OBESITY INCREASES COMPLICATIONS

This is another message from Dr. Robert Brueck MD, Fort Myers Plastic Surgeon, about what is happening in plastic surgery

We long suspected it. No it has been confirmed.

A recent article in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal found complication rates were 12 times more likely following breast surgery in obese patients.

The study analyzed insurance claims for 8000 women who underwent breast surgery. The number of women who filed a claim for compensation after breast surgery was 12 times greater.
