The body lift is a treatment for major sagging skin and fat after massive weight loss.
Body lift operations have become very popular due to the progress of bariatric surgery (sleeve, by-pass, gastric band, etc.) causing many people to have significant rapid weight loss, sometimes in a few months.
Sagging is spread over the entire circumference of the body and will require a complete circular re-tensioning of all sagging tissues.
There are different types of body lift, depending to the condition of the body concerned:
The upper body lift allows the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper body: upper back, armpits, hips and sub-mammary pads. A breast lift can be performed at the same time.
The lower body lift allows the removal of excess skin and fat from the tummy area:
At the front: the abdomen and pubis
At the back: the lower back and buttocks
To the side: sides, hips and thighs.
In cases of massive weight loss, the body has undergone a radical change afterlosing dozens of kilos. However, the satisfaction of slimming, which is very beneficial for health, can be tarnished by sagging tissues, which can often lead to significant functional discomfort and aesthetic issues and requiring a change to your body image.
