ANTIAGING BODY TREATMENTS

Body Lift

 

An important part of any wellness program is keeing our weight in healthy ranges. When a significant weight loss occurs, the skin cannot ‘spring’ back to firmly contain the new healthier physique.

As we age, skin elasticity reduces significantly, such that even moderate weight loss can leave unsightly hanging bulges in the abdominal area, buttocks, inner thighs and underarms.

 

Body Lifts

Body lifts can correct this excess skin and is mainly used to tighten the abdominal skin and muscle, and to lift the thigh and buttock areas. This is a highly customised procedure, with unavoidable scarring. However, surgeons work with the patient to identify distinct goals and priorities and place the scar lines appropriately.

This procedure is an extension of the classic abdominoplasty and can be done with minor shaping liposuction as needed.

 

The Body Lift Procedure

A body lift is usually done as an outpatient, but hospital stays may be indicated for some body lift patients.

 

Body Lift After Care

Pain is managed using a pump to allow early walking to reduce postsurgical risk and speed recovery.

Return to work is usually 2-3 weeks following the body lift procedure, however fully normal activities can be 2-3 months.

Continuing a proper diet and exercise plan is highly recommended with all body contouring procedures.

 

Risks And Contraindications For Body Lifts

Risk of blood transfusion and/or infection are very low; but smokers and the very overweight patient are not good candidates for this procedure.
