27 Apr Weight Loss and Loose Skin – Yes There Are Options
If you have recently shed a very large amount of weight, you have probably been considering liposuction, a tummy tuck or even a body lift. It’s not unusual for individuals who have lost a large amount of weight to be thrilled with the weight loss and appalled by what losing the weight has left behind.
Indeed, life isn’t fair, however, we need to face the fact that the stretched out, saggy skin that you see in the mirror isn’t going anywhere. No amount of exercise is going to get rid of it, and, that is a fact. There is good news. There are procedures that can be done that will accomplish exactly what you want. No two individuals will lose weight in the same way. Therefore, this is an individualized choice.
There are options that you should acquaint yourself with.
The Body Lift
The Body Lift Surgery option takes on many forms depending upon your needs. Patients who have had massive weight loss through bariatric surgery are candidates for this option. A body lift involves the abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs and requires a circumferential incision, addressing the back, flanks, and abdomen, also. Many people pair the body lift with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or liposuction.
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. There are different types of tummy tucks available, which will be discussed with you at your consultation.
Liposuction is a great addition to both a body lift and tummy tuck. Liposuction uses a small tube or cannula to suck out fat reserves in areas that are impossible to exercise away. Liposuction adds an element of contouring to enhance the results of the other procedures.
