Weight Loss Surgery
There are many types of weight loss surgery available, and each is designed to reduce excess weight. However, bariatric surgery does not remove excess skin or create slimmer contours on the body. Most often, body contouring is performed to improve a person’s figure following significant weight loss, either from surgery or from diet and exercise. Often, weight loss surgery is combined with body contouring surgery to create the most comprehensive and attractive results.
Known as bariatric surgery, these procedures use different techniques to promote weight loss. You should understand the various types of malabsorptive and restrictive surgeries, and consult with an experienced bariatric surgeon to determine which one is best for producing the desired results.
