Body Lift

When you set out to lose a significant amount of weight through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, you probably have a certain expectation of what your slimmer body will look like. That vision likely does not include the folds of loose skin left behind. Rapid, massive weight loss often does not provide the skin with sufficient time to conform to the new contours of the body. This leaves you with folds of skin that prohibit you from wearing smaller clothing sizes comfortably, and interferes with the overall results of your weight loss efforts.

A body lift is a surgical procedure Dr. Saad can customize to your precise requirements, giving you the lift you need right where you need it. This procedure removes loose skin and firms up your newly slender body contour to provide you with the results you visualized when you began your weight loss process.

Are You a Candidate?

A body lift is an extensive surgical procedure that requires you to be in good health and a non-smoker to ensure the safest and most successful results. It is important that you have reached a stable weight before surgery, since weight fluctuation can affect your results. A body lift can address any or all of the following areas of concern:

  • Abdomen and midsection
  • Upper arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Hips and flanks
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks

In each of these areas, Dr. Saad will remove loose skin, repositioning underlying tissue when necessary for a natural, beautiful result. This surgery can address all areas at one time, or it can be performed in stages, depending on the extent of correction needed and your personal preference.

About Your Surgery

The lower body lift, which includes the hips, flanks, buttocks, and outer thighs, is performed under general anesthesia. The incision is circumferential, extending around the lower portion of the midsection, where it will be safely concealed underneath clothing. Through the extended incision, Dr. Saad excises loose skin and excess tissue, creating a smoother contour from the hips to the knees. If the abdomen, inner thighs, breasts or arms will be included in the procedure, those areas will be corrected at the same time as the lower body, using additional incisions if necessary.

Because a body lift involves extensive incisions, Dr. Saad will take great care in placing incisions where they will not be noticeable under clothing. His expert suturing techniques will also ensure minimal scarring once the incision heals fully. While scarring cannot be avoided with a procedure like this one, choosing an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Saad will ensure the best possible results after your surgery.

The Recovery Process

It is likely you will spend a night or two in the hospital after your body lift, to ensure a safe and successful start to your recovery. At home, you will be instructed on how to care for your incision, and of steps you can take to minimize post-operative swelling and bruising. You will probably be able to return to most activities within three weeks, while strenuous activity will be restricted for up to eight weeks to prevent complications.

Once your body has healed completely from your lift procedure, you will enjoy results that are both dramatic and long-lasting, as long as you maintain a stable weight. This surgery can have a profound impact on your self-confidence and your quality of life, as the new body contour creates comfort and greater satisfaction in your appearance.
