This is the name of certain surgical procedures employed in modern surgical practice in order to control the patient’s weight. These procedures are usually performed by general surgeons and usually concern the stomach. After the so desired weight loss though, skin surplus issues all over the body arise.

The plastic surgeon has to correct each body area individually like the face and neck (in both men and women), belly, legs and buttocks. This requires usage of certain techniques that remove surplus skin and restore the balance of the body.
