Losing significant amounts of weight can be an exhilarating experience. While losing weight can be life-changing, there can be drawbacks. One of the unforeseen consequences of weight loss is the appearance of excess skin. When this happens, it can affect your confidence and distort your feelings surrounding your accomplishment. If you find yourself dealing with excess skin, we are happy to help you find a solution to help restore your confidence. One innovative method we use to help patients with excess skin is a body lift. Here are a few points on how a body lift works and how it can help you regain your confidence.
What is a Body Lift?
When we put on excessive amounts of weight, our bodies work hard to adjust. One way our bodies adjust to having extra weight is by allowing the skin to stretch to accommodate the extra weight. After you lose weight, sagging, unsightly skin lingers, creating a bitter-sweet feeling. A body lift is a procedure that helps reduce amounts of excess skin on your body due to rapid weight loss. The surgery involves eliminating excess skin and fat and helping to improve muscle quality in the surrounding areas. A body lift helps contour your body to a desired shape, helping you achieve a look you can be proud of.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
With any surgical procedure, it’s crucial to manage expectations because results can vary for each patient. However, many patients report that they have higher confidence after their procedure. It can take several weeks to a few months to notice the final results after surgery. The level of success of your procedure depends on your situation and needs.
Are There Risks With a Body Lift?
As with all surgeries, it’s vital to understand the potential risks associated with a body lift. A majority of body lift procedures involve using general anesthesia, and some of the common risks can include
- Abnormal scar formation
- Fluid buildup
