  • About Me
      A Brief Description of Post-Bariatric Surgery – Full Body Lift Drs. Batra understands that losing a considerable amount of weight through bariatric surgery is a major personal accomplishment. That’s why they’re dedicated to helping their post-bariatric surgery patients to enhance further their body contours through a variety of procedures. Regarded as leading body lift surgeons, they often combine this procedure with an arm lift and thigh lift to deliver remarkable aesthetic results. Please review the below pictures to learn more about plastic surgery after weight loss.   GASTRIC BYPASS RECONSTRUCTION After losing a considerable amount of weight (major or massive weight loss, also called `MWL`) as a result of gastric bypass or Lap-Band surgery, many patients are left with a tremendous amount of excess skin. The redundant skin on the stomach, arms and legs, might not shrink back to the person’s new body shape. The excess tissue is sometimes referred to as the “pannicule” and the removal is called a “panniculectomy.” Many San Diego and Del Mar post-bariatric surgery patients also notice that their muscles have become loose after dramatic weight loss. The lack of elasticity of the muscles and skin often causes excessive amounts of tissue to “hang” in various areas, including the face, neck, breasts, upper and lower abdomen, flanks, armpit (axilla), back, buttocks, arms, forearms, thighs, legs, and calves. The excess skin can also cause hygienic issues, skin irritation, skin breakdown, pain, and infection. GBRx, Dr. Batra’s post-bariatric surgery procedure, can solve these problems and significantly enhance patients’ self-confidence.

    Dr Batra is very knowledgeable and I am very happy with the results of the procedure. Even though people remark about how my looks have changed, there are no residual tell tale signs of a procedure having taken place.
