Bariatric surgery is a surgical procedure involving the stomach or intestines to induce dramatic weight loss. Major weight loss after bariatric surgery usually leads to excess skin sagging in various areas of the body. Surgical body contouring removes the excess skin and improves the support of underlying tissue. This improves appearance and decreases the uncomfortable feeling of having excess, sagging skin. Procedures improve the appearance of the face, breasts, arms, abdomen, hips and thighs.
