Obesity is one of the most significant medical conditions in today's adult population, occurring at an estimated frequency of 35% with prevalence rates continuing to rise.1 In surgery, obesity has been shown to be an independent preoperative risk factor for unfavorable outcomes.2 This poses a challenge to plastic surgeons, especially since many of these procedures are aimed to treat the sequela of obesity and massive weight loss.
