What are the surgical interventions after weight loss?

In patients who have undergone gastric surgery due to morbid obesity or in patients who have deliberately lost weight, an unpleasant appearance may occur due to sagginess of the face, neck, arms, breasts, abdomen, thighs and buttocks and excessive skin. Therefore, every region has to be corrected with surgical interventions that are specific to that region.

Who are eligible for aesthetic surgery after weight loss?

Patients reaching their target weights have to keep their weights constant at least for 6 months and they should not have iron deficiency anemia and protein insufficiency.


Why are wound healing problems encountered more frequently in patients undergoing obesity surgery?

Since a part of the stomach is removed during obesity surgery, it leads to iron deficiency anemia and reduces the hemoglobin values. In this case, oxygen uptake capacity of the tissue is reduced. Hemoglobin values have to be ≥10 and also protein and albumin levels have to be normal for optimal wound healing. In these patient groups that we call post-bariatric patients, the experience of the hospital and the physician will minimize these problems.

Are there materials that are alternative to cartilage?

Synthetic cartilage products may conveniently be used as an alternative. Small deformities and do not require surgery may be eliminated with filling agents.
