Management of your patients post massive weight loss: Plastic Surgery Options

On-demand recorded 13 Oct 2020

Bariatric procedures allow patients to lose weight quickly in large amounts. The weight loss has medical, functional and psychological effects on the patient. Most will require corrective surgery for the skin redundancy to improve function, aesthetics and health. In this webinar we'll explore the common plastic surgical options (and pitfalls) in the patient's journey post bariatric surgery and massive weight loss.

Learning outcomes

  1. Be aware of the common bariatric surgeries and likely weight loss
  2. Identify patients who will benefit from body contouring post massive weight loss
  3. Assess nutritional health of patients post bariatric surgery prior to body contouring
  4. Manage common post-operative presentations
