As more and more women begin to lose a significant amount of weight with the help of a bariatric procedure, plastic surgeons like Dr. Camille Cash have begun to notice an increase in the demand for Houston breast augmentation to restore breast shape and structure.
Houston, Texas (March 2009) – With an increasing number of extreme weight-loss surgical procedures, physicians like Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Camille Cash have noticed an increase in the number of women seeking cosmetic enhancement procedures like breast augmentation to achieve the appearance they desire after weight loss surgery.
“I’m pleasantly surprised by the number of women who have chosen to lose weight and live healthier through bariatric surgery,” says Dr. Cash, a board-certified plastic surgeon. “These women have worked so hard and want to be able to enjoy their results. For women who choose bariatric surgery, volume loss in the breasts can be a disappointing aftereffect, but Houston breast augmentation and breast lift procedures can help them feel more beautiful and feminine.”
After bariatric surgery, many women seek out breast augmentation to replace lost breast volume. In addition, excess sagging skin can make a woman look older than she really is and invite feelings of self-consciousness, which is why in most cases augmentation is combined with a breast lift. Breast lifts elevate and retighten the breast skin for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Cash understands the appearance goals of post-bariatric patients and applies her knowledge of aesthetic procedures to create a satisfying look that completes their weight loss journey.
“The main reason more post-bariatric patients are opting for breast enhancement cosmetic surgery in Houston is to restore breast fullness,” adds Dr. Cash. “Flat, sagging breasts are simply not what a woman has in mind when she envisions her post-bariatric body. I love that I am able to help these women and give them a boost of confidence by enhancing their breast size and shape.”
As a person loses a significant amount of weight, their skin is not able to retighten and reshape to their new body size. The result for post-bariatric patients is that most are left with large patches of sagging skin, which can be particularly bothersome in the breasts, arms, thighs, and abdomen. In addition to breast lift and breast augmentation, Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Cash can perform a variety of other procedures to tailor the skin and remove residual fat. These procedures include abdominoplasty, liposuction, body lift, and arm lift.
“As a plastic surgeon who has helped many post-bariatric patients, I take the time to consider all of a patient’s ‘trouble spots’ and try to find a way to achieve the most satisfying makeover possible,” explains Dr. Cash. “For many women, a key component of plastic surgery after weight loss is a breast enhancement procedure, but addressing sagging skin through a tummy tuck or body lift also can achieve those finishing touches that flatter their thinner, more healthy body.”
