The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) released a report indicating a likely correlation between a rise in weight loss surgery and a subsequent increase in certain cosmetic procedures, CBS News reported on June 1.
Procedures like thigh lifts, tummy tucks, breast lifts, and upper arm lifts have dramatically increased in the last four years. These procedures in particular take care of excess skin that results from great weight loss. In 2014, there were 15.6 million individuals who underwent body contouring procedures. An estimated 179,000 individuals in 2013 underwent surgeries to reduce weight, and about a fourth of these people also went on to have cosmetic surgery done.
