Between January 2000 and January 2005, 122 patients underwent some kind of plastic surgery following massive weight loss. In more than 90% of thecases, patients underwent abdominoplasty, associated with liposuction, breast surgery, thighs or arms dermolipectomy or facelift. Multiple simultaneous body contouring surgeries on a single patient is often performed because it's convenient and does not increase morbidity, as long as operative time and blood loss is limited. Overall patient's satisfaction is good, and a favorable impact on quality of life is demonstrated.
