Obesity and significant weight loss

Obesity and significant weight loss surgery

When a patient is submitted to a surgical procedure for weight loss (bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, gastric balloon, vertical gastroplasty) or has made changes in the dietary habits, which have produced a massive weight loss, important changes on the body will be seen. In the majority of cases, these changes bring with them an important flaccidity of the skin that can be corrected through surgery.

Face and neck

The same procedures as for a face lift are used. They are not too notorious, and allow us to restore a youthful expression, resecting the fat and the excessive skin.
This procedure usually requires a medical leave and recovery time of 2 weeks.

Breasts

In this area, to correct the consequences of weight loss and sagginess, the excessive skin is removed, and in many cases, implants are inserted to give volume and firmness to the breasts.
This procedure requires a medical leave and recovery time of 10 days.

Thorax, arms, back, and waist

From these regions the remaining excess of fat will be removed, and in those cases where needed, skin will be readjusted. The latter procedure might leave a scar.

Abdomen, waist (circumferential abdominoplasty) and genitals
