Undoubtedly, the dramatic increase in obesity in recent years in the western world, due to the large increase in the globalization of the welfare state, has led to plastic surgeons to rethink more effective strategies in the solutions to the problems that this tendency originates.

The solutions for obesity are multiple, some social, such as diet, physical exercise, ordering of type lifestyles etc. more specific to medicine in general because in addition to aesthetic problems, obesity is also cause major health disorders. Other pharmacological treatments also require to have their causes in some diseases and some require more radical surgical treatments, such as morbid obesity, as it can seriously threaten life itself.

The cosmetic surgery can help fix obesity when it is located, especially through liposuction specific areas such as the abdomen, thighs, etc.

¿Because cosmetic surgery can provide solution to sagging after thinnings


The cosmetic surgery is final and primary after thinnings, where inevitably appear a more or less intense sagging all over the body, depending on the age, intensity and speed of weight loss, etc.

In recent years our team has specialized in the solutions thoroughly flaccid post thinning, which has allowed us to intervene several flacideces in one surgical operation.

We list the most frequent interventions in the treatment of major post thinning sagging:

  • Abdominoplasty, abdominal Dermolipectomia: Operation that removes all excess skin and fat from the umbilicus to the pubis and tense all remaining abdominal tissues
  • .
  • Liposuction: For use in specific areas to remove excess fat accumulated after thinning eg sides, thighs, arms, etc.
  • .
  • Mastopexy: It consists of remodeling and raising the flaccid breast and fall after the thinning. In the case of large breasts, lifting and tensioning the fabric or, in case of smaller breasts, adding prosthesis.
  • Meloplastia Crural. Destined to correct sagging of the inner thigh through incisions in the groin, separation and stretching of the skin and excess fat
  • Brachioplasty. Excision and stretching of the skin and fat from the inside of the arm from the armpit to the elbow
  • Dermolipectomia Lumbar: This involves the extirpation of flaccid and lower back area and the tightening of the buttocks with or without placement of prosthesis, according to case
  • .
  • Facelift: By incisions hidden in the hair around the ear, stretching the skin of the face and neck, removing sagging

Since these defects are presented together in different proportions according to each person thinning, the breakthrough achieved with the combined experience of these years to advances in cosmetic surgery and anesthesia, is the ability to perform many of these procedures in one surgical act. We got so minimize stay in clinic which rarely exceed 24 to 48 hours, plus considerably reduce risks treatment of obesity or large slimming sagging post.
