Who is a good candidate for Post-Bariatric Surgery?

The best candidates for body lift would be women or men who have large fat deposits or loose, sagging skin secondary to massive weight loss as a result of diet, exercise or bariatric surgery such as gastric bypass or Lap-Band procedures. This procedure has also been used for moderate to severely obese patients who do not want to undergo weight loss prior to surgery. This procedure will also result in back, lateral thigh and buttocks lift with dramatic result. Body lift are performed on an outpatient basis or inpatient in a hospital and general anaesthesia is used. Body Lift usually takes two to four hours.
