Newport Beach, CA, December 9, 2016 (Newswire.com) - This holiday season, millions of people will receive presents designed to help them look and feel their best. Joining in the holiday cheer, the American Society of Bariatric Plastic Surgeons (ASBPS) is offering several unique gifts that provide these benefits to individuals who have experienced significant weight loss following intense dieting or bariatric surgery.
Going one better than department stores, ASBPS, whose members are devoted to help treat patients after massive weight loss, has created its own gift card. The unique stocking stuffer is redeemable for a wide range of cosmetic procedures, and is available in both $1,000.00 and $5,000.00 denominations. Accepted by all surgeon members of ASBPS, the card offers its recipient both an opportunity for exceptional health care and a wide range of choices.
An ASBPS gift card is like a ticket that allows a person to complete the journey that began with bariatric surgery.

Dr. Edward Domanskis, President of ASBPS, whose members are all certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, believes the novel gifts are very apropos for the times. “The number of cosmetic body contouring procedures has increased exponentially since a steadily rising number of people are electing to undergo post-bariatric treatments,” he says. There were about 150,000 Bariatric procedures performed according to the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
What is especially notable about the cards is that they allow individuals to receive medical treatment they may not otherwise get. The massive weight loss that follows bariatric surgery or intense dieting invariably results in large areas of sagging skin. Not only can this condition be detrimental to one’s self-esteem, it can lead to potential health problems such as infection.
Unfortunately, insurance companies limit their coverage to bariatric surgeries. “An ASBPS gift card is like a ticket that allows a person to complete the journey that began with bariatric surgery,” adds Dr. Domanskis.
A leading proponent of patient education, ASBPS also offers a wide selection of DVD’s covering a broad range of cosmetic procedures including Body Contouring and Facial and Breast Surgery. Further information about both and to order the DVD’s and the gift cards is available on the ASBPS website at www.asbps.org.
