The correction of massive weight loss is the procedure that will allow us to remove the skin that has lost its elasticity due to the “stretching” action caused by fat. The most important question of interest about this intervention is when should I have the surgery? Most patients become good candidates for surgery when excess skin prevents them from carrying out their daily activities.
Now, it is possible that as weight is reduced, some procedures can be carried out, although this requires individualization of the cases and an exhaustive assessment by Dr. Cárdenas.
Now, in cases where weight loss is less in a range of 15 to 30kg, most of the time only with performing a tummy tuck we will obtain optimal results.
