Post bariatric plastic surgery is best addressed by your local board certified plastic surgeon. Ask your pcp for a referral or your bariatric surgeon or look online.

A board certified plastic surgeon is the most qualified for reshaping the body after massive weight loss. Most will recommend waiting a year after bariatric surgery before plastic surgery. This gives you body time to adapt physically and metabolically. The american society of bariatric plastic surgeons has been established by plastic surgeons who do body contouring surgery: https://www.Asbps.Org/.

The most important thing to realize if you're considering plastic surgery after weight loss surgery is to wait until you reach your goal weight. If you have plastic surgery and then lose more weight, you'd need plastic surgery again, and that just doesn't make sense.
