Body Lift (Excessive Skin)
Body Lift (Excessive Skin Removal) Surgery improves the shape and tone by removing excess skin and the underlying fat. Excess sagging fat and skin are caused in part by poor tissue elasticity. A complete lower body lift treats the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs in one procedure.
Body Lift surgery, also known as Body Contouring, is a popular procedure for people who want immediate results with problem areas. Some individuals are prone to storing fat in areas where even vigorous exercise, a strict diet and overall healthy lifestyle cannot fix.
Sudden or gradual weight gain/weight loss, pregnancy and the ageing human can negatively affect the shape of your body, especially around the abdominal area, hips, waist, inner and outer thighs and buttocks.
A woman’s body experiences a multitude of changes through her various stages of life; from puberty, to motherhood and maturing into a fine lady – after which gravity may affect the shape of one’s figure.
People may choose body contouring and body lift surgery to improve their quality of life through increased self-esteem and confidence in their body. Others may wish to correct areas of their body which have been adversely affected by life’s stresses and challenges.
Body lifts can be used to treat excess skin, cellulite and sagging fatty tissue. Many people who have achieved significant weight loss (100 pounds or more) due to bariatric surgery (such as gastric bypass or Lap-Band) or through diet and exercise are often left with large amounts of heavy, loose folds of skin around the abdomen, arms, thighs, breasts, buttocks and face.
Skin can sag and lose elasticity as a result of being stretched for a long period of time, and often fails to shrink back to its former size and shape. In addition, excess skin can limit mobility and result in rashes and other sores that may lead to infection.
