Following the loss of significant amounts of weight, the body is often left with loose and sagging skin. To address this, many people undergo post-bariatric body contouring, a collection of treatments that can provide remarkable and long-lasting results. However, overlooked in most post-weight loss contouring procedures is the face and neck, despite the presence of excess skin these areas can be left with following rapid weight loss.
Bariatric surgery can allow for swift weight loss, but this process typically leaves a mass of unnecessary skin in the face and neck. This skin not only obscures results, it can produce an aged and unattractive look. To address this, facelift surgery is often the best bet. However, traditional facelift techniques are not always suitable when working with significant amounts of skin and tissue.
