The benefits from bariatric surgery (think: gastric bypass or gastric band) can be tremendous… Decreased blood pressure, improvement or eradication of sleep apnea, and decreased risk or cure of obesity complications including diabetes, heart attack and stroke.
However, with radical weight loss comes changes in appearance. Though these are mostly positive changes (e.g., slimmer waistline), patients can be left with sagging or even hanging skin along the jawline and under the chin– which are some of the most visible areas of the body during normal, everyday social interaction.
We see many patients with this issue. And those patients who have the procedure are ecstatic with their face/necklift results!
