Achieving a slimmer, more toned physique might just be the goal for anyone you talk to. But for some people, particularly those with high body fat levels, losing weight is the priority.
Weight loss itself is challenging and deserves recognition. However, many people don’t realize that it is only the first stage of achieving the body one desires.
After significant weight loss or bariatric surgery, the body still has large quantities of loose skin. The best way to sculpt a post-weight loss body is with a body lift, which Dr. Farber discusses here.
What is a Body Lift?
A body lift is a procedure that removes excess skin from particular areas of the body, thus tightening the remaining skin and resulting in a smoother, tighter, better-defined physique.
The procedure resembles a tummy tuck, but while a tummy tuck focuses purely on the abdomen, a body lift improves the appearance of the whole body, including the lower back, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs (which is where patients get the 360-degree sculpting benefits!).
How Does a Body Lift Work?
A body lift works by creating incisions that are similar to bikini lines, from where excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is pulled in tight to close the area from which skin was initially removed. Strategically placed sutures hold the skin in its new setting to emphasize your new contours and shape. Patients get the best results from a body lift when they use compression bandages during their recovery, ensuring the skin stays in its desired position until it has permanently settled.
