Why do you need body contouring?

I do underline here that obesity surgery is not my business. Whereas we, plastic surgeons are interested in body contouring consequence of weight loss after bariatric surgery.

Obesity, in other words overweight, is to gain weight more than the normal standard. It also leads to serious health risks such as diabetes, heart failure and other systemic disorders.

Obesity is a chronic disease, however it is treatable. There are several methods to get rid of abundant fat. Medical devices for weight loss and weight management: What to know will guide you. If you are not able to lose weight despite a dieting program, surgical methods can help you.

Bariatric surgery in other words surgical obesity treatment, provides various surgical methods. Gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric band, duodenal switch are the most common methods for weight loss. You may get rid of the problems arising from abundant fat after successful obesity surgery. Slimming improves your general health conditions and also lessens the vital risks associated with obesity.

However, on the other hand, further problems arising from skin loosening emerges as a consequence of weight loss. Loose skin of the body parts impacts the person’s life quality as well as your appearance.

Why do you need body lift after bariatric surgery?

The skin that covers our entire body contains collagen and elastin fibers. Collagen and elastin fibers ensure skin elasticity.

During the weight gain period, skin expands concomitant to increase in the fat tissue. Skin expansion leads to rupture of collagen and elastin fibers due to stretching. Damaged fibers lose their retraction ability, and consequently skin loses its elasticity. Therefore skin cannot shrink, and fails to respond to fat reduction following the slimming. As a result, loose skin hangs from the body.

The problems you may suffer after bariatric surgery:

  • Contact between the folded skin surfaces leads to sores and rashes.
  • Excess skin restricts your physical activity, which also leads to physical discomfort.
  • Loose skin leads to poor body image that may cause you to lose your self-esteem.

Breasts are one of the most affected part after weight loss. In such cases breast lift procedure alone or combined with breast implant surgery is necessary.
