What Does A Full Body Lift Consist of?
A full body lift is a set of procedures that removes hanging or excess skin on the body. While surgery can be time-consuming and requires weeks in recovery, it can produce dramatic results in areas like the arms, legs, stomach, buttocks, and breasts.
Are you considering a full body lift with liposuction? Make sure you consult with qualified professionals first. Triple board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin can explain the benefits and risks of a body lift during a consultation in Oklahoma City, OK. Call Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates to see if we can help you reach your body contouring goals.
Who needs a full body lift?
Excess skin can affect different parts of the body for different reasons. For example, pregnancy and weight loss can leave behind excess skin folds and small pockets of fat around the abdomen. These problems cannot always be reduced through diet and exercise alone. Factors like age and gravity can make sagging skin worse.
Skin folds are not just a cosmetic issue. They can interfere with your mobility and make activities, like working out, more difficult. In addition, hanging skin can chafe and lead to infections. This is why it's important to speak with a plastic surgeon about your options for reducing sagging skin and bothersome fat. Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates may recommend a full body lift with liposuction to correct these issues and more.
What areas can you treat with a full body lift?
There are different techniques for performing a full body lift, but they all involve similar goals. Body contouring surgery in Oklahoma City, OK, could include the following based on your specific needs and goals:
Upper body lift: Removes excess skin from above the waist, including the arms, breast, neck, and back. An upper arm lift, breast lift, neck lift, and upper back tuck are all designed to create new contours and restore firmness to the body.
Lower body lift: Creates incisions around the middle to remove hanging skin and fat from the lower body. This involves the lower torso extending down to the buttocks and thighs. Surgery can also create the appearance of a fuller buttocks by redistributing fat to the area.
How many procedures can I get?
Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin will create an individual surgical treatment plan based on our findings during a consultation. We'll ask about the areas you want to address, your general medical history, and your expectations about results. Patients can get as many treatments as they want if they are in good health. In general, a full body lift with liposuction is more effective when it addresses multiple concerns at the same time. However, we may also recommend spacing out surgeries, so you have time to heal.
What results should I expect?
Recovery does take time, but our patients at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates say the body contouring results are worth it. Patients can expect a reduction in excess skin and a curvier silhouette that appears more defined. Areas like the upper arms, abdomen, hips, and buttocks will also appear more toned overall.
