With the advent of bariatric surgery, body contouring has grown to a new speciality in plastic surgery. Following massive weight loss, patients generally have skin redundancy on the trunk, buttocks, breast, upper arms, thighs and face, leading to a poor quality of life and social acceptance. This condition motivates many patients to consult a plastic surgeon to address these problems. Thus, plastic surgery has become an integral part of the surgical treatment of the morbidly obese. The aim of post-bariatric plastic surgery should be to restore a normal body image of the patient with as few surgeries as possible and with a tolerable risk. This article addresses different plastic surgery procedures that can be successfully applied in order to correct various body contouring deformities. Patient selection, technical details, pre- and postoperative care, possible complications and expected results are all discussed.
