Should i undergo skin removal surgery after having a bariatric surgery? I am a fifty-year-old woman and recently had surgery to lose weight. I am very happy to say that all is well and I have been shedding pounds very quickly. However, I have noticed that

The : The decision to undergo skin removal after weight loss is often a personal one. While some skin problems such as infections in skin folds or extreme overhang makes a procedure medically necessary other issues are more purely cosmetic. Insurance coverage is not available for most of these procedures except the removal of the abdominal apron which is sometimes covered. ...Read more

I am currently on a weight loss journey, and was curious about excess skin removal surgery. What are the prices and where are the scars? Sw: 325 gw: 120

Scars are scars: Body lift surgery, which is what you are asking about, will always leave you with scars, but if you go to a plastic surgeon with experience in body lifts, he will place the scars in the least conspicous places (e.g. Inner thighs, bikini line, inner arms, etc). The goals of body lift surgery are to reduce the excess skin and improve the form/function, so you can wear clothes and perform activities. ...Read more

Is it possible to have skin removal surgery on my neck and my stomach area at the same time? I want skin removal surgery for the folds of sagging skin on my neck and flabby loose skin on my abdomen (i've had three children). Is it usual to have two areas

There : There are plastic surgeons who will perform more than one surgery at a time. You would need a complete medical evaluation by your internal medicine physician first to be sure that you don't have any concerning medical conditions. Then your plastic surgeon can discuss the risks with you. Any time that you perform more than one surgery at a time, it does increase the surgery time and the surgery risk. ...Read more

Cut myself on my bike wheel but it was a light scrape, no blood but some skin removal. Do I need to be concerned about tetanus or no chance?

Cut myself on my bike wheel but it was a light scrape, no blood but some skin removal. Do I need to be concerned about tetanus or no chance?

NO worry, but....: You don't have to worry about this specific incident. The likelihood of tetanus infection in a scrape injury is very low. That being said, it is no joking matter to stay up to date with your immunizations as an adult. So if it has been 10 years since your last tetanus vaccine, it is still time to get it done. Contact your doctor or the local health department about what shots you are due for. ...Read more
