Online PR News – 23-January-2010 – – Board certified Dr. Jay Calvert, a renowned Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon, performs a successful body lift operation for Jackie Guerra, a patient who had just undergone massive weight loss and was then faced with problems about her excess skin.
Dr. Jay Calvert, MD, FACS, performed a body lift operation on celebrity Jackie Guerra who appeared as a guest at the Tyra Banks show. The celebrity decided to proceed with the operation after a series of consultations with Dr. Calvert. The cosmetic surgeon assured her that her surgery would be a success prompting her to gain confidence in the operation.
Jackie was suffering from obesity, and after several years of fighting against her condition, she was able to overcome it. She underwent a gastric bypass surgery to aid her in achieving her goal. The result was a success, however, due to her massive weight loss, she suffered from yet another problem, her excess skin. The massive weight loss caused most of her skin to not retract, especially on her arms, so they stayed loose and hanging, and she had to cover them up with her clothes.
She consulted with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Calvert, who was eager to do a body lift operation on her. He provided Jackie with all the information necessary in order for her body lift to be a total success. He also made the patient understand why it is important to prepare for surgery. In addition, Dr. Calvert made Jackie stop smoking and got her on a workout regiment in order to oxygenate her body. The renowned plastic surgeon briefed the patient thoroughly, so that she will be able to understand the process that she may have to go through during and after the operation.
After several preparations and when Dr. Calvert was convinced that Jackie was ready, he finally operated on her. He not only performed surgery on her arms but also on her side and all around her waist as well. Dr. Calvert said that he was able to remove one square yard or nine feet of skin off of Jackie’s entire body. At the Tyra Banks’ TV show, he supplied a piece of fabric in order to describe how much skin he took off. Jackie Guerra was pleased with the result of her operation but there is still another surgery that needs to be done which will focus on removing the extra skin on her thighs. Dr. Calvert explained that it was a 12-hour surgery and it couldn’t be done at the same time.
“Every person has their own vision of beauty,” explained Dr. Calvert. “My goal is to develop a treatment plan designed to help [individuals] achieve their aesthetic goals safely and effectively,” he added.
Dr. Calvert also performs other types of cosmetic surgery including rhinoplasty, breast augmentation and face-lifts. He completed his medical degree at the Cornell University Medical College in New York and is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery Dr. Calvert is now based in Los Angeles, California and has two offices in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills where he consults with new patients. http://www.drcalvert.com
