Chapter

Abstract

The increase in the number of bariatric surgery procedures over the last decade has led to a large number of massive-weight-loss patients seeking improvement in their resultant body contour deformities caused by the process of weight gain and subsequent loss. In this chapter, the reader will become familiar with the typical presentation of the massive-weight-loss patient to the plastic surgeon and the most common body-contouring procedures utilized to improve their deformities.
