Skin Reduction Surgery (Post Bariatric Surgery) in Orange County is an essential and final component in the journey embarked upon by patients having post bariatric surgery. As Newport Beach post bariatric surgery patients lose their unwanted weight, they will universally observe decrease in total body fat but only minimal resolution of their unwanted, redundant skin. Skin redundancy can be minimal, moderate, or severe as observed by development of multiple skin rolls and/or rashes. Skin redundancy can be observed over the face and neck, arms, breasts, armpits, upper back (under the bra region),abdomen, lower back (above the buttocks), pubic region, lateral thighs, and medial thighs. Above skin redundancies result in sagging of the breasts, buttocks, thighs, and genitalia. Over a one to two year period, weight loss over 100 pounds is routine for post bariatric patients who attend regular counseling and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately accumulation of redundant skin eventually becomes an obstacle to physical activity and a burden psychologically.
