POST-BARIATRIC BODY LIFT
“Post-bariatric body contouring is an art that combines the power of surgical planning with a sense of aesthetic creation. Every patient is different and has a different shape. Customizing the plan for each patient creates the best possible results for body lift and body contouring.”
— Dr. Jay Calvert
Dr. Calvert trained with some of the pioneers of Bariatric Surgery operations during his residency at the University of Pittsburgh.
Dr. Calvert learned about the laparoscopic weight loss operations during his general surgery training and then went on to perform many body lifts and other operations for patients who had excess skin due to massive weight loss. He continues to work closely with Dr. Dennis Hurwitz of the Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery and together, they have established the Hurwitz Center for Body Contouring at the Roxbury Clinic and Surgery Center.
Dr. Calvert believes that the plastic surgeon should be involved in creating the post-operative treatment plan for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. This complex group of patients needs to be handled quite differently than the general population. Problems associated with skin excess arise fairly routinely and he has the surgical answers for these problems. Post-bariatric body contouring is an art that combines the power of surgical planning with a sense of aesthetic creation. Every patient is different and has a different shape. Customizing the plan for each patient allows Dr. Calvert to create the best possible results for his body lift and body contouring patients.
A frequent speaker at bariatric support groups, Dr. Calvert has been serving the weight loss population since his time in residency. He often works with his team of plastic surgeons to help reduce operating times thus minimizing the risks of these difficult operations. Dr. Dennis Hurwitz and Dr. Calvert will for special cases operate together and they see the team approach is crucial to achieving the best results for their patients.
The Total Body Lift
The Total Body Lift is a procedure where all of the major body contouring operations are performed in a single stage. This operation requires a great deal of planning and preparation as the time for recovery is somewhat extended. This operation is a way that busy people can have their bodies converted from the post-bartiatric or post-weight loss state into a smaller, skin reduced state in one operation. It is not for everyone, but for the right patients, it is the right operation. It typically requires a hospital stay of three to five days and about 6 weeks prior to returning to work.
