FINDING A SURGEON

Recommended Posts

Hi

How do I go about finding  a plastic surgeon who has a multitude of experience with skin removal?

By the time I am ready, I will be 62. I don't know if this will be a factor. 

Thank you

Hi Grandma,

Thanks for your question.

Age is not a factor if you are healthy.  What is more important is what other medical problems you have, such as diabetes or heart disease.

To find an experienced plastic surgeon, I would first start with your bariatric surgeon.  Dr. Kim has likely worked with a few plastic surgeons in your area or sent his other patients to them, and he may have a recommendation to help you choose.  Check with family and friends who may know of someone else who has had the surgery and can recommend a good plastic surgeon.  Otherwise just consult with a few board certified plastic surgeons in your area and ask them about their experience with bariatric reconstruction and review their before and after photos to help make your decision.

Good luck!

Sincerely,

Abhay Gupta, MD, FACS.
