You have successfully lost lot of weight, which should make you feel ecstatic. But now you notice some unsightly transformations in your body as a consequence of your weight loss. Do you see ripples and wrinkles and yards of loose skin all over your body? For some, this effect is not extreme, but for others, it could be as devastating as being overweight itself. In these cases, surgery could be the best option.
You might think that cosmetic surgery only applies only to face lifts and nose lifts. But plastic surgeons have come up with other procedures to totally transform the body, including those that would solve the problems of people who have lost pounds and pounds of weight. Abdominoplasty, which is also known as tummy tuck is a procedure that can be considered wherein the sagging skin is taken out and stretched taut in the stomach area.
People who have shed off a lot of pounds end with a large amount of skin hanging loose over their stomach. With abdominoplasty, the loose skin will be removed, thus the skin will be stretched giving it the appearance of a smooth, very trimmed belly.
Women who have lost a lot of weight, not only loses weight in their fat-prone areas like the buttocks, thighs and belly, but also in the breasts. Thus, when the fats are lost in the breasts, the consequence is a sagging breast which can be solved by undergoing a breast lift. The breast lift can give a new look to a woman’s breast, making it more attractive. Loose skin will be removed and tightened within the breast area. Thus the nipple will have to be moved to the right position and while the surgeon is at it, he/she might as well alter the breast “drapes” for a younger and genuine appearance.
Another kind of cosmetic surgery that has gained popularity is the liposuction. Liposuction removes the fats stored under the skin by siphoning the fat through small incisions using a cannula. This procedure can be used to finally remove the fat from specific areas that cannot be dissolved by exercise or diets. However, we are not recommending this procedure as a short cut to losing large quantities of fat on the entire body.
Employing cosmetic surgery can be the final act to complete the entire process of losing weight and eliminating the tell-tale signs of that phase in the patient’s life. Now with the patients looking great again, they will be able to feel good about themselves, regain their self-confidence and live fuller normal lives.

Surviving the Children's Home Growth Tests ..M348
Image by theirhistory The history of this photograph, I was part of The Child Growth Tests that were done by J. M. Tanner & R. H. Whitehouse for the Institute of Child Health, and funded by the Ministry of Health. These were held in a building at the National Children's Home, Harpenden, Herts. During the medical tests held every three months, as part of the tests we had four full length photographs taken without any clothes on from front, back and sides to show our growth over the years. www.flickr.com/photos/22326055@N06/sets/72157629924611474/ If you had been a good child, you were sometimes allowed a photograph to keep, had they not wanted to embarrass us by giving us a photo of us in the nude, it would have been easy for the staff to have just taken one when we had changed back into our plastic pants for other parts of the test, but we were allowed to return after all the tests had been done once we were fully dressed to have the extra photo taken. This photo does not depict a flasher in the making, I was trying to mimic the cloak in the Adam Adamnt TV series. If I had not worn my Duffel coat but chosen my mackintosh, it might have looked more like a cape. Originally the photograph was a full length pose, but early on the lower leg and feet section was removed by me on two of my photographs taken at different times, one for showing some cane marks from a teacher, the other for showing me wearing girls' tall shiny black wellingtons. C.1966 ----------------------------------------------------- For many of us when we left the children's home, we took little from our time in care with us. Often we were given a new set of clothes plus some play clothes to take away in our case. We were allowed to take any of our personal possessions, but often space and time prevented many of our larger possessions leaving with us (I left my bike). For some it was a time in our lives that we decided on a clear out, the fewer items we had of our time in care the better. Often many of the photographs of our time were not brought with us, a few single photographs we might take, but groups and the like were often thrown out, having to explain to new friends at a later time that these were photos of others who were in care with you might be difficult. Some photos might get trimmed down to remove other children or buildings, and some photos were cropped to remove items of clothing. Up to the 1960s boys wore a rather institutional uniform for play and best, many of these surviving photos have been trimmed down to just head and shoulders. www.flickr.com/photos/22326055@N06/sets/72157606466440071/ Those of us who did take away a few photos from our time in care are lucky, many of our friends have nothing from their childhood. