Weight Loss Surgery


Body contouring surgery

after weight loss




In the past decade, there has been a 10 - 50% increase in obesity in Europe. In the adult population in England, this has increased from 6.2% to 22.6% between 1982 and 1999 and is continuing to increase. Some are able to lose weight themselves by diet, exercise and a change in their lifestyle, but others may need medical help including surgery.


New advances in medical science to help obese patients overcome their eating disorders have become very successful, although up until recently the loose, redundant skin they were left with following substantial weight loss has been seen as incidental. Because of the larger numbers now successfully treated by weight loss surgery, Plastic Surgeons across the world have seen an increased demand from patients who wish to do something to address this problem. Taking on the challenge to provide complex body contouring surgery, should only be taken on by the most experienced Plastic Surgeons and Mr Foo has a special and expert interest in this specialist field.


Body contouring surgery can comprise of the following procedures:


    


These procedures may be performed singularly or in combination with each other, depending on the extent of the patients individual needs and concerns. Often Body Contouring surgery will be performed in a staged manner over a number of months or years in order to allow a patient a period of good recovery in between procedures.
