Are there doctors that are accredited for after weightloss surgery
I live in Vancouver and have had trouble finding a surgeon that is ASPS certified and deals with multiple surgeries due to weight loss.
It is preformed in Thailand as far as I have learned. Where the doctor will do tucks on all the affected areas in one surgery i.e arm, stomach buttock and even implant too.
Any help?

Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss in Georgia  June 7, 2010 3:32 PM

I can understand your challenge. Many surgeons who perform body contouring after massive weight loss don't have the kind of team it takes to do most of the procedures at one time. I often do the complete body makeeover in one surgical session--it all depends on exactly what you need done and your overall health status.

There's no need to go all the way to Thailand and roll the dice with someone who is definitely not certified by the ABPS or a member of the ASPS.

Check out my website for some before/after photos. www.drkavali.com

Best wishes!

Been there did that. Massive weight loss surgery.  January 4, 2011 5:57 PM

After losing about 135 lbs I was left with a lot of excess skin. My breast actually indented before they hung to the short empty tube socks I called breasts. I had a completely wrinkled stomach that hung and created a small overhang flap. After much research I found Dr Raj Chowdary he is a plastic surgeon who practices out of Lehigh valley hospital. Allentown center for plastic surgery. He also Teaches plastic surgery so he knows all the cutting edge new things and what does and does not work. My pics are listed under his mommy makeovers. I am the one wearing a gold cross. Lower body lift, breast lift and implants. So happy I did it. Good luck...

Be very careful in having out of area surgery. I now have 2 patients undergoing intensive multiple reconstructions of poor Thailand cosmetic surgeries! They both paid over $25,000 and now just to correct and improve the bad results they have spent another 25,000. Just a thought. From MIAMI Dr. Darryl j. Blinski

There is no certification for that area of plastic surgery. If you plan to go out of the conuntry I recommend you to visit ISAPS.ORG an international society of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons.

surgery in Bangkok  August 3, 2013 8:52 PM

I just went with a group out of Australia with a surgeon who does this type of work. Most of us facelifts, but there was a woman there who had, her tummy and arms done and was really happy. I am a man who just had a facelift and eyes, so you can imagine I am pretty amazed with his work to hide the scars. Also they have the post surgery assistants and even a health resort for people who want to extend their holiday from what I hear. She is originally from the states and handles all the surgery worldwide for the surgeon who is just amazing in reconstructive and board certified plastic surgeon. Write her and ask her what she thinks. trina@thaisurgery.com.au Tony

There are many Doctors accredited by ASPS. Possibly it could all be done at the same time depending on your health. ASPS should be able to guide you to a surgeon in our community.
