We read with great interest the manuscript entitled “What is the impact of comorbidities on the risk for postoperative body-contouring surgery complications in postbariatric patients?” by Rosa et al . We would like to congratulate the authors for their work and their conclusion which confirms and reinforces others’ previous findings [2, 3, 4]. The authors aimed to evaluate the impact of diabetes, arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, and metabolic syndrome on the occurrence of postoperative complications following body-contouring surgery. Diabetes, dyslipidemia, and metabolic syndrome were risk factors for postoperative complication in univariate analysis, and the multivariate analysis did not confirm those findings.
We would like to discuss some points related to this article and to provide insight based on our experience in order to develop future studies about postbariatric body-contouring surgery. Two challenges remain. First of all, we have to clearly identify risk factors for...
