Cosmetic Surgery After Massive Weight Loss

by Seth R. Thaller, Mimis Cohen

This book, Cosmetic Surgery After Massive Weight Loss, deals with cosmetic surgery. Obesity is an epidemic; however, bariatric surgery has been proven to be an effective and safe option for patients afflicted with massive obesity, a condition that is resistant to traditional diet and exercise regimens. Long-term studies show that the procedures used cause significant long-term loss of weight, recovery from diabetes, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors and a reduction in mortality. In the past, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeons have developed new and innovative techniques in craniofacial, micro and endoscopic surgery in order to meet the needs of patients suffering from burns, cancer and trauma. This book has solicited experts and innovators in their field to impart their experiences with these challenging patients. The authors have shared their extensive knowledge and covered every aspect of the comprehensive management of post-bariatric patients, from the actual options for weight loss surgery to the psychological needs of the individual patient. The authors then describe how to approach the patient and develop an overall treatment plan.
