After Weight Loss Surgery In Medellin
After the loss of weight either from exercise and diet or due to bariatric surgery, there could be a large excess of skin in different parts of the body affecting its aesthetic and functional aspect. In some regions of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, arms and face the deformity is more evident.
The objective of the surgery is to remove excess skin improving the facial and body contour. It is advisable to have stable body weight for at least one year to start the surgical process.
The abdominal surgery consists of performing a tummy tuck, reaffirming the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin. In some cases, liposuction can be associated to remove some accumulations of fat. Arm surgery called brachioplasty allows reducing excess tissue, leaving a scar on the medial part of the arm. The cruroplasty or surgery of thighs called lifting allows reducing the excess of tissue, leaving a scar in the medial part of the thigh and in the groin. The face lift or ritidoplasty allows improving the position of the tissues in the face by adjusting the muscles and removing excess skin.
