After Weight Reduction People Opt For Special Plastic Surgery to Tone Their Body

Obese patients opt for various surgical body-contouring procedures. This is done on post-bariatric surgery patients. After they lose a significant// amount of weigh their body starts’ sagging hence cosmetic Plastic Reconstructive Surgery is done. Statistics shows that about 22 % of the patients opt for this surgery. The study was published by Plastic Surgeons in the journal of Plastic Reconstructive Surgery.

In this some of the leading practitioner in field describe in detail about the benefits of the improved mid-body lift techniques. ‘The radical weight loss following gastric by-pass leads to improved blood pressure, and in many patients improves or eliminates diabetes symptoms,’ said Berish Strauch, MD, chairman of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Montefiore Medical Center, and author of the paper. ‘Nevertheless, patients are left with a massive sagging of the entire body that leads to severe medical and cosmetic deformities,’ said Dr. Strauch, who now finds that 80 percent of his surgical practice involves post-bariatric surgery patients. ‘It is truly gratifying to be able to give these patients the body they have dreamed of having.’

‘A traditional abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is insufficient for these patients, who after this kind of extreme weight loss require a special operation called a circumferential adbominoplasty, a type of complicated, mid-body lift, which we have modified,’ said Dr. Strauch. ‘We trim excess skin from the stomach, thighs and buttocks in one operation, rotating the patient carefully on the operating table during the surgery,’ Dr. Strauch said. At a later date, we perform plastic surgery on other areas of the body. This staged approach improves the patients' quality of life, has wonderful esthetic results and has proven to be safe and effective. Dr. Strauch describes 75 mid-body lift operations in the article.

He has performed more than 300 of these new procedures in the past five year s. Circumferential abdominoplasty is more extensive than a standard tummy tuck, and involves additional operating room time, more blood loss and increased recovery time, the article says. After recovery, typically three months later, further body contouring procedures are considered such as brachioplasty (trimming underarm 'wings') as well as breast, thigh, face, neck and back lifts. Each of these procedures requires special techniques for formerly obese patients, said Dr. Strauch. He notes a remarkably low incidence of complications. Only one patient has experienced deep vein clotting, and there have not been any cases of pulmonary emboli or seroma problems.
