A Guide to Cosmetic Surgery after Weight Loss
Thinking about Body Contouring Surgery?
If you’ve lost a dramatic amount of weight, you are no doubt thrilled with your accomplishment. However, you may be disappointed that you still have a problem—loose skin that will not respond to diet or exercise.
If you’re in this situation, bariatric plastic surgery may be a solution. This cosmetic surgery removes the excess skin and restores more natural-looking body contours.
The authors of Bariatric Plastic Surgery are board-certified plastic surgeons who have performed hundreds of these plastic surgery procedures. In this book, they discuss the procedures that many weight-loss patients choose: tummy tucks, breast lifts, thigh and buttock lifts, arm lifts, and face lifts. They also discuss upper and lower body lifts, which are combinations of these procedures performed in a single operation. The book also covers:
- Choosing an experienced plastic surgeon
- Pre-surgical preparations and lab tests you’ll need
- Details of each cosmetic surgery procedure
- Postoperative follow-up care and pain management
- Side effects and potential complications of surgery
The book contains 100 before-and-after photos of patients who have undergone these bariatric plastic surgery procedures. Illustrations show incision placement and resulting scars for each procedure.
