In our society talking about weight has become the new white elephant in the room. According to a recent report parents don’t even like to talk about it to their children. The politically correct politeness of not talking about it doesn’t change the fact that it is a huge problem( no pun intended) in our society. Dr. O’Toole explains to his patients that cosmetic surgery after weight loss is not only an important part of the process, it also helps patients to accept their weight loss as a positive and aesthetically beneficial accomplishment. Weight loss that is significant will almost always leave behind loose and lax skin. The skin is most likely to be evident on the face, abdomen, and chest. Dr. O’Toole will typically recommend a facelift, abdominoplasty, and a breastlift. These procedures are all cosmetic and can be performed on an outpatient basis. Dr. O’Toole and his patients will decide together which procedures should be performed first. It is unlikely that all Three procedures could be performed together in the same setting. Overwhelmingly the positive responses to these procedures are life-changing. People must first become comfortable talking about weight if they are to do anything about it. According to CBS doctors interviewed for the survey in their story agreed weight is one of the most important topics parents can discuss with their children…at any age. Especially with what has been described as an obesity epidemic among American kids. Nearly 20 percent of parents felt it was the doctor’s job to talk to their kid’s about weight whereas only 1 percent of parents thought doctors should talk to children about sex, alcohol or drugs.
