Post-bariatric surgery, body contouring performed by Dr. Martin Jugenburg, chief plastic surgeon of the Plastica Clinic, can eliminate the discomfort caused by excess skin, dramatically improve your appearance, and completely revitalize your physique. Dr. Jugenburg and his professional cosmetic surgery team offer patients one of the most experienced body sculpting teams in Toronto, the most advanced post-bariatric techniques, technology and facilities, to create a beautiful new you.
Since weight loss can impact various parts of one’s body, Dr. Jugenburg’s post-bariatric patients often request more than one cosmetic surgery procedure. The types of procedures required, and the extent of these procedures, will vary for each patient. Those patients who wish to eliminate the stretched and sagging skin caused by weight loss, and desire a firmer, more youthful appearance may be good candidates for post-bariatric surgeries.
A key consideration for any post-bariatric patient is the timing. Typically, any cosmetic surgery procedures will be considered only after one’s weight has been stable for over three months and the patient does not desire more weight loss. This is usually 18 months or more after bariatric surgery, depending on an individual’s preoperative weight. This may seem like a long time to wait for surgery, but for Dr. Jugenburg and his staff, patient safety is priority one.
A variety of surgical procedures are often necessary and performed at different times. Your surgical procedures will be tailored to meet your specific needs, and performed according to which areas cause the greatest concern or discomfort. Several cosmetic and body contouring procedures can benefit post-bariatric patients. These include but are not limited to:
Whatever procedures you decide to have, you can rest assured that Dr. Jugenburg and the professional Plastica team offer you the most advanced and minimally invasive techniques available.
As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, there will be a period of recovery following post-bariatric surgery. You may not return to peak physical form for months after the surgery, however most patients are pleasantly surprised by the positive results of their surgery. It is important to recognize that your recovery will be a gradual process. Since post-bariatric surgery is so unique for each patient, depending on the type(s) of surgery performed, it is difficult to identify a definitive timeframe for recovery. In some cases, Dr. Jugenburg will not begin a second surgical procedure until you have fully recovered from the initial surgery.
Dr. Jugenburg will discuss all postoperative guidelines with you prior to any surgery. In general, you can anticipate that you may experience some bruising, swelling and/or discomfort following surgery depending on which surgeries you choose as part of your post-bariatric procedures. But the final results will not disappoint you! Dr. Jugenburg and his professional cosmetic surgery team offer only the most advanced surgical procedures to his patients. Get ready for a more sculpted, youthful and revitalized body!
Depending on the specific post-bariatric surgeries you select, you can have a tightened, lifted and enhanced contour to your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, breasts, arms, and any other areas treated.

There are risks associated with any surgical procedure.

The results are usually dramatic and provide a significant functional and aesthetic benefit to the patient.
