Patient Stories: Colleen

Weight loss either through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise is truly a life-changing event. After undergoing a Gastric Sleeve, Colleen lost 70-80 lbs. While most of the changes accompanying weight loss are positive, loose skin is a concern for many patients. Hanging skin can affect both comfort and self-confidence and can be a daily reminder of past obesity. The best time to consider plastic surgery is when you are as close to your goal weight as possible and are weight stable. This is usually 12-18 months after the gastric bypass surgery or gastric banding.

This lovely patient was happy to share her story after choosing to undergo a Lipoabdominoplasty with Dr. Derby. To meet with Dr. Derby, request a consultation at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center or call (941) 366-8897.
