Body lifts combine a number of powerful cosmetic surgery techniques in order to maximize a patient’s ability to become thinner, toned, streamlined and attractive. This surgery provides a way for people to sculpt and perfect their bodies in ways that are impossible to do with diet and working out alone. Body lift surgery is like a face lift, but for your body and performed by a board certified plastic surgeon. The goal is to tighten and firm the skin around the body which can become stretched out after childbirth or for people who have lost massive amounts of weight.
A body lift can shape and tone a wide number of different body areas, including the abdomen, the buttocks, the thighs and the breasts. Unlike most cosmetic surgeries, which only treat a small part of the body, a body lift can fix wide-spread problems and improve the appearance of large parts of the patient’s body all at once with various procedures.
The body lift surgery excels at treating excess skin, sagging fatty tissue, stretch marks and even cellulite. This makes the surgery excellent for people who have experienced large scale weight loss and for women who have suffered extensive damage to their figures due to pregnancy. Like any other cosmetic surgery, the decisions involved in getting a body lift are not to be taken lightly. A body lift surgery isn’t right for everyone, and even the people for whom a body lift would be ideal for must carefully overview the procedure with their physician in the initial consultation.
The more a patient knows about the body lift surgery, the more able he or she will be to make the right decisions regarding this surgery. Body lift patients should walk away from there consultation knowing how much they expect to pay for their surgery, how they can best prepare for the procedure, what the possible risks and complications are and how long it will take for them to recover. Knowledge is empowering and an informed patient is much more likely to get the results that he or she wants.
