The Rodeo Drive Body Transformation Program
August 11, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsRodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, the only plastic surgery center on world famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, has launched a specialized program that works to not only improve people's appearance following massive weight loss, but also helps them enhance their overall lifestyle. There has been a tremendous increase in people who have lost massive amounts of weight. To help these people, one plastic surgery has launched an innovative program to help with not only body contouring but also overall lifestyle.
With Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery's Body Transformation Program, the specialized Beverly Hills plastic surgery center not only creates leaner torsos but also coordinates new wardrobes to put them into, and more.
The popularity of weight loss surgery such as gastric bypass and lap band is one reason so many people are candidates for this program, while other people lose large amounts of weight through diet and exercise.
Following large weight loss, people often are left with loose and hanging skin. In this situation, body contouring plastic surgery can offer tremendous improvements in appearance.
According to Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery's Medical Director, Dr. Lloyd Krieger, "The most common procedures we do for people following massive weight loss are tummy tuck procedures, body lifts and thigh lifts. We do these procedures for both men and women. For women we also do a large number of breast reductions and breast lift procedures."
Beyond his skill in performing the nips, tucks and lifts his patients seek, Dr. Krieger encourages them to open up to a new lifestyle to further enhance and maintain their improved body appearance and self image. Dr. Krieger has established a unique professional network to offer his patients a lifestyle design after they've had one of his noted plastic surgery procedures. These services may include shopping for a new wardrobe at nearby Rodeo Drive shops, a new hairstyle, spa treatments, and a new fitness regime.
Dr. Krieger says that plastic surgery is the first step in improving one's image. "But why stop there," he says. "I want to support my patients in prolonging and improving what I started in the operating room. This applies to everyone, not just those seeking celebrity plastic surgery."
"People come for plastic surgery not only to improve a specific element of their appearance. The underlying reason they seek plastic surgery is to feel better about themselves and improve their lifestyle. They want to fit into clothes that were always off limits to them, look good at their high school reunion, feel comfortable going out to more social events," notes Dr. Krieger. "Because of our unique location and professional relationships, we are in the position to really help these people make big improvements in their lifestyle. This is especially beneficial for people who have had dramatic changes in their appearance and self-image, which is the case following massive weight loss. It is also important for plastic surgery for men."
"We want our body contouring surgery to be the first step to permanent lifestyle enhancement,' Dr. Krieger concludes. "So after our plastic surgery we coordinate all the next steps to help people with this – by matching them with personal trainers, helping them shop for a new wardrobe or get a new hairstyle, and all of the other things that will set them on their way to really enjoying their new and improved appearance."
Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery's Body Transformation Program actively coordinates all of these services so people can get the very most out of their new bodies and lifestyles.
