Is post-bariatric body contouring surgery prevent weight regain or no, and what is the effect on the patient's Metabolism? Few literature studies report body contouring surgery to be positively associated with maintained weight loss after obesity surgery but the measures of outcomes are diverse, and the collective magnitude of such an association is unknown.

The changes in gastrointestinal hormones, adipokines, and cytokines as well as in hypothalamic neuropeptides and neurotransmitters resemble the changes observed in the anorexia/cachexia, suggesting that bariatric surgery triggers a catabolic state responsible for loss of appetite and prolonged body weight reduction.

Weight regain after gastric bypass surgery occurs in about half of all patients within 2 years. About 50% of patients eventually gain a little weight back after hitting their low point. We need a more thorough evaluation to determine what factors - medical, psychological, lifestyle - are involved in the weight gain. One of the factors that seem to be responsible for the degree and durability of weight loss is post-bariatric body contouring procedures. However, metabolic consequences of removing excess subcutaneous adipose tissue by body contouring procedures have to a lesser extent been explored
