Weight loss surgery has been on the rise the past several years. The rise in bariatric surgery has caused the plastic surgery procedures, such as tummy tuck, thigh lift, upper arm lift, and breast lift surge. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) 2014 report shows that procedures associated with massive weight loss have the fastest growth rate in four years. According to the report, 45000 patients (around 25%) of all weight loss surgery patients (179,000 in 2013) had some type of plastic surgery.
Why Plastic Surgery is Popular After Weight Loss Surgery
When patients lose a large amount of weight, they need plastic surgery to reshape their body. They particularly feel the loose skin in the thighs, under the arms, around the abdomen, and in the breasts. The excess sagging skin from losing weight is uncomfortable and painful, especially during exercise. It is also a reminder of the person they used to be. Post massive weight loss patients are the number one growth area in cosmetic surgery. Thigh lift and upper arm lift have the biggest jump.
