About Massive Weight Loss Surgery

When a patient has had massive weight loss often the excess skin and tissue that remain can interfere with movement, become a conduit for rashes and hold odor, and even prevent you from getting into the clothing you should be able to wear with your new body and frankly getting to see the new body hiding beneath the excess skin. MWL is life-changing and many patients desire “putting a bow” on the final package, as this is a major achievement! Typically, these types of surgical procedures are considered after maintaining your goal weight for at least 3 months.
