How Plastic Surgery Can Help Patients
In popular media, plastic surgery is often portrayed as shallow or frivolous. The reality is that plastic surgery provides valuable care to patients. For example, excess skin left over from massive weight loss can prevent patients from feeling that their transformation is successful or complete. These patients are sometimes embarrassed about their excess skin–despite their healthier lifestyle.
Body contouring after massive weight loss can help those patients complete that journey. Whether it’s a body lift or a tummy tuck, contouring after weight loss means patients can feel confident, healthy, and happy. In many ways, that’s what plastic surgery is all about: helping patients complete their journey and feel safe and secure in their identities.
For some patients, that’s the anti-aging impact of facelift and blepharoplasty. For others, that means feeling whole again thanks to breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Plastic surgery can produce subtle or bold impacts–but the goal is always to help the patient feel more genuine, confident, and comfortable.
