Turkey Medicals, “Overweight or obesity brings with it a large number of health problems besides aesthetically undesirable appearance. Individuals who have recovered from their weight under the supervision of a doctor and dietitian, or patients who have undergone bariatric surgery, sagging may occur in various parts of the body.”

These sagging occur in abdomen, breasts, waist, hips, back, arms and legs and face area. Even if a person reaches his ideal weight, sagging and deformities occurring in these areas prevent patients from having the desired body shape.

Post-bariatric surgery is a body shaping process that comes into play at this point. With post-bariatric surgery, the sagging that occurs after weight loss is eliminated and the patient’s body shape is made desirable.

Post-bariatric surgery is mostly a set of procedures that require multiple operations. According to the patient’s complaints, surgical intervention is performed in the abdomen, waist, breast, arms and legs, back and waist area and sagging skin is recovered. How many sessions and how these operations will take place is decided by plastic surgeons according to the patient’s condition. Within the scope of the planning, the order in which the operations will be performed, and if multiple surgeries are involved, the recovery and rest periods between these surgeries are calculated. Post-bariatric surgery operations take place under general anesthesia.

Stages of post-bariatric surgery

Operations in which the sagging of the abdomen, waist and hips are removed are mostly performed as a whole. A 360-degree incision is usually opened around the patient’s waist. In the case where volume loss is also present in the hip area, the patient’s own adipose tissue can be applied to this area to give fullness.

Breast lift surgery can be performed in patients because volume loss also occurs most of the time in sagging breasts after weight loss. If necessary, a silicone prosthesis is also included in the surgery to provide the desired volume and image.

Don’t let your dreams be interrupted

Achieving the ideal weight is very important both for physical health and for achieving the desired image. Patients who achieve the ideal weight at the end of a difficult process may also need post-bariatric surgical procedures to achieve their ideal images. You can consult plastic surgeons on the subject and get detailed information about the operations.
