The post-bariatric surgery patient presents several challenges to the surgeon. Correction of skin and subcutaneous redundancy can be difficult, particularly in massive-weight-loss patients with horizontal laxity, upper abdominal or flank laxity, and "double-roll" deformities. The aim of our study was to propose our modification of the "vest-over-pants" abdominoplasty technique to exploit all the advantages of the Planas technique in bariatric surgery patients and to solve the problem of extreme epigastric skin redundancy in difficult abdominal contour cases.
