Our May 2017 Newsletter

We are thrilled to announce that we have been named The Times’ 2017 Best of the Region: Best Cosmetic Surgery Center! For four consecutive years now, we’ve been given this incredible honor because of your votes! Thank you again for your continued support – we are truly grateful.

When a patient visits our practice for a liposuction or tummy tuck consult, the topic of weight is quickly brought to the forefront of the conversation; more specifically, if the patient’s weight is in a healthy range for the desired treatment.

While body contouring options may seem largely dependent on this factor, the truth is, a healthy lifestyle (including a healthy weight) is an important consideration for every procedure.

Regardless of treatment area, the associated risks are amplified when the patient’s Body Mass Index (or BMI) is outside the healthy range, typically above 30. In general, the higher the BMI, the higher the risk of complication.

Because we seek to minimize any associated risks, we pay special attention to the patient’s current state of health, not just the results to come. If Dr. Galante feels that delaying a procedure is in the best interest of the patient, he will recommend accordingly. Above all, patient safety is our highest priority.

Not sure if you are in the healthy BMI range for your height and weight? Get calculating! It’s important to note that a patient who maintains a healthy weight and lifestyle will typically enjoy a faster recovery and better results. Of course, there are many other important factors that come into play when determining if you are a good candidate for a procedure.

That’s where a consultation comes in. Contact us today to schedule yours!
