Candidates for Body Contouring Surgery

The best candidates for post bariatric body contouring are men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight and are unhappy with the appearance of excess fat and skin. It is important that patients are at a stable weight for at least one year prior to undergoing surgery, as weight fluctuations can have a negative impact on the final outcome. Patients should also be in good health and should not smoke, as smoking increases the risk of complications. Finally, it is important that patients have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of surgery and are committed to healthy lifestyle habits that will preserve the results of their treatment for years to come.

Post bariatric body contouring refers to a number of procedures performed simultaneously, so no two procedures are exactly alike. Patients undergoing post-bariatric body contouring may receive the following treatments:
