DR. MOYA TO SPEAK AT THE LARGEST WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY PATIENT GATHERING IN THE U.S.
Alexander P. Moya MD has been invited to present again this year at The Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America’s “Making a Difference” meeting. The 8th annual WLSFA meeting will take place in San Antonio at the Marriott Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas, June 1-3. Formed by and for the WLS community, its main mission is centered on ending obesity by empowering people to move from surviving to thriving through medical treatments including surgery, education and support. The WLSFA is the only nonprofit organization in the U.S. funding grants for bariatric surgery and for reconstructive surgery after bariatric surgery.

As a returning invited speaker and silver sponsor of the event, Dr. Moya will speak about plastic surgery after weight loss. His expertise has been widely recognized by numerous medical magazines and professional journals, and Dr. Moya is the recipient of many invitations to speak at national and international professional society meetings.
Dr. Moya created his own procedure, the Corset Body Lift®, in 2006 to better address the needs of his patients and offer them a life-changing abdominal and waistline contouring procedure. The Corset Body Lift® not only targets and reshapes the lower abdomen, but also the upper abdomen, the lower chest, and the upper and lower back, enhancing the entire waistline and figure, regardless of the patient’s overall size or amount of excess skin. For over 12 years, Dr. Moya has been performing, improving upon, and customizing this procedure for each individual patient. He brings a keen sensitivity to the needs and desires of weight loss surgery patients who have achieved their weight loss goals but have not achieved their dream. 
Weight loss patients can take advantage of the opportunity to meet privately with Dr. Moya during the “Make a Difference” event in San Antonio by scheduling a consultation.

DR. MOYA INVITED TO PRESENT AT THE ASAPS AESTHETIC MEETING 2018

Alexander P. Moya, MD has once again been invited to present at The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) Aesthetic Meeting 2018 in New York City. This annual meeting offers opportunities for learning about innovative technologies and groundbreaking advances, allows for continuing education, and grants members the opportunity to engage with those equally passionate about their profession. ASAPS membership requires a plastic surgeon to regularly attend continuing medical education courses, perform a specified amount of aesthetic plastic surgery procedures, and to adhere to a code of ethics. In addition, all ASAPS members are required to perform surgery in accredited surgical facilities.

Dr. Moya’s course entitled “The Corset Body Lift: The Art of Waistline Shaping in the Massive Weight Loss Patient” will focus on this incredible procedure created by Dr. Moya for his weight loss patients in 2006 which provides a beautifully-contoured and sculpted waistline.

Course description: The Corset Body Lift (Corset Trunkplasty) is a comprehensive approach to trunk contouring following massive weight loss with particular attention to creating an aesthetically pleasing (hourglass) waistline.  The procedure was developed as a single-stage, single-position technique to address the multi-dimensional skin redundancy (with or without complex skin rolls) routinely found in patients who have lost significant weight.  In order to maximize body shape in these patients, excess skin needs to be removed in more than one direction (vertical and horizontal), which can be easily performed by utilizing a simple tailor-tacking marking technique and direct closure of wounds without undermining.

Dr. Moya has had the privilege of teaching his surgical techniques to his colleagues as an invited speaker, panelist, and course instructor at many plastic surgery symposiums over the years, and enjoys sharing not only his knowledge but his enthusiasm for helping his patients.

DR. MOYA INVITED TO THE PLASTIC SURGERY 2017 MEETING AS A MAJOR WEIGHT LOSS PANELIST

 

Alexander P. Moya, MD has been invited to Plastic Surgery The Meeting 2017 (the American Society of Plastic Surgeons® annual meeting) as a panelist for a continuing medical education session on major weight loss surgery, titled Major Weight Loss Patient: An A-Z Deep-Dive. Member surgeons of the ASPS will have the opportunity to gain insights into treatments for patients undergoing body contouring surgery after weight loss from experts like Dr. Moya and his fellow panelists during the three-hour session.

From the ASPS: “This session will focus on innovative truncal reshaping procedures after major massive weight loss. It will provide insight into different approaches for similar problems. It will encompass all major areas of the trunk including extremity, breast, and buttocks. Emphasis will be on patient selection, techniques, pitfalls, suboptimal results, and patient safety.”

Dr. Moya has had the privilege of presenting at numerous plastic surgery symposiums over the years, focusing his attention primarily on The Corset Body Lift®. Created for his weight loss patients in 2006, The Corset Body Lift® is a life-changing abdominal and waistline contouring procedure. Unlike other body contouring procedures that direct their focus on the lower abdomen, The Corset Body Lift® targets and reshapes the entire abdomen (above and below the belly button). It also enhances the waistline by directly addressing loose skin below the breasts/chest (including “bra-line” skin along the sides and back) as well as the hips. Dr. Moya’s trademarked procedure can be customized for each patient to provide a beautiful hourglass silhouette in women and full-length tapered torso in men.

CORSET BODY LIFT® NOW A REGISTERED TRADEMARK
Moya Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery is proud to announce the successful trademarking of The Corset Body Lift® in March 2017. Dr. Moya had created the Corset Body Lift, an abdominal and waistline contouring procedure for his weight loss patients, more than 10 years ago. At that time, after having been in practice for several years, he realized that the abdominal contouring techniques he had been trained in (specifically, tummy tucks and lower body lifts) did not seem to provide the most ideal results for his weight loss patients, since they focused mostly on the lower abdominal area. The Corset Body Lift, however, not only targets and reshapes the lower abdomen, but also the upper abdomen, the lower chest, and the upper and lower back, enhancing the entire waistline and figure, regardless of the patient’s overall size or amount of excess skin. He states “I have spent many hours not only performing the procedure (hundreds of times) but improving upon it and customizing it for each patient.”

The results of the Corset Body Lift were quickly noticed by many, including other weight loss specialists (bariatric and fellow plastic surgeons). By invitation, he has presented this procedure at many prestigious professional society meetings, both national and international, including the ASPS and ASAPS. As a consultant for Ethicon, Inc. (part of the Johnson & Johnson family), he has instructed other surgeons across the U.S. on this procedure as well. The Corset Body Lift® has also been featured several times on a local ABC television station, as well as in numerous medical magazines and professional journals (Smart Beauty Guide, Plastic Surgery Practice, Cosmetic Surgery Times, and more).  He states “I felt that trademarking the Corset Body Lift® would create even more awareness, and even potentially protect patients, since they could be more confident that they were choosing the right procedure, one that would provide them with the results  they deserve.”

“GAME CHANGER”: CORSET BODY LIFT® HIGHLIGHTED

Blogger Melissa Chapman offers relationship advice and receives many letters from readers asking for her expertise. As recounted in a post on Smart Beauty Guide, Chapman shares the story of one such letter writer who had recently lost a dramatic amount of weight and was dealing with the embarrassment of extra skin. Perhaps previously unaware of the challenges that face people after major weight loss, Chapman investigated various treatments and found the Corset Body Lift®.

Apparently, most patients who undergo massive weight loss end up having to contend with the extra skin – yet another hurdle they need to face when it comes to feeling comfortable in their new bodies. And while this removal can be done in a myriad of different ways, her letter inspired me to do some research and in doing so I came upon a relatively new procedure called The Corset Body Lift which not only removes the excess skin post weight loss, but also contours the body. According, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alexander P. Moya, The Corset Body Lift is a single-stage procedure that comprehensively addresses multi-dimensional skin redundancy of the abdomen and waistline. – Melissa Chapman,
