First detrmine if you are healthy enough bto have surgery. Seek out a primary care practioner in your community & obtain clearance for general anesthesia. Second, rank the ares of your body from 1 on with 1 being the area of greatest concern. Lastly, consider an ASPS member in your area for an evaluation. They should be able to give you approximate costs for corrections of your concerns. Best,

You would have to be evaluated in person to determine what procedures would be right for you. Each doctor may charge different fees and it may also depend upon the location in the country. Best of luck!

Congrats on the weight loss! Sounds like it’s time to start contouring. Prices vary based on your location and which procedures are done together. Many patients split up some of these procedures to ease their recovery. See a board certified plastic surgeon for more information.

Dear Tammy,

Hello and thank you for your excellent question. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable. You can start by searching this website for a surgeon in your area that specializes in these procedures. Be sure to have all of your questions answered during a face-to-face meeting with your surgeon, and review before and after pictures of similar patients whom have had this procedure. If you have any questions, call our office for assistance. Good luck!

Thank you for sharing your question and congratulations on your weight loss! If you are otherwise healthy for surgery there are multiple treatment options available to help contour your figure. Though a whole body can not be done at a single setting, find a surgeon with whom you enjoy working and who can provide you with a staged plan to address your areas of concern. Hope this helps.

I am President of the American Society of Bariatric Plastic Surgeons and my specialty is helping patients that have lost much weight. There are many types of procedures that you could have like tummy tuck, breast lift. I normally consult with patients in one of my offices but if not convenient, then through SKYPE/FACETIME/Whats up. Then I could give you an estimate of what could be done for how much. I try and provide the best prices to help the patients complete their journey. I also can combine procedures and sometimes we have media inquiries to help the patient with costs.
