Plastic Surgeon Q&A Panel & Free Consults

Uncovering You, Plastic Surgery After WLS! 

We're excited to announce the Plastic Surgeon Q&A Panel: Uncovering You, Plastic Surgery After WLS at the 2017 ObesityHelp National Conference in Long Beach, California! This session is on Friday, October 27, 2017, from 4:00 pm – 4:50 pm.

If you have excess skin since losing weight, then you might be struggling with daily hygiene, skin irritations, and infections. You might also have difficulties with participating in activities that you love or finding clothes to fit right. Those problems might also be affecting your self-confidence!

If any of these are concerns of yours, then reconstructive plastic surgery might be an option that you want to explore. We've put together a panel of Plastic Surgeons that specialize in post-bariatric reconstructive surgery. During this session, you can ask your Plastic Surgery after WLS questions directly to Dr. Cardenas, Dr. Castillo, Dr. Domanskis, or Dr. Katzen.

You Can Also Sign Up for a Free Plastic Surgery Consultation!

While you're at #OH2017, you can also have one-on-one time with a Plastic Surgeon right at the conference through a free consultation. The consultations are held in a private room where you can openly discuss your needs and concerns regarding excess skin.

If you'd like to schedule a consultation, make sure you sign-up right away because the appointments fill up fast and there are a limited number of consults available. You may sign-up for a consultation with more than one surgeon.
