There has long been a perception that Californians are thin and healthy. The truth is the perception is quickly turning into a myth. Outside of the television and movie industries the real world has continued to put on weight. Californians are no longer the exception. Those patients that are able to beat the battle of the bulge and keep the weight off are often left with unsightly loose skin. Dr. O’Toole explains to his patients that the loose skin can be removed surgically; however, patients should be prepared for multiple procedures if their desire is to have the most aesthetically pleasing body. They will most likely be candidates for thighplasty, brachioplasty, and abdominoplasty. Dr. O’Toole will customize each recommendation for his patients with the goal of providing the best results that are closest to meeting his patients expectations. California now has a population that is growing in pounds. According to CBS Los Angeles new study suggests the Golden State could be losing its figure.
The state is still among U.S. leaders in fighting obesity, according to an annual report released Friday by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which shows California is ranked 40th in obesity rates.
Mississippi maintains its title as the nation’s most overweight state with an adult obesity rate of 34.4 percent, while Colorado ranks as the least obese with a 19.8 percent obesity rate.
California posted a modest 24.8 percent, placing it among the top 10 states when it comes to watching its waistline.
But despite the state’s respectable showing, Rich Hamburg, Deputy Director of The Trust for America’s Health told KNX 1070 you have to look beyond the percentages and concentrate on the raw data.
