Post-bariatric surgery

Obesity is a disease of civilization in the 21st century. It is the result of an unhealthy lifestyle and is associated with numerous comorbidities and a shortened life expectancy. With the spread of obesity, bariatric surgery developed, i.e. operations on the gastrointestinal tract, leading to a reduction in the absorption area, and thus - weight loss. Then patients begin to feel better, become physically active, some comorbidities disappear, but another problem appears - excess of loose skin. This led to the creation of a separate branch of plastic surgery - post-bariatric body contouring surgery, which has been developing very dynamically in recent years.  


These operations most often concern:

- the abdomen (abdominoplasty)

- breasts (breast lift)

- arms (armplasty)

- thighs (thighplasty - inner parts)

- Lower Body Lift (mainly outer parts of the thighs)

- neck, face (necklift, facelift)


These operations require appropriate qualifications and - similarly to bariatric operations - appropriate preparation in cooperation with a dietitian and physiotherapist
