Post Bariatric Surgery (Weight loss Surgery)
The results of extensive weight loss, either by dieting, exercise or bariatric weight loss surgery (gastric banding or bypass), can be very dramatic but can leave excess/flabby skin which can be unsightly.
In the majority of such cases, diet and exercise are unlikely to achieve the smooth contours that the patient would want. Therefore plastic surgery maybe the only option to lift and tighten the loose skin and make the most of your body transformation.
Dr Bhatty’s vast experience in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery has put him in a unique position of understanding the needs of such patients, and he provides a tailor-made solution to the patients’ needs.
With Dr Bhatty’s experience of the physical and psychological dilemma's a patient faces, alongside his careful attention to the patients’ needs, he is able to provide an effective solution and advise the patient to the correct sequence of procedures to achieve the desired goals.

Male Chest Reduction
Men can also have breast reduction surgery if they have enlarged breasts, a condition known as gynaecomastia. Large breasts in men are often believed to be a result of obesity, but this is not the only cause. Men, like women, can have an abnormal growth of glandular breast tissue, usually because of a hormone imbalance. For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, breast reduction surgery may be considered to flatten the breast area.
Excess skin on the bottom can be really unappealing and is resistant to treatment with exercise or creams. The excess skin can be carefully removed and any stubborn areas of fat liposculptured away to produce a lean, smooth and shapely silhouette.

"Mrs AC is one of our weight loss patients. She lost 8 stone and felt much healthier, however, she was unhappy with the loose and flabby skin which was unattractive and was causing her to become depressed after all the effort she had put in! First she had a tummy tuck to deal with the excess skin around her tummy area, from losing so much weight. She was delighted with the results, so then opted for a breast uplift as prior weight loss had left her with saggy, empty-looking breasts. Cosmetic surgery therefore, completed her transformation from obesity to achieve a stunning shape". *
