Why choose a Body Lift?
The hard-earned weight-loss after Bariatric Reconstruction can be painfully undermined by remaining sagging, hanging skin. The hanging skin can make it difficult to maintain hygiene, find clothing that fits properly and can make activities like sitting down or standing up difficult if not embarrassing. During a Body Lift, excessive skin, fat and loose tissues are removed and the entire trunk (abdomen, flanks, and back) and sometimes of the buttocks and thighs are lifted. This can smooth the body to its new shape. This procedure is often the final, important step in major weight-loss.
This rewarding procedure requires at least a short hospital stay, a more involved and lengthy recovery period than other standard body contouring procedures and is performed under general anesthesia.
