Plastic surgery cannot make an obese person skinny. What plastic surgery can do is remove problem areas of fat that you have trouble getting rid of with diet and exercise. It can also remove loose skin that occurs with aging, after losing weight, or after childbirth. But it’s unrealistic to think that plastic surgery can make someone who’s very overweight look thin.
Have you decided to move forward? It’s an exciting time! To ensure the whole experience goes as smoothly as possible, we provide patients the following checklist to help prepare. Read through it so you have a good idea of how to best prepare yourself. Remember, this is just a sample checklist for a specific procedure at our practice. Your surgeon may have a different set of instructions for your particular procedure. This checklist is simply provided as a guide to discussion between you and your surgeon.

Continue to read through some of these to get a better idea of what to expect. These are meant to be guidelines for discussion only. Please check with your surgeon on his/her specific instructions to follow.
