“There is the idea that obesity only needs to be treated when there are extreme levels of overweight, however, it is important to be aware of its complications, as it leads to diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, fatty liver, among others, which can be fatal ”, highlights Dr. Fernando Schiaffino Rocca, general surgeon and specialist in bariatric and metabolic surgery at our clinic.
Main treatments we offer to fight overweight and obesity
These treatments decrease gastric capacity and the sensation of appetite, so the patient will be satisfied by eating less food. Likewise, it will improve your health in case you suffer from any disease associated with obesity. Among them we have:
Gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and intragastric balloon
“In patients who have had a significant weight loss, we combine dermoplasty and the latest generation laser technology, which will make us obtain better results since if the amount of excess skin to be removed is less, it will give us a more natural effect, it will favor the healing and recovery process of the patient ”, says Dr. Enrique Chau, plastic surgeon at our clinic.
What is dermoplasty plus laser liposculpture?
It is a modern treatment and less invasive than conventional treatment, which removes the skin in less quantity. It goes hand in hand with laser liposuction, which internally firms the tissues, achieving a better adhesion of the skin.
Who are candidates for this procedure?
Patients who have had a considerable weight loss, whose skin, despite physical exercise and diets, can no longer return to its natural state due to distention. This type of patient will present excess skin in different parts of the body, being able to be successfully remodeled thanks to dermoplasty with laser liposculpture and other less invasive treatments.
