Body Contouring & Gastric Bypass Surgery

So, by now I think everybody has heard about gastric bypass surgery, sometimes known as stomach stapling, Al Roker had it, same with Carnie Wilson (who actually did it live online), and thousands of other people around the country.

It's the new miraculous surgery that can help morbidly obese people lose hundreds of pounds of fat, but not loose skin...

People are flocking to surgeons, to have their stomach shrunk to the size of an almond, so they can lose 200, 300 pounds and go back to regain a normal life. But what they don't realize is that once they lose all the weight, they are left with lots of hanging loose skin everywhere, from their arms, to their waists and legs, sometimes even on their faces.

So they have to go to a plastic surgeon this time to have all that removed, a procedure that can cost up to $40,000 and can take 3 to 5 surgeries to be fully complete. A procedure called body contouring or body lift, gaining more and more popularity each year.

Foot Facelifts?

Ok, so one of the staff writers here at sent me a new article he just wrote about "Foot Facelifts"!!!! Can you believe that?
I know I'm obsessed with shoes and everything but for some women to actually put themselves through all that pain to wear pretty shoes just sounded crazy to me!
They get their toes shorten or straighten them out.

Well, thats really all I have for today, if you would like to read the article, just click on the headline:

Monday's Cosmetic Surgery News

Ok, so it's monday...I had just finished typing my post for today and something happened to my computer and I lost everything I had typed! :( Anyways, today I just wanted to mention 2 headlines that came to my mind related to cosmetic surgery and that I wanted to share with everybody reading this blog.

First of all, Cosmetic Surgery Vacations. Can you believe there are tons of women from the US now traveling to SouthEast Asia and Central America to get plastic surgery done? They are going for facelifts, breast implants and nose jobs but some of them are coming back with more than they wanted, such as infections and defective procedures. Be careful! That's why at Cosmetic we make sure to provide you with the information you need to make a smart decision.

And last but not least, Plastic Surgery before the Wedding. More and more women and their moms are going in for nips and tucks as soon as they find out they are getting married. Surgeons in Northern California have noticed a 300% increase in this kind of patients. I read one about this girl that went in for a rhinoplasty and another one about the mom that went in for a facelift. I guess you want to make sure you look good when all the attention is focused on you, right?

Ok, that's it for today!
