Body lift

A common first line of attack for patients who have lost weight is a body lift procedure.  Most plastic surgeons refer to a body lift as a circumferential body lift = belt lipectomy.  This procedure is essentially 3 procedures in one: extended tummy tuck + waist/lateral thigh lift + buttock lift (with the option of buttock augmentation).    A physical exam would be needed to make any recommendations.  Please visit with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to learn more about your options.

Options for Surgery with Poor Credit

    Some plastic surgery offices can put you through with other finance companies or they may offer in house financing.  You will have to call the offices to see if they have other options.  I have other options at my office, but I am far away.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

I think you might do well to talk with a finance counselor. I suspect you could repair your credit in a very few years. You may also find a surgeon who will use a layaway plan where you pay what you can afford each month and once all payments are complete you can do the procedure.
