Weight Loss Surgery

Why do people have plastic surgery after weight loss?

As public awareness of the health risks associated with obesity, including hypertension, diabetes and joint problems, continues to grow and with bariatric surgery becoming more available, it is not uncommon to see patients losing large amounts of weight – often up to 10 stones.

Following weight loss of this nature plastic surgery can be necessary to correct a number of aesthetic problems, many of which are associated with excess skin.

What can I expect before surgery?

Patients must have maintained a stable weight for at least a year before undergoing surgery. As part of the pre-operative evaluation the surgeon will also run a variety of physiological and psychological screening tests in order to confirm that the patient is properly nourished and mentally prepared for surgery.

Is it possible to have a combination of procedures done at the same time?

Yes, it is normal for patients undergoing plastic surgery after weight loss to undergo a combination of procedures. Combinations can include some, or all, of the following procedures: abdominoplasty, arm reduction, breast surgery, facial surgery, thigh reduction.

I can't recommend Dr Sood enough he has done an amazing job looking at it a week after the op it looks great nothing gory like I had imagined. The fact he takes time out to be reassuring too is a bonus. If I was ever to get a Glomus tumour again I wouldn't even question having it done again .
