This surgical procedure concerns patients who have a stabilized body weight at least for a year either through surgical interventions such as gastric bypass, sleeve, ring or through a diet program.
Weight loss of such an extent, results to extreme sagging of the skin and tissue droopiness and changes the image of the face, neck and lower body area.
All patients after massive weight loss are candidates for one or more operations to the areas of the face (Face Lift- Neck Lift) and body (breast lift, Arm lift, abdominoplasty, thigh lift, glutoplasty, Lower Body Lift, Body Lift, Belt Lipectomy).
These patients usually undergo combined surgical operations after a certain period of time, in order to achieve the best result to the whole body.
Am I a candidate for a body contouring after massive weight loss?

Extended face-neck looseness
Extended arm looseness
Extended abdomen – body – pubic area looseness
Extended thighs and buttocks looseness
