- Posted on: Apr 30 2018
Extreme weight loss can feel like finally getting to the top of a mountain you’ve always wanted to climb. But discovering that you have a lot of excess skin afterward can make you feel like you’re sliding right back down that mountain. With a body lift from The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester, we can help lift and tighten the skin around your body so that you can sit back and enjoy your hard-earned weight loss goals.
During a body lift procedure, we can get rid of excess skin around the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, or arms all in one procedure. In addition to getting rid of excess skin, we may also recommend liposuction to help get rid of stubborn fat. So, how can you tell if you’re a good candidate for a body lift? Let’s take a closer look.
You Are Healthy
To undergo any type of cosmetic surgical procedure, you need to be in good health and not smoke. Both smoking and other health problems put you at high risk of developing infections or other issues during or after surgery. During your initial consultation, we will go over your current and past health history to help determine whether or not a body lift is suitable for you.
You Have A Lot of Excess Skin
For some patients, getting the body, they’ve always wanted after weight loss is as simple as cutting out a little more sugar for a couple of weeks to help tone up. Whereas, for some patients, getting the body they’ve always wanted seems impossible because of excess skin. And because creams and lotions can only do so much, a body lift may be your best option.
You Want Real Results
If you are looking for almost immediate and real results, then a body lift may be the right option for you. Through many patients experience some swelling afterward, once that subsides, you will be able to enjoy your new body once and for all.
If you feel like you’re unable to enjoy your weight loss results because of your excess, sagging skin, then you may want to consider a body lift from The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester. To learn more, schedule a consultation at our Rochester office today: (585) 922-5840.
