Procedures

The different plastic surgery procedures after major weight loss.

 

Abdominoplasty

The surgical procedure rebuilds the muscular and cutaneous wall, reorganizes the pubis sometimes falling.

 

This procedure must be very controlled, and a strict prevention of the phlebitis and pulmonary embolisms must be carried out.

 

The operational time is approximately 2 hours, 3 days of hospitalization, 15 days of stop working, according to the painfulness of the job.

 

The port of a sheath is advised during 1 to 2 months.
The result is visible at the end of the first month and the scars are blurred at the end of 2 years.

Breast surgery

In the event of mammar ptose and hypertrophy, breast surgery reducing residual volume is possible.

 

The scars are “T reversed”. They are hidden in the furrow, around the areola and go down vertically under the areola.

 

The patients thus find their femininity and are sometimes able to occur from bra.

Arms and legs surgery

The surgery of the members is possible in the event of falling.

 

The face lifts give again a contour with the members while placing the scars in the hollow of the armpits or the groin.
If there is too much skin, it is possible to reduce the scar vertically along the members.

These procedures can in certain cases be gathered by two

Abdomen + centres, arm + thighs, or centres + thighs etc… in order to rebuild the body more quickly.
