is there a way to volunteer or get and recieve free cosmetic surgery?I was disabled 20yrs. ago I can function and look healthy;but have thyroid issues and am unable to exercise vigorously. I need/would like a complete body makeover. I am especially interested in liposuction and tummy tuck,breast lift, and mini face lift. I would be happy to recieve even one procedure and have no problem helping out new surgeons with b4 and after pics,etc,... Is there a way to find these in my area? I am turning 40 this year and my self image is the lowest it's ever been I believe these would benifit me greatly ;but have low (disability) income.Quite frankly I'm beginning to feel desperate.

multiple diets ie;Atkins,the Zone,6 week body makeover,the faat loss factor,and many more including puttig body in ketogenic state.these greatly improved my eating habits but no real or long lasting physical effects.Exerecising ie; walking, pilatiates,swimming.Anything that would work the muscles hopefully up my cardio give me a workout w/out any additional pain.My doctors are talking about a gastric bypass sleeve.Even w/this I feel surgery would really help me to optain optimal results and m
Good Evening....Free cosmetic surgery is really unlikely. You might consider inquiring at the closest university hospital which has a plastic surgery residency . They all have resident clinics inwhich cosmetic surgery is performed at a markedly reduced rate. There are , of course charges for the use of the hospital operating room etc. You are in an unfortunate situation, but it is worth checking out a university program.
I should also mention that if you suffer from a extreme weight problem, then having surgery may not be in your best interest..Simply put...the less you weigh at the time of surgery, the better the result. It is clear that you have put in your best effort, but still have a weight problem. If you are otherwise medically healthy, a gastric by-pass/sleeve may be the appropriate next step....before any plastic surgery.
Thank you for your question. Your request for volunteering to obtain free plastic surgery is just not possible. I know of no plastic surgeon that would get involved with that. Many plastic surgeons have payment plans, even at a university where they have plastic surgeons in training. But, it may be worth it for you to have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon just to see if you are a candidate for plastic surgery. Many plastic surgeons do not charge for an initial consultation. It is also very important to be at your ideal weight before undergoing any plastic surgery. I am sorry if this is not the answer you were hoping for.
