Surgery in massive weight loss

This is indicated in cases with large amounts of excess skin after massive weight loss, for example patients who have undergone bariatric surgery or have lost weight using other methods.

In these cases, there’s sagging skin, stretch marks and excess body fat. There’s often excess skin in several areas of the body so more than one surgery is usually required for a complete treatment.

It is advisable to start the reconstruction process with plastic surgery when the patient isn’t losing weight and has maintained the same weight for at least 6 months.
