Activities to Experience After Your Gastric Bypass Reconstruction

Posted September 07, 2017 in Gastric Bypass Reconstruction

Once you’ve lost a significant amount of weight with gastric bypass surgery, or by your own efforts, you are likely left with sagging skin that can still add to your girth. Even if you’ve made incredible progress with weight loss, you still may not be able to participate in some of the most exciting aspects of life. Gastric bypass reconstruction (skin removal surgery) opens the doors to reduced sagging skin, smaller clothing size, lower weight, and more opportunities for memorable experiences. Here are a few fun things you can experience in San Diego, and similar areas, after your gastric bypass reconstruction.

Be Adventurous

Without excess weight that sagging skin can cause, you will not have to worry about exceeding the weight limit for activities like hang gliding, rock wall climbing, zip lining, and race car driving. Your body will also take up less space, making it easier to move and get in and out of tight spaces. Travel will also become easier as you no longer have to purchase two seats on a flight or sit uncomfortably close to a stranger.

Be Active

Less sagging skin will give you the freedom to be more active. Jumping, cycling, and running will become significantly easier as your skin no longer chafes, and any hanging skin no longer weighs disproportionately on your body. Mini trampolines will easily bear your weight, and you no longer have a reason to worry about potential embarrassment. Your newly slender and lighter body will allow you to easily build up the strength to do more physically demanding activities like wakeboarding, surfing, and skiing.

Go Shopping

Skin removal surgery patients are often most excited about the new wardrobe they will be able to experience after surgery, especially when liposuction is involved with the procedure. With more defined, smooth contours, clothing will fit better, tight clothes will look better, and you will be able to show more skin in swimwear with complete confidence in your appearance.

Gastric bypass reconstruction may be the final step in your physical transformation after weight loss. This procedure can open the doors to an entirely enjoyable life with fewer physical limitations due to the redundant skin.
