Generously filled with insightful and practical advice, this guidebook to cosmetic surgery after dramatic weight loss helps readers locate the right doctor, address concerns about complications and side effects, and understand the benefits to having surgery. Experts answer such common questions as What kind of results can be anticipated? How many surgeries are necessary? and What kind of fees and insurance coverage can be expected? Are you among the tens of thousands of people who have lost a dramatic amount of weight?  If so, congratulations! You did it! Those years of struggling and failed diets are behind you. Perhaps you did it through weight loss surgery. Or, perhaps it was through diet and exercise. Either way, you have created a new body and a new life for yourself.nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;n bsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; nbsp; But, now that the weight is gone, are you left with extra skin?

The authors of this book, respected plastic surgeons, have performed hundreds of body contouring procedures on weight loss patients, and they understand your concerns as you explore having reconstructive surgery.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Patient-friendly softback packs clear concise information, multiple illustrations and photographs, tables and other visual guides."  —Journal of the Kentucky Medical Association

"Would fit well in public libraries, in resource centers, or specialty clinic offices." —Consumer Connection, newsletter of the Medical Library Association

Library Journal
This thorough, up-to-date exploration of the mechanics of body-contouring surgery is specifically written for people who have undergone substantial weight loss and are interested in having some of their resulting loose skin removed. The authors-all board-certified plastic surgeons with extensive experience in plastic and/or reconstructive surgery-include sections on when such surgery is indicated, how it is arranged, which medical professionals perform it, and specific bodily areas it targets (e.g., the abdomen, thighs, arms, face, and neck). One-page "Patient Profiles" detailing patients' experiences are peppered throughout each chapter and help keep the text relevant and realistic. The abundance of information found here is well organized and presented in an easy-to-read, conversational style. Highly recommended for all consumer health library collections, as the book covers an increasingly successful and popular area of plastic surgery. (Index not seen.)-Elizabeth J.
