Dr. Joel Aronowitz, Specialist in Los Angeles Body Lift, Announces Plastic Surgery Options After Bariatric Surgery Weight Loss
Date:8/29/2008

http://www.aronowitzmd.com [Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon], Dr. Joel Aronowitz, has respected experience in plastic surgery procedures for post bariatric weight loss patients. Special consideration may be necessary for these patients' health and wellness. Dr. Aronowitz and staff have an established specialty of procedures for after weight loss.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2008 -- Bariatric surgery improves the health of morbidly obese people helping them lose the weight. Patients may be left with over 100 pounds lost but also with sagging skin. After gastric bypass and diet, patients finally have a healthy weight for one person but are left with enough redundant skin for two. Board certified http://www.aronowitzmd.com [Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon], Dr. Joel Aronowitz, announces plastic surgery options available to help patients achieve the body they want after bariatric surgery and weight loss.    

Bariatric surgery has become a life-changing weight loss alternative for dangerously obese people. Sometimes it is the only option available to take off the weight. According to a story in the "Los Angeles Times" by Susan Brink, nearly 14,000 people in California alone have some type of weight loss procedure yearly.

The health benefits are undeniable. According to Brink, studies have shown that weight loss due to bariatric surgery can actually reverse diabetes, which is a common affliction of the obese. Other health issues that are greatly alleviated or prevented are joint pain and arthritis, heart disease and respiratory problems.

For a morbidly obese person, the health risks typically outweigh any risks from surgery. However, once the weight has come off, there is a new issue to address. Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Joel Aronowitz, sees this every day in his practice at Cedars Sinai Medical Towers. He says, "My patients have taken control of their health and lost the weight, but they still lack the self-confidence that should come with extreme weight loss."

The problem is excess sagging skin that was stretched and filled with fat. Once the fat is gone, the skin droops; its elasticity ability to bounce back is gone. Dr. Aronowitz offers to his patients a variety of plastic surgery procedures that eliminate this loose skin.

For example, the excess skin of the abdominal area may droop over the pants and keep her from wearing form-fitting clothes or him from taking his shirt off in public. It can make a person very self-conscious. Dr. Aronowitz will evaluate the patient and probably suggest a belt lipectomy ("body lift") and/or http://www.aronowitzmd.com/before-after-beverly-hills-tummy-tuck-10.html [tummy tuck. Los Angeles] men and women have this procedure to pull the skin taut, remove the excess and smooth out the abdominal area.

Each post-bariatric patient is different, and Dr. Aronowitz insists on a thorough consultation to determine treatment. He comments, "Some patients may need just a tummy tuck, while others may need more than one procedure. It is a case by case situation." The amount of weight lost and the condition of the skin helps determine the areas in need of attention.

Dr. Aronowitz may recommend a number of procedures such as the armplasty, which tightens and shapes the arms, or a thigh lift, which tightens and lifts the thigh area. Some patients may need all over treatment, in which case he may recommend a complete body lift. This procedure addresses abdominal region, the thighs and buttocks.

It may also be necessary to complement the procedures with liposuction to get the best possible look. Sometimes stubborn fat pockets don't go away even after bariatric surgery.
Dr. Aronowitz said, "I have done my job when I help a person gain back even a little of her self-esteem and confidence after successfully losing weight."
