Scroll down for more details and information

More and more people who are confronting with morbid obesity call on bariatric surgery or gastric by-pass to be helped to lose weight.

After this intervention, the patients significantly lose weight, but at cutaneous level modifications appear, skin excess hanging in different body regions. Thus, patients call on different reconstructive plastic techniques to improve aspect.

Reshaping after weight loss needs a combination of procedures. The skin excess after massive weight loss is existent in many areas of the body and this is why it is necessary to call for multiple interventions on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, breasts, arms and even the back levels. A major problem which appears post-operatory is the existing of visible scars. Still, this thing can be easily accepted by the patient, putting it in balance with the benefits and the spectacular results of reshaping. Most often patients call for abdominoplasty, arm lifting, thigh lifting, mastopexy or in men’s case, the solving of gynecomastia. These surgical interventions can be made more in the same time or one by one.
