Achieving substantial weight loss can greatly benefit your health, appearance and quality of life. Unfortunately, losing large amounts of body fat can leave you with excess skin and tissue that does not shrink to your new, smaller shape. Flaps of extra skin and tissue can be uncomfortable and restrictive, as well as an aesthetic problem. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer body lift after massive weight loss surgery at our medical center in Miami.
When the body loses a massive amount of weight, the skin can be left stretched and sagging. This is one of the negative side effects of what is a major accomplishment. Many people who undergo bariatric surgery or other types of weight loss programs can lose half their body weight or more, which can leave a large amount of excess skin that droops in folds on the arms, breasts, abdomen, back, flanks and thighs. A body lift procedure can remove and tighten this excess skin and tissue to improve the comfort and appearance of the patient.
Customized Body Contouring Surgery
Each patient with excess skin from massive weight loss is unique and needs a customized body lift for their specific trouble areas. A body lift is not one procedure, but a combination of lift procedures in multiple areas on the body. Dr. Ali Charafeddine, our board certified plastic surgeon, can recommend which lift procedures would benefit your shape. These can include:
- Breast lifts
- Brachioplasty, or arm lifts
- Butt or hip lifts
- Thigh lifts
If you have lost a tremendous amount of weight, congratulations! If you are ready to take the next step in your journey to a healthier and more attractive you, consider the benefits of a body lift procedure.
