Body Lift After Massive Weight Loss
If you have lost 70, 80 or hundreds of pounds, congratulations! It is difficult to make a major change to improve your health and physical appearance, but it can be worth the effort. While fat loss may shrink your body, unfortunately, it does not always shrink the skin. Many of those who have achieved significant weight loss through diet, exercise or bariatric surgery can be left with extensive excess and loose skin. A solution is a body lift surgery, which can address several areas around the mid-section. Dr. John Anastasatos offers a body lift after massive weight loss at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.
What Is a Body Lift?
With extensive weight loss, there is often a large amount of loose skin and tissue that can drape the mid-body. This includes the stomach, lower back, buttocks, hips and upper tights. Those who experience massive weight loss can be left with skin and tissue that folds around them. It can be bulky, uncomfortable and unattractive. A body lift surgery addresses several areas around the midsection, much more than just a tummy tuck or butt lift.
A body lift is similar to a belt lipectomy, where an incision is made across the lower abdomen and the hips and lower back. Excess skin and tissue are removed from the abdomen, lower back, hips and pelvic region. The remaining muscle and skin are reformed to create a firmer, sculpted new abdomen, hip and lower back region, lifting and shaping the entire area.
A body lift after massive weight loss can be the final step to regaining the new body you worked so hard to obtain. You can wear fitted clothing without excess skin bulging or chaffing, revealing a firmer, more attractive shape.