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NCH Data from our 6 monthly checks in our own hospital by the Nursing Sister and Houseparent. Age 9yrs 10months General condition: Good Height: 4ft7in. Weight 5st 0lbs. (with minor school clothing). Philip is inclined to be jealous and vocally aggressive, particularly with younger members of the group. His relationship with all, including the staff, is very loose at present. There is a need to keep control of his behavior. He is slightly impertinent, yet, given the opportunity, he can be helpful and enjoys showing the younger children how to do things. ------------------------------------------------------------------- The data obtained from our medical tests was used as the bench mark for judging the heights, weights and development of British children for many years. In later years it was thought that possibly the subjects that were chosen as the test data might not fully represent the ordinary British child. It was felt that there might be some slight delay in our development due to physically been in a Children's Home, made some data slightly out of date. In the mid 1960s we were living on a diet and experiencing many events that a child in the 1940's or 1950's might have endured. By the mid 1990s children had physically changed. The diet of a child at the end of the 20th century was totally different to that of the child in a Children's Home in the mid 1960s. Education and social matters were totally different between these two groups. For children that had been in care for most of their lives puberty might occur at a slightly later age. Other factors as to racial and social background could easily show marked differences between the two groups. A new data set has now been devised to replace the original Tanner and Whitehouse charts. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- However all the other photos of us were done in the nude. Most it seem have now been destroyed. Many of us can breath a sigh of relief. see. www.theirhistory.co.uk/70001/info.php?p=7&pno=0 Every possible part of a child growing up was recorded in some form, from what we ate, how often we wet the bed, how we developed and a range of other findings that would be of use to child carers - we were a captive audience. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our regular visits for the Growth Study Tests every three months were welcomed by most of us. An entire morning off school was something of a treat. Part of the old school at Highfield was used for our tests. Since the school had closed down, two thirds of the building was now used as a main hall for various group meetings, the reaming third of the hall had been turned into the specialist area for our medical tests. The medical part of the hall was only use for these tests and was closed off when not in use. Only about 15% of the children at our Home were involved with the tests. In any one session there were normally only about 8 to 10 to be seen at any one time, boys were seen separately from girls, so there was no problem in entering the hall and going into a side area to take our clothes off, we were allowed to be in our waterproof pants for some of the tests. The various tests were on weight, height, puberty development, bone structure. Our feet were also checked to see how we stood, for us it was quite an interesting part of the test as the device used produced a purple print of our foot print. As most were more complicated than ordinary visits to a doctor, as information was to be gathered over several years, time was spent in measuring and recording the data in detail. We could be embarrassed when the staff touched certain parts of our body during the tests when we were without our underpants, on occasions a few of us experienced erections. With the others occupied with their own part of the test, it was generally only the staff that witnessed our embarrassment. At our young age, we did not understand why things like this should happen. If this had been in front of the Sisters or a Houseparent we could have expected some form of punishment; the medical staff took little notice of us. Another part of our tests were photographs done without any clothes on, with only doctors and no NCH staff around, there was not really any embarrassment to be seen like this. We were positioned on a turntable in one area of the hall, with a camera at a distance away. Four photographs were then taken full length of us standing perfectly still with our hands at our sides from front, back and each side. To allow accuracy and that we did not move our body positions between each shot, the turntable moved in a fixed quarter turn for each photograph. The other test was a series of x-rays, this was done alone in a more enclosed area of the hall as our final test. We would be provided with a pair of plastic pants to put on. ("The gonads are protected throughout by special leaded material made into plastic pants for boys. The dose of X-rays reaching the gonads is too small to be measurable under these condition."). To children of six or seven, the only reason in our minds why you would be provided with such a garment was that you might wet yourself. At our ages we could understand little about the complexes of x-rays, and even if we were older learning that x-rays could be dangerous to certain parts of the body, might have introduced even more fear. The x-ray session seemed to take the longest part of the tests, positioning the machine to take the x-rays of our hand & wrist, jaw, head, calf, thigh, arm, chest. The boring part of these x-rays, was standing still once positioned over the machine, whilst the doctor went away to another area. For a young child on their first session, the plastic pants hid any accident that happened during the x-rays, strong elastic in the leg area, kept this matter secret from the doctor, allowing your return to the dressing area to put your clothes back on and to try and hide the event. In future sessions you would know not to be afraid, when it came to putting the plastic pants on ready for your x-ray session, you might find they were already slightly damp. Having time off school, made up for any discomfort and embarrassment we might go through. As a reward, once we had dressed back into our school clothes, if there was time available, we could be rewarded with our own photograph, of us standing on the turntable. On occasions if you were one of the last to be seen, it was thought that if you returned to school late you might miss your lunch; you were allowed to have the remaining afternoon off school. Those of us that had the dislike of afternoon games and PE lessons, made sure we were always the last ones to be seen during our test sessions.
