Post-Bariatric Surgery

While obesity can cause life-threatening secondary diseases, it can also deeply affect the psychology of the individual. Obesity surgeries may be considered as the only remedy when diets or exercise programs to lose weight do not yield any results. Obesity surgeries can be performed using different techniques, and these techniques can differentiate the changes made in the body. In general, both stomach volume can be restricted, and nutrient absorption can be reduced at the same time with obesity surgeries. As a result of the physiological differentiation that occurs in the body, individuals can lose weight rapidly and significantly. Scientific studies demonstrate that individuals can lose 70% - 80% of their excess weight in the first 1-2 years after obesity surgeries.

Due to dramatic weight loss, sagging is quite normal and expected to occur in many parts of the body after obesity surgeries. Sagging may not be able to recover with regular exercises related to the amount of weight lost. In such a case, post-bariatric surgeries come into question.

What is Post-Bariatric Surgery? How Is It Performed?

Post-bariatric surgery refers to the aesthetic procedures, which can be performed in combination or alone, and which are performed to remove the deformations that occur in the body due to excessive weight loss after obesity surgeries such as gastric bypass, gastric bypass, gastric bypass, and mini gastric bypass. Since post-bariatric surgeries are performed in combination, results can be obtained simultaneously in multiple parts of the body within a single recovery period.

There are no standard answers to the question of "How is post-bariatric surgery performed?" . In general, body shaping procedures are carried out in a certain order in line with the needs of patients. Abdominoplasty, breast lift and reduction aesthetics, arm lift surgery, thighplasty and back lift surgery can be combined according to their regional proximity. Post bariatric surgeries are performed under general anesthesia, and are completed within 1-3 hours depending on the scope of the procedure.

Who Can Have Post-Bariatric Surgery?

Post-bariatric surgery can be considered appropriate for individuals, who experience excessive weight loss in short time by adhering to nutrition and exercise plans after the obesity procedures, who completed the weight loss process and reached a stable weight, who have sagging in several parts of the body due to weight loss, who want to improve the body shape, have suitable general medical conditions for the procedure, who are determined to maintain healthy eating habits after procedures, and who have realistic expectations.

Planning Process Before Post-Bariatric Surgery

Within the scope of post-bariatric surgery, it is necessary to evaluate the degrees of sagging in the patients as well as the conditions specific to the patient, and plan the order of the procedures to be performed with the aim of improving the body shape by improving the sagging. It is not possible to perform all procedures at once, and the techniques that should be administered on a patient-specific basis may also vary. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the expectations of the patients in the light of their general medical conditions. Regarding post-bariatric surgeries, it should be known that the order of procedures may also vary. The result to be obtained after each procedure may affect the general dynamics of the body, and it may become necessary to revise the planning after the recovery.

Recovery Process After Post-Bariatric Surgery

Many different factors can affect the recovery process after post-bariatric surgery, such as the age of the individual, general medical condition, structure of the skin, and how much the individual follows the rules in the recovery process. Patients can stay in the hospital for 1-2 days after procedures performed under general anesthesia. Combined procedures performed in post-bariatric surgery can be completed within a few months and sometimes within months. Patience is essential for patients to achieve proper body contours. In the post operative period;

• Activities that increase blood pressure should be avoided.

• At least 3-4 weeks should be waited to start heavy sports.

• The patients should rest, and use the prescribed medication for pain control.

• Recommendations specific to the procedures performed should be considered; if the use of corset is recommended, it should be used regularly.

• Banned foods should not be consumed during the recovery period, and a healthy diet should be followed.

• Healthy living habits should be adopted in the post-operative period.

• Smoking and alcohol consumption, which may interfere with the recovery process, should be avoided.
