RENO, Nev. (CBS 5) – Many people view surgeons as all-too anxious to cut – and reap the large fees that go with performing surgeries, but Reno plastic surgeon Charles Virden takes a different approach, especially in regard to obesity.

For Virden, liposuction is often the least desirable alternative. He’d prefer patients adopt a Paleo lifestyle, changing diet and health routine to lose weight.

“I think of obesity as a bigger problem than just having to have fat sucked out of you,” explained Virden.

The Paleo Diet worked for Stacy Cunningham, a hotel manager in Reno who struggled with her weight for years.

“I hadn’t been under 200 pounds since giving birth to my daughter 14 years ago,” said Cunningham.

Once she “went Paleo,” Cunningham lost 55 pounds over a period of six months. She also realized that “Paleo wasn’t just a diet, it was a lifestyle change.”

She worked with lifestyle coach Sandra Bledsoe of Renovation Medical Spa, who said people can take control of their own fight against obesity.
