Mass Weight Loss

Obesity Recovery {Massive or Large Weight Loss (MAW)}

It concerns former overweight people who have lost many kilos after stomach surgery (gastric ring-gastric compartment) or after diet. It usually involves a loss of 25 kilos or more. The end result of great weight loss is intense deformity: great sagging and excess skin hanging in folds in various areas. The characteristic in this category is that the collagen fibers are almost destroyed and there is repeated relaxation after the corrective operations, but to a much lesser extent. It is for this reason that it must be understood that, in many cases, repeat surgeries are needed , usually on a smaller scale.

The usual in this category is the combination of operations, as follows:

  • Breast lift (or Painless Augmentation) & Brachioplasty
  • Brachioplasty & Thigh lift
  • Painless Abdominoplasty & Thigh Lift
  • Painless Abdominoplasty & Brachioplasty
  • Painless Abdominoplasty & Breast Lift (or Painless Augmentation)
  • Buttock Lift & Enlargement & Painless Abdominoplasty
  • Bloodless Lifting & Brachioplasty
  • Bloodless Lifting & Breast Lift (or Painless Breast Augmentation)

Of course any other combination is debatable. 

In addition to reducing the cost of surgery, the duration of surgery and, consequently, the safety of patients is a determining factor . It is now internationally recognized that surgeries lasting up to 3 hours have minimal complications, and the same is true for combination surgeries up to 5 hours.
