Plastic Surgery

After weight loss surgery, some patients do require plastic surgery or reconstructive surgery to remove some of the excess skin. This skin might be removed from the abdominal region or from the arms or the legs. However, there are some patients who never require any type of reconstructive surgery or plastic surgery after having their weight loss operation. Every individual is different and it's really impossible to predict whether or not somebody would need plastic surgery after having weight loss surgery.
