Abstract

The most effective treatment for morbid obesity has demonstrated to be bariatric surgery. Despite enormous benefits, skin tissue aberrations are inevitable consequences. Our study was focused on micro- and macroscopic modifications in patients who had previously undergone gastric bypass. These preliminary data suggest that tissue alterations, partly responsible for high wound complications rate, may differ among patients undergoing both different and same weight loss procedures.
