If you have lost significant weight and are faced with sagging skin throughout the body, you may still find yourself self-conscious and unable to flaunt your new body. Being self-conscious about this excess skin can be troublesome. Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon in the Huntington Station, NY area who is pleased to offer specific body procedures to help in firming these trouble areas for better contours and appearance. This can be achieved with body lift surgery.
What Is the Body Lift Procedure?
A body lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the shape and contour of the body. It typically involves surgically removing excess skin, fat, and tissue from areas of the body that have been affected by massive weight loss or aging. The goal is to create smoother, firmer contours for a more attractive appearance.
Where Can a Body Lift Be Performed?
During a body lift, several specific areas may be treated during the same surgical procedure. This reduces overall recovery time and allows for a single surgery instead of multiple. Many patients will focus on areas such as the upper arms, midsection, and thighs to firm the body after losing weight from extensive exercise or special stomach surgeries.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Body Lift Procedure?
A body lift procedure is an ideal solution for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss, either through bariatric surgery or traditional diet and exercise methods. You should be evaluated by a physician to determine if you are healthy enough for surgery and if the desired results can be achieved with a body lift procedure. Generally speaking, good candidates for this procedure will have stable body weight and no active medical conditions that could interfere with their ability to heal from the surgery. Additionally, candidates should display realistic expectations of the outcome and demonstrate healthy lifestyle habits such as proper nutrition, exercise, and stress management.
