Houston Body Lift Surgery Post Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery has literally saved the lives of patients who were unable to lose their excess weight by traditional means like diet and exercise. While the results of this surgery can aid in losing 100 or more pounds and provide the patient with a renewed sense of self and energy, it usually leaves the patient with a large amount of unwanted, excess skin under the arms, in the abdomen, and on the legs. If this excess, loose skin is significant enough it can affect the patient’s joy of accomplishment from weight loss. That is why most of the reputable bariatric surgery centers also provide their patients with information on Houston plastic surgeons that can perform body lift surgery and other plastic surgery procedures to minimize the appearance of the excess skin. Patients seeking body lift surgery following gastric bypass should postpone body lift surgery until their weight reaches a stable point. Most patients in this category are troubled most by excess, loose skin under the arms in the triceps region, as this may prevent them from wearing short sleeve or sleeveless apparel. While plastic surgeons can effectively remove excess skin under the arms, patients need to be aware that they are essentially trading the excess skin for scars that run the length of the arms. This is not to say that the scars will not heal and become less noticeable over time, but there will always be some degree of scarring, and the plastic surgeon makes every effort to hide the scars between the underside of the arms and the point where the arms rest against the trunk of the body so that they are less noticeable. The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston routinely assists patients following weight loss, and Dr. Michael Eisemann has over 30 years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
