Post-Bariatric Body Contouring

Despite the care taken by diet or bariatric surgery, it is inevitable that excess skin sagging will occur in many parts of the body. The amount of this excess may vary among people. In order to correct these skin sagging, plastic surgery operations are performed on these areas.

Bariatric Surgery and Aesthetic Surgery After Weight Loss

Bariatric Surgery (obesity surgery) is a group of surgical procedures that provides a person to lose weight quickly.
Bariatric Surgery operations are extremely serious operations and are performed by general surgeons. After these surgeries, the patients quickly lose weight and recover their health. However, skin excess occurs in weight-lost patients. Aesthetic surgeries are performed to relieve the bad appearance due to this sagginess. In order to be able to perform these surgeries, a certain period must pass after obesity surgery, and the patients' metabolic status has stabilized and their weight loss has to be completed. This period is usually at least 1 year.
After a bariatric surgery, a series of surgeries can be performed to relieve the sagginess of the patients who lose weight and correct the parts of the body that are deformed. When these surgeries are planned, the needs, health status and age of the person are counted. Usually, surgery is required in more than one region, and these surgeries can be combined. After bariatric surgery, the person has attained a thin body by weight loss, but in many patients the skin, which has widened when overweight, cannot adapt to the slim new body and skin sagging occurs. This is like being medium (M) size and wearing XXL clothes, of course the clothes will not look good. At this point, post-obesity aesthetic surgery enters the circuit. Body shaping and contouring are done by a series of operation and excess skin is removed. Surgical scars are placed in areas that are not visible as far as possible.
