Post Bariatric Surgery
In recent years, obesity has become one of the most common health problems. Obesity is characterised by excessive fat accumulation in the body that may pose a high health risk. It also has the risk of causing various secondary diseases such as heart disease, sleep apnoea, blood pressure, and diabetes.
Dramatic weight loss can be achieved through the application of surgical methods in people who cannot get rid of excess weight with regular diet and exercise and face secondary health problems. As a result of excessive weight loss that may occur, sagging is often encountered in patients.
Post-bariatric surgeries may come to the agenda when skin sagging of people who lose weight creates aesthetic discomfort. Post-bariatric surgeries generally cover body stretching and shaping operations.
What is Post Bariatric Surgery?
Patients who experience dramatic weight loss as a result of bariatric surgery procedures may experience sagging and deformation in certain parts of their bodies. Post-bariatric surgery procedures can be used to eliminate sagging, excess, and deformations that occur in the person's body due to weight loss after bariatric surgery. The procedures determined individually according to the needs of the patient are combined aesthetic surgeries.
Who is Post Bariatric Surgery Suitable for?
- Those who reached their target weight after bariatric surgery procedures and managed to maintain this weight for a certain period,
- Various sagging and deformations in the body due to dramatic weight loss after bariatric surgery,
- Excessive fat accumulation in certain parts of the body is minimal, but there is excess skin,
- Realistic expectations regarding the postoperative results,
- It can be applied to people who will adopt a regular nutrition and exercise program after the operation.
Which Procedures Does Post Bariatric Surgery Include?
Post-bariatric surgery includes a tummy tuck, arm lift, breast reduction, breast lift, thigh lift, buttock aesthetics, liposuction, and fat injection procedures according to the need. These combined surgeries consisting of different procedures are planned and applied according to the needs of the person. The procedures performed under general anesthesia can be performed together or in sequence. Thanks to the procedures planned to shape the patient's body into the desired shape, sagging, excess, and deformations in the body of the patient who has experienced dramatic weight loss after bariatric surgery can be eliminated.
What are the Benefits of Post Bariatric Surgery?
Since post-bariatric surgeries have the characteristics of combined aesthetic surgery, they provide the advantage of being planned according to the personal needs of each patient. In this context, it may be possible to intervene in the areas needed according to the needs of the patient, or even to perform a single surgery on more than one area to achieve a better appearance.
After bariatric surgery procedures, the poor appearance caused by excessive weight loss is improved by eliminating sagging and loosening in various parts of the body due to dramatic weight loss. The patient's body contours are clarified, a more aesthetic appearance is achieved and a significant increase in self-confidence is achieved. Since the operation in more than one region can be performed with a single operation, it is possible to benefit from the opportunity to perform simultaneous operations only once under anaesthesia and to experience the healing process simultaneously.
