Abstract

Bariatric surgery, an important treatment modality for pathological obesity, has been increasingly accepted by obese patients. However, the excess skin and the relaxation of muscles and soft tissues after bariatric surgery also bring many troubles and severely affect the quality of life. Body contouring after weight loss surgery can increase the patients satisfaction and self-confidence.
