Post Bariatric Surgery in Rochester – Body Lift
Loose and excess skin can occur in many areas, including the area around the abdomen, the thighs, the neck, under the arms, or anywhere else large deposits of fat have disappeared. In addition to the cosmetic benefits for our patients in Rochester, a body lift can also be beneficial in terms of health. Rashes, infections, and difficulty in exercising can all result from the loose folds of skin that occur after drastic weight loss. A body lift alleviates these problems as well.
Body Lift Surgery
If your case is less severe, with loose skin concentrated around the abdomen, the physicians at The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester recommend tummy tuck rather than the more involved body lift procedure.
At our facilities in Rochester, body lift surgery will be scheduled when your weight has stabilized after the most drastic period of weight loss. Depending on the amount of skin that needs to be removed, and the number of areas that need to be tightened, the body lift may be performed in stages.
During the procedure, your doctor will make incisions and remove excess skin in key locations, then pull the remaining skin taut and seal the incisions. Scars will result from a body lift, but an experienced plastic surgeon can place the incisions strategically to make the scars as inconspicuous as possible.
Contact our board-certified plastic surgeons in Rochester if body lift or panniculectomy surgeries are something you’re considering. We can help you choose the procedure that is right for you.
