Sydney Plastic Surgeon Offers a Look Inside Post-Weight Loss Plastic Surgery

Dr Steve Merten Provides an Array of Cosmetic Surgeries for patients Who Have Recently Undergone Dramatic Weight Loss, Whether From Bariatric Surgery or Traditional Diet and Exercise

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Dr Steve Merten, a plastic surgeon in Sydney, performs a variety of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures at Pure Aesthetics, including comprehensive post-weight loss plastic surgery. Whether through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, Dr Merten recognises weight loss as a significant accomplishment. He notes, however, that many people are self-conscious about their new bodies because of excess skin and tissue often left behind from the transformation. As a result of these common concerns, Dr Merten is proud to help post-weight loss patients achieve the full extent of their goals through various body contouring procedures.

While post-weight loss plastic surgery can be a highly effective solution for many people, Dr Merten explains it is not right for everyone. He notes the ideal candidate exhibits the following traits:

  • Is in good physical health without medical issues that could complicate surgery
  • Has reached a stable weight, maintaining it for at least six months
  • Follows a healthy, nutritious diet
  • Possesses realistic expectations for their results
  • Stops smoking at least six weeks prior to the operation for improved healing

More specific details of the operation are discussed during the consultation process, where Dr Merten shares the pros and cons of each treatment option. Typically, his post-bariatric and weight loss patients require multiple procedures to reach their aesthetic goals, which he notes often require more than one operation to be completed. As noted in his blog post, "Surgery for Multiple Aesthetic Concerns Following Weight Loss," Dr Merten reveals liposuction, excess skin removal, and lift procedures are typically the most useful for his post-weight loss patients. This may include a tummy tuck, breast lift, facelift, and/or arm lift and thigh reductions.

Ultimately, Dr Merten explains, "Safety is paramount." He says post-bariatric plastic surgery should only be performed on patients who have reached, or are close to, their ideal weight. Additionally, the Sydney plastic surgeon emphasises to patients that surgery affects everyone differently, and what works well for one person may not be ideal for another. To determine whether an individual is a good candidate for a single, or set of, procedures, Dr Merten stresses the importance of consulting with a highly qualified plastic surgeon. By doing so, he explains patients are more likely to achieve the most effective results possible.
