Yes you come under Obese category with BMI 30. The recommendations of liposuction or Gastric by pass surgery are at BMI 34 or with BMI 32 with atleast two complications of Obesity like Arthritis, Sleep apnoea etc. You have to consult the doctor and take his/her advice. The cost for this procedure depends upon the type of hospital you choose and the bariatric surgeon. We can help you in arranging an appointment with a Bariatric surgeon. Right now our recommendations would be Dietary regulation, Graded exercises and Behavioural modifications with realistic goals to be set.

Hi I have an old scar on my forehead that has recently developed A Ridge or bump that follows the whole length of the scar. It seems numb to the touch, but slightly painful when pressure is applied. This scar is 45 years old, and I just recently got over a serious skin infection on my right ear which was very severe should I just see a dermatologist or should I see my primary care physician?

Hi I am 47 years old and have what I am now assuming is a nasal crease from having some pretty severe allergies for all of my adult life, my allergies are mostly under control but the crease is prominent now and white. I work outside and use sunscreen but still am exposed to tanning rays and while my skin darkens the line is more white than ever, not to mention I have Native American blood so it s very pronounced all year. Is there a cream that would diminish the crease? I m even open to plastic surgery procedures if that would be an option, last ditch effort kind of option. Any suggestions?
