The consequences of massive weight loss through bariatric procedures as well as diet are overall positive. However, the sequelae of massive weight loss present themselves as soft tissue redundancies in the areas of the lower abdomen, upper thigh, upper arm and breast as well as face and neck. This condition presents significant mechanical, physical and social day-to-day limitations for the quality of life of these patients. Surgical techniques are indicated for the reconstruction of the body shape and therapy of the above named problems and the coexistent psychosocial component. These surgical techniques involve dermolipectomies in different body areas and can lead to significant improvement. In view of the worldwide increase of adipositas and the increasing need for bariatric surgery, a parallel increase in demand for such reconstructive post-bariatric interventions can be foreseen. Early and precise information is crucial for the patients before engaging in weight reduction, as is the coverage of the costs of the resulting secondary reconstructive body contouring interventions by the insurance companies.
