Many people struggle with their weight, and we all know that obesity can lead to a number of health problems. The desire to be healthier and more fit is the first step in a successful weight loss journey, but losing a large amount of weight is not an easy task. Nonetheless, the benefits of taking control of your health are many, and you’re more likely to succeed if you surround yourself with the right people.
It Takes a Village to Support Major Weight Loss
Losing a great deal of weight takes dedication and perseverance. Further, massive weight loss also takes a team of professionals to help you reach your goal. If you’re having bariatric surgery, you may work with many experts including your surgeon, nurses, dietitians and physical therapists. You may also speak with counselors or psychologists to help you process the psychological effects of an extreme weight loss. Once you have lost the weight, you may want to consider plastic surgery to help you deal with excess skin and other common post weight-loss issues.
Choosing Your Plastic Surgeon for Post-Weight Loss Body Contouring
When considering which plastic surgeon you’d like to have on your team, choose someone who has a great deal of experience with body contouring after a major weight loss. When you go to your surgical consultation, ask lots of questions, insist on seeing before and after pictures, and find out how much of the surgeon’s practice is dedicated to this kind of surgery. Further, talk about which procedures, such as a tummy tuck or thigh lift, could benefit you most and why.
Your plastic surgeon can help you create a post-weight lost plan that includes procedures tailored to your specific needs.
