After Weight Loss Surgery - San Antonio, Texas
Since 1998, Dr. Sheryl Pilcher has been helping patients reshape their figures and restore their confidence after weight loss surgery. Her patients in San Antonio, Texas benefit from advanced body contouring techniques that remove excess skin to give a more balanced and attractive shape. Dr. Pilcher has a unique understanding of the needs of weight loss patients because her husband, Dr. John Pilcher, is a well-respected bariatric surgeon.
Dramatic weight loss as a result of gastric bypass surgery, Lap-Band surgery, or conventional diet and exercise techniques is a tremendous achievement that can greatly improve your health. Most massive weight loss patients enjoy an increased quality of life, finding that they are able to participate in a larger range of physical activities. Unfortunately, many patients also find that the resultant excess, sagging skin detracts from their appearance and their overall sense of well-being. Dr. Pilcher’s San Antonio, Texas area patients, however, are offered various body contouring options that focus on removing this excess skin and restoring the body’s shape.
Body contouring may be accomplished in many areas of the body, including the face, breast, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, and arms. Depending on your personal needs, body contouring treatments may require several stages to achieve your optimum outcome. Dr. Pilcher can help Austin, San Antonio, and South Texas area residents determine which body contouring options are best for them.
Most after weight loss surgery candidates at our San Antonio practice need to be at least one year out from their weight loss surgery, have a stable weight, and be at or approaching a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less. Financial considerations are also important, as insurance coverage of body contouring procedures is uncommon.
