After Weight Loss Surgery FAQ

Best Candidates?

You should be at a healthy, stable weight for at least one year prior to your after weight loss surgery to get your best results. Any additional weight loss after the surgery may cause loose, sagging skin. Any weight gan after the surgery will cause the skin to stretch and may leave stretch marks.


All surgical incisions will leave scars, however Dr. Bidros tries to make incisions as small as possible and in less visible areas. Incisions may also be made in the natural creases of the body to help them blend in with the skin. With proper scar care management, most scars will flatten and fade. Most patients consider the scars worth it for their improved appearance.

Staging Surgeries?

If needed, Dr. Bidros may stage the surgeries into two or more procedures. This avoids overwhelming the body’s healing process and causing an excessive recovery period. Many times, after weight loss surgery is split into an upper and lower body lift, but Dr. Bidros will determine the best way to stage and schedule your surgeries based on your health and other factors.
