Thank you for sharing. Weight loss procedures are not handled by plastic surgeons, but rather the bariatric surgeons. They are general surgery trained and can offer the right procedures for weight loss. Many patients see plastic surgeons after losing weight in order to address loose and excess skin. Hope this helps. Best wishes!
