Obesity and plastic surgery

In 2015, the research data demonstrated that obesity negatively affects the recovery period after plastic surgery.

The study was to monitor patients who use liposuction or abdominoplasty for weight loss. The researchers concluded that more than 7% of obese patients have had some postoperative complications within 1 month after the plastic surgery. Herewith, more than 3% of obese people required hospitalization due to complications.

Despite the high risks of complications, hundreds of thousands of obese people annually choose namely surgery for weight loss. The advantage of surgery over pharmacotherapy and non-pharmacological treatment of obesity is that surgery helps to get a slender figure in just one or a few days.

• To get a perfect figure by means of prescription diet pills, from 4 up to 12 weeks is required.
• For a significant weight loss by means of over-the-counter diet pills, approximately half a year is required.
• When only diet therapy and regular physical loads are used for weight loss, the duration of weight loss program may reach a few years.

Surgery is a highly effective, but very expensive way of weight loss. Millions of obese people cannot pay surgeon services, so they use RX or OTC diet pills for weight loss.

Obesity and plastic surgeryOne of the best RX diet pills in 2015 can be called Phentermine. In the USA, Phentermine is the most popular drug for weight loss. Despite the fact that the number of overweight and obese Americans increases each year, the sales of Phentermine are gradually reduced in the USA.

The reason for lower demand for Phentermine in the USA is that the FDA has approved several new drugs for the obesity treatment for the last few years.

In 2015, the US suppliers of Phentermine have to compete with the suppliers of new anti-obesity drugs, such as Belviq and Qsymia. The manufacturers of new diet pills claim that their weight loss products are safer than Phentermine pills.

However, given the fact that Qsymia and Belviq are sold just a few years, their long-term effects are insufficiently studied. Therefore, many American doctors continue to prescribe to their patients well-studied Phentermine-containing weight loss products.
