Body Lift After Massive Weight Loss
Confidence is Yours for the Taking
Losing a significant amount of weight is a feat that should be celebrated. But sagging excess skin often sticks around and conceals your hard-earned results. Dr. Bekanich understands that the “real you” might not be what you see in the mirror. Her goal is to help you make the changes you want to get your body where you want it to be.
Reveal Your Weight Loss Success
Body lift surgery effectively removes excess skin and tightens remaining skin to provide you with a physique that reflects your accomplishment. This procedure can improve the appearance of sagging skin in many areas of the lower body, including:
- Inner thighs
By removing hanging skin, a body lift not only helps you feel more confident in your appearance, it can also improve hygiene, physical comfort, and the way clothes fit.
What to Expect from Body Lift Surgery
Body lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and may necessitate a overnight hospital stay following surgery depending on how many areas are addressed. Dr. Bekanich will begin by making precise incisions in the area to be lifted, placed as inconspicuously as possible. The excess skin and tissue is then removed, lifted, and tightened until the desired results are achieved.
The body lift procedure involves a bit longer recovery period than other body contouring procedures, with downtime typically lasting from one to two weeks. It is normal to experience some discomfort and swelling after surgery, and Dr. Bekanich may prescribe pain medication to make your recovery more comfortable. Compression garments will need to be worn for a couple weeks to reduce swelling and ensure the integrity of your results.
