Bariatric surgery offers rapid and massive weight loss, but can leave the body with a substantial amount of excess skin. Excess skin may have both physical and psychological consequences, including distortions of body image and skin problems, such as irritation. Body contouring performed for cosmetic purposes, or after weight loss, has the potential to improve one’s body image and health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Many studies have shown the interest of measuring this improvement using generic instruments. Unfortunately, these tools were not specifically designed for body contouring surgery, thus highlighting the lack of dedicated PRO instruments for measuring outcomes after body contouring surgery.
