After a person loses a large amount of weight, they are often left with sagging skin and fat deposits on different parts of their body. This can be extremely frustrating, especially when someone has worked so hard to achieve their new figure.
Fortunately, if you are in this situation, cosmetic procedures are available that can help you to get the figure you desire. Body lift surgery can help to remove the excess skin and fat that is still hanging on after your weight loss.
Who Should Consider Body Lift Surgery?
The ideal candidate should be in good overall health. They need to have achieved a stable weight, as weight fluctuations will undo the results of the body lift. Similarly, the patient should not be planning to get pregnant.
The patient also needs to have developed good health habits that will help them recover from the surgery and maintain their new body. They should not drink heavily or smoke. The ideal candidate will also have realistic expectations.
What is a Body Lift?
Our body lift surgery is also called a belt lipectomy. Many patients experience a lot of weight loss around the thighs, hips and buttocks, so they end up with a lot of loose skin in these areas. A body lift works to address this. Our surgeon can also reshape the buttocks while removing the excess skin.
The tummy area, back and groin can also be addressed with our body lift. Our talented surgeon can operate on almost anything that has loose skin and fat deposits, and your procedure will be tailored to meet your unique needs.
During a typical body lift surgery, the surgeon will remove excess fat and tissue. He can repair any torn or damaged abdominal muscles. The surgeon can then pull the skin taut and remove the excess.
The recovery time varies depending on the individual and the procedure. Some patients will take longer to recover if they had more parts of the body worked on. We will be sure to provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for yourself during your recovery.
