Post-weight loss or post-bariatric surgery
Although they allow the removal of fat, plastic surgery techniques are not designed for weight loss. In case of obesity, plastic surgery is discouraged due to the risk of complications and poor results. It is best to establish a healthy eating plan with the help of your general practitioner. In some cases of morbid obesity where slimming regimes do not work, bariatric surgery may be recommended and performed by a visceral surgeon. In all cases, after a significant weight loss cosmetic body surgery is the ultimate step to treat the excess skin generated by slimming (stomach apron, arms, thighs, breasts, back, buttocks, face) and to remove stubborn pockets of fat. This is referred to as post-bariatric surgery.
