a combination of procedures, Dr. Constance Barone can help you complete your total body transformation to achieve the look of your dreams.

Body Contouring Procedure
Body contouring after weight loss typically involves a number of procedures to address a variety of areas. At your initial consultation with Dr. Constance Barone, you will be asked to provide a detailed medical history. You and Dr. Barone will also discuss your aesthetic goals openly and honestly, and the risks and benefits of all procedures that you are considering will be explained in detail. Dr. Barone will be very frank in describing all aspects of the procedures, from pre-operative preparation to post-operative recovery.
Since plastic surgery after weight loss will generally involve multiple procedures, patients should expect a multi-stage process that will take place over a period of months, depending on the types of procedures that are chosen and the extent of those procedures. The initial consultation is one of the most important steps in the surgical process. It is important for patients to have realistic expectations for results, and to convey their aesthetic goals, in detail, to Dr. Barone. Then, you will both decide what surgical options would be best to meet those goals.
Body Contouring Recovery
Since every plastic surgery after weight loss program is custom-tailored to each patient, recovery will depend on the procedures that are performed and the extent of those procedures. Patients who choose to combine upper and lower body contouring can expect an extended recovery time, possibly up to two months. More invasive procedures will leave visible scars; however, Dr. Barone will work to make any residual scarring as minimal as possible and easy to hide under clothing. Plus, most scars will fade over time.
