Patients who lost massive amounts of weight and who are in overall good health are considered to be great fits to undergo this type of surgery. Dr. Sameer Jejurikar recommends that this surgical procedure is performed in stages and under general anesthesia as it could take several hours to accomplish the task. When he operates, he is likely to extract excess skin and portions of fat in order to tighten the supportive tissues. Generally speaking, he makes use of the soft tissues from the lower back to enhance the buttock area which would give the patients a curvaceous look.
One thing you need to be prepared when you undergo this surgery is the post-recovery phase. Unlike other treatments, this procedure takes a long time to recover and swelling is likely to get better in a matter of few weeks. Dr. J would prescribe you with all the aftercare precautions so that recovery is faster and in a less painful way. If you have any additional questions or concerns, Dr. J is available at his Dallas office and you could certainly schedule an appointment with him to begin your journey towards a completely rejuvenating experience.
