Plastic surgery improves long-term weight control after bariatric surgery

Published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. 2013, vol. 132, no. 4, p. 826-33
Abstract The positive impact of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass on weight, comorbidities, and health-related quality of life is well documented. However, 50 percent of patients regain some of the lost weight after 2 years with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and present a mean weight regain of 10 to 15 percent after several years, partially losing the previously obtained benefits. The authors hypothesize that body contouring could decrease weight regain, leading to better long-term weight control after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
