Burnett, MD and also serves as a final step in a weight loss journey.

How Do You Perform After Weight Loss Surgery?

After weight loss surgery is almost always considered an invasive treatment. It is performed under general anesthesia and takes between 3 – 7 hours, depending upon the specific techniques being performed. In most cases, an overnight stay is necessary. The procedure often begins with a form of liposuction, followed by the surgical removal of skin. During this procedure, every effort is made by Dr. Burnett to make the incisions as inconspicuous as possible, but you should expect some visible scars. It typically takes about 2 – 4 weeks until you can resume low-impact activities, but depending on the complexity of the surgery, it may take longer. Dr. Burnett finds that most of his patients are fully recovered around 4 – 6 months later.
