McALLEN - A cosmetic plastic surgeon is helping Valley residents who have lost massive amounts of weight get their body back in tip top shape.
Dr. Filiberto Rodriguez is doing a post bariatric cosmetic surgery which sculpts the body skin for people who have a lot of loose, excess skin after losing large amounts of weight. Dr. Rodriguez says he knows the importance of using the latest medical knowledge and equipment to help those patients, "These patients are investing lot into, they've lost the weight, they are dedicated to a healthier lifestyle. Now they are investing a lot to get this body lift surgery, we should do our best to conceal those scars so you know they can wear the jeans they want or a cut-off shirt, they can be proud of their bodies."
Arm lifts, thigh lifts and entire body lifts are just some of the ways post bariatric surgery is done. Cornerstone Regional Hospital says while many people focus on cosmetic surgery for women, but this procedure is both for men and women.
