Image Plastic Surgery has forged a strategic alliance with the Lighter for Life Weight Loss Surgery Solutions program to help patients achieve their desired results following gastric bypass surgery.
Paramus, NJ, February 8, 2006 – Image Plastic Surgery, based in Paramus, NJ, has forged a strategic alliance with the Lighter for Life Weight Loss Surgery Solutions program to help meet the special, end-to-end needs of an increasing number of patients who wish to experience massive weight loss.
Patients lose a large amount of fat after gastric bypass surgery. This extreme reduction in fatty tissue leaves patients with unsightly folds of skin and tissue that a plastic surgeon can correct. Post-bariatric body-contouring procedures include tummy tuck, brachioplasty, face-lifts, thigh lift, or body lifts. It is important for the plastic surgeon to use specialized surgical approaches and take specific safety measures for these patients.
Through the strategic alliance between Image Plastic Surgery and Lighter for Life, both parties work to ensure that the patient understands the weight loss alternatives as well as the need for plastic surgery that comes after the excess weight is gone. They also help them to understand the inherent risks involved and what they can reasonably expect in terms of post-bariatric outcomes. The new strategic alliance will uniquely provide prospective patients with educational materials including linked websites that will answer questions about both bariatric and cosmetic surgery procedures.
