For a person to lose 100 pounds or more shows an incredible dedication to weight loss and to their overall health. As a plastic surgeon, I want to help them realize their ultimate goals for their bodies by offering plastic surgery options specific to their needs.
Paramus, NJ (PRWEB) August 7, 2008
Recent research by the Centers for Disease Control has found a dramatic increase in the prevalence of obesity between the years of 1990 and 2006. In 1990, no states had prevalence greater than or equal to 15%. In contrast, only 4 states had a prevalence of obesity less than 20% in 2006; and two states had prevalence greater than or equal to 30%.
A dramatic increase in the number of bariatric surgeries has accompanied this increase in the prevalence of obesity. Indeed, the number of bariatric surgeries, performed within the U.S. rose by 450% between the years of 1988 and 2002.
Board-certified, New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Parker, can help to reshape a body's contour following the massive weight loss associated with a bariatric surgical procedure.
Dr. Parker says, "For a person to lose 100 pounds or more shows an incredible dedication to weight loss and to their overall health. As a plastic surgeon, I want to help them realize their ultimate goals for their bodies by offering plastic surgery options specific to their needs."
Dr. Parker has varied cosmetic surgery techniques to remove the presence of the loose, saggy skin resulting from this massive weight loss. Examples of such surgical techniques he offers in New Jersey: tummy tuck, thigh and buttock lift, breast lift, arm lift, and facelift.
As with all of his plastic surgery procedures, those for post bariatric patients are performed in Surgiplex, the Parker Center's onsite fully certified ambulatory surgical facility in New Jersey. Plastic surgery is recommended by Dr. Parker at least one year after bypass surgery or when weight loss has plateaued for three to six months.
Individuals who wish to eliminate the loose, saggy skin which resulted from a bariatric surgery performed one year earlier, or individuals whose weight loss has stabilized for a period of three to six months after having a bariatric operation, are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Parker.
Dr. Parker is always happy to discuss the various options available to contour the shape of the body following a gastric bypass procedure.
