Body contouring after massive weight loss refers to a series of surgical procedures to remove excessive skin that is a result of massive and rapid weight loss from bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery is a term for a variety of restrictive gastric surgeries to limit the amount of caloric intake/absorption; these include: gastric bypass, gastric banding, or duodenal switch. Patients who undergo these surgeries can lose significant amounts of weight, up to 100 lbs or more. The excessive skin is located in several characteristic areas, and surgeries like circumferential abdominoplasty, lower body lift, brachioplasty (arm lift), mastopexy (breast lift), thigh/buttock lifts, and face/neck lifts are commonly performed. Dr. Ha can help you determine which of these procedures are indicated for you during a consultation.
