Weight loss surgery and body contouring is very expensive these days. Though common sense states that if you get rid of the weight, it is wiser to use a smaller vessel. Despite this, when patients undergo weight loss surgery and have fat removed, they seldom get rid of the excess skin, resulting in bad body contouring.

Plastic surgeons are of the mind that doctors either have no idea about the added surgery or patyients just opt out because they cant afford it.

Simply can’t afford it — yet doctors say it’s more than just a cosmetic procedure.

Jason Spector at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York said, “It is surgery that improves patients’ quality of life.”

The skin that remains hanging is reported to come in the way of exercising, interfere with patients’ ability to dress properly and cause serious infections.

Spector added, “In order to complete the journey, patients really do need to undergo the appropriate post-bariatric body contouring. Even though that has a slightly cosmetic ring to it, it’s certainly something that we, as plastic surgeons, would consider reconstructive.”

Just one fourth of the patients discussed body contouring with their surgeon before the surgery and a meager 12% agree to go through it. The findings were presented by Spector at the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

    I dont have a problem with the people who beleive in plastic surgery. but to be completly honest. we have all seen what a couple of years after plastic surgery looks. Its super expencive and you could end up worse of then you started. My suggestion is the old fasioned way. a healthy system of Dieting, meaning eating foods that are better for you than the fast food junk we eat everyday, making time to actually work out, then figuring out your body. Do you lose weight or gain weight?? Either way a great way of ballencing out your system could be here at this site.
