Dr. Tom K. Pousti answered:

I can't lose the last 20 pounds what are my cosmetic surgery options?

Depends on Situation

Liposuction
You may benefit from “consultation” with personal trainers and/or nutritionists. On the other hand, if you feel like you have reached a long-term stable weight, it may be time to seek consultation with board certified plastic surgeons. Sometimes procedures such as panniculectomy may be very helpful even though patients are not quite at their long-term stable weight. Best wishes.

I had gastric bypass 3 years ago, but am still trying to get the last 20 pounds off, how many calories a day should I consume to lose?

More out than in..

Gastric_bypass_surgery
Weight loss is a matter of burning more than you take in. A good place to start is around 1000 calories a day, make sure you keep up with your protein intake and your post bypass vitamins. Then you need to exercise to burn more than you take in..

Healthy way for a teenager to lose 20 pounds? I had my spine reconstructed last August and got horribly out of shape during my recovery.

Calorie reduction

Losing weight is not just about exercising but calorie restriction is vital. You'll still need to balance your calories properly. Find a physician to get a plan of action or a nutritionist who can help you figure out the best kinda of diet for you.

I have lost 50 pounds in a year with weight loss surgery. I don't want to diet, I haven't lost anything in 6 months how do I lose the last 20-30?

Easy part over

Bariatric_surgery
For about a year after surgery the surgery itself has done the work and weight loss has been relatively easy. From here on out unfortunately, any further weight loss is almost all up to you throught calorie restriction and exercise. Calories out has to be more than calories in..

Stay the course of exercise and calorie control. Give your body's metabolism a chance to balance itself at your new lower weight. Try not to watch the scale too much. Keep your doctor involved in your weight management routine, asking her to measure you as well as weigh you.

I used to be anorexic and bulimic and I am afraid I am going to revert back if I don't lose these last 15-20 lbs.?

Healthy weight loss

Open-uri20121228-25077-1q9q0n3
If needed, there are much healthier ways to lose weight than reverting to anorexia or bulimia. Please see your physician and/or therapist before you relapse. You need to help yourself stay healthy. Good luck to you.
