Patient Testimonial

“I had gastric bypass surgery about 2 years ago resulting in a lot of excess skin. My arms and my abdomen really bothered me. Dr. Barker is such a good and thorough surgeon, he did absolutely everything possible to get the results to his satisfaction which was to my benefit. The recovery has been almost a breeze. I would recommend Dr. Barker and Peak Plastic Surgery Center to anybody interested in surgery following weight loss.”

What To Expect From After Weight Loss Surgery

If weight loss has caused stretched and sagging skin, surgery at Peak Plastic Surgery Center can remove the extra skin and tighten the underlying tissues for a firmer and healthier appearance. Our procedure for body contouring after weight loss in Denver requires general anesthesia. It may also involve a combination of high-definition VASER liposuction and skin/tissue excision. Compared to other cosmetic surgeries, after weight loss surgery typically requires larger incisions. However, Dr. Barker makes every attempt to minimize the appearance of your incisions.

Given that oftentimes large amounts of skin and tissue need to be addressed during surgery, patients will be asked to wear compression garments to reduce swelling. Drainage tubes may also be used to help if excessive drainage is expected. Our team at Peak Plastic Surgery Center will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you heal. On average, it takes roughly 6 weeks until you can resume full activities, but depending on the complexity of the surgery, it may take longer. Dr. Barker will ensure you are well educated on the timing of restrictions and when you can expect to increase your activity in a safe manner. 

What is VASER 360 Body Contouring?

High-definition VASER 360 liposuction provides in-depth sculpting for the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and many other areas of the physique. It can be combined with most cosmetic surgeries to enhance and  improve results. The process involves ultrasonic energy waves that liquify the fat cells prior to their removal through a liposuction cannula (slender tube) while keeping the surrounding framework in place.  This leads to a smoother and more powerful result as compared to standard liposuction performed alone.
