Located in Green and Beachwood, Ohio, Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Steven S. Carp, M.D., F.A.C.S, performs post-bariatric surgery for patients in and around Akron, Cleveland and Canton.
Bariatric surgeries are carried out to speed up weight loss by restricting how much food the stomach can hold and process. Due to just how quickly patients lose weight, many are forced to deal with excess skin and difficult fat deposits in the months following their surgery. This is why Dr. Carp offers patients post-bariatric surgery to help remove the excess soft tissue and complete their health and weight loss transformation.
There is almost nothing a patient can do on their own to lessen excess and sagging skin after rapidly losing weight. While some become disheartened with the extra soft tissue, post-bariatric surgery will actually allow them to contour their body after going through the hard work of losing weight. For many patients, this will be the final step in creating their ideal weight, size, and shape.
Bariatric surgery affects every patient differently, and this means that there will be different problematic areas for each individual. Dr. Carp begins this process by meeting with all patients, answering their questions, helping them decide on how their body will be contoured, and giving them an idea of what they can expect after surgery. In most instances, this will be an inpatient procedure in which multiple incisions are made around the thighs, buttocks, and torso to remove excess skin and fat deposits.
