Post weight loss plastic surgery
Currently both weight loss and bariatric surgery have brought greater confidence and improved self-esteem to obese patients. However, new concerns have arisen about the excess skin left after weight loss. This can be handled in various ways: only liposuction with skin retraction, or local resection, use of prosthetics, and others. It can be on the:
Skin, with leftover fat, remains, and can be corrected with plastic surgery, in accordance with the wishes of the woman or man.
Sagging breasts can be corrected with the raising of the breasts (pexia), with reduced scars, with or without the use of prostheses.
The thighs fall due to the force of gravity. This can be corrected with horizontal (hidden) or vertical resections on the inner thigh.
The arms can be adjusted as needed, with liposuction and removal of excess skin, leaving a scar hidden in the armpit or inside.
The proposed surgery for improvement of physical beauty after weight loss may require additional surgery to improve all areas, usually associated with liposuction.
The preoperative preparation should be performed with a medical specialist. Complementary examinations and laboratory tests are to be given as needed. State of the art technical and scientific principles should be followed, in order to achieve the most beautiful result possible.
Swelling after surgery depends on the extent of the surgery and the technique used. There may be a need for physiotherapy, with lymphatic drainage. This varies in accordance to how each patient responds to the surgery. Nowadays, plastic surgery has evolved. New techniques are employed, with better results and a quicker return to the patient’s normal activities.
