Cosmetic Surgery As a Surgical Service After Weight Loss or Bariatric Surgery

As the need for weight loss or bariatric surgery increases, some of those who have had the surgery will desire cosmetic surgery to remove excess skin. For example, according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, one bariatric surgeon indicated that at least ten percent of his weight loss patients get cosmetic surgery after bariatric surgery.

The cosmetic surgery performed to remove excess skin is sometimes referred to as body contouring plastic surgery. Examples of those who need this type of surgery are shown here. We believe that weight loss or bariatric centers should consider offering body contouring plastic surgery to those persons who desire the surgery after having lost a large amount of weight.

We believe that offering the plastic surgery service should be a possible strategic objective for most bariatric centers. And we believe that bariatric or weight loss managers involved in strategic management should examine this plastic surgery to determine if the surgery is a viable service option. Offering body contouring plastic surgery could give a bariatric or weight loss center a competitive advantage.
