Should plastic surgery come before or after big weight loss?

When it
comes to important overweight or obesity and all soft medical solutions fail, we
tend to think of bariatric surgery as a first step to lose weight and then
plastic surgery as a second step to remove the lose extra skin. But in so many
cases plastic surgery may not solve all problems, especially when the skin is
badly damaged with the fast and continuous weight lost. Some body areas may not
be operated, and after all we cannot change the skin all over the body. This is
the missing part of most huge weight loss success stories we may read about in “chirurgie esthetique magazines”.

surgery as a step to prepare the body for huge weight loss

It is
important to recognize the danger as well as the side effects of bariatric
surgery. Besides its devastating effects on the skin, which in most cases are irreversible.
As such motivating a person to lose weight may start with a first step like liposuccion
or tummy tuck
. This step allows the patient to see a prompt result and to get the missing
motivation to proceed with further effort to lose weight. The surgery itself
affects (especially the first days) the patient’s appetite. The compression garment
tightens the tummy and affects the stomach by the pressure it does, and such
the patient has the impression the stomach is full. On the psychological side,
the fact that the patient sees quick results of weight loss and may quickly
start choosing smaller size clothes that fit better to the new morphology may
only be beneficial. With this motivation, the patient may be prepared to change
the daily habits and to include more physical activity in daily life.

weight loss rather than fast uncontrollable weight loss

The fact
that the patient loses gradually weight is by far healthier than irrevocable
weight loss due to bariatric surgery. The danger of bariatric surgery is mainly
due to the fact that when the process is launched it may no longer be stooped.
It affects all the body and may cause hair loss, anemia, visual disorders… On
the other hand, immediate morphology change due to plastic surgery may boost
the patients’ motivation to change their lifestyle and to move positively
forward towards a total change without losing the psychological pleasure
related to food, appetite and joy of life. As such when we compare the budget
for bariatric surgery and plastic surgery as a first step toward a whole
change, it is worth considering plastic surgery abroad where costs are cheaper
