Weight Loss :: Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss

With the problem of obesity approaching epidemic proportions, an increasing number of patients who have had bariatric surgery are now turning to plastic surgeons for body contouring to remove excess skin remaining after massive weight loss. Serving the informational needs of these surgeons, Quality Medical Publishing (QMP) is pleased to announce the publication of Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss, edited by Al S. Aly, MD, FACS, a leading expert on the topic.

This book, the first of its kind, serves as an essential resource to the surgeons performing these procedures. It covers body contouring procedures in each anatomic area. Each chapter provides information on indications and contraindications, patient evaluation, planning, staging of procedures, operative technique, postoperative care, tips and tricks, and problems and complications. With more than 400 pages and 700 full-color illustrations, this major work is accompanied by two DVDs with surgical video: one on upper body lift and one on belt lipectomy.

“The field of plastic surgery after massive weight loss is a new frontier in plastic surgery,” Dr. Aly said. “The purpose of Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss is to acquaint the reader with the presentation, evaluation, and surgical treatment of the massive-weight-loss patient.”
