Men and women who have undergone bariatric surgery or have lost a significant amount of weight through diet and exercise are most often left healthier, but slightly disappointed in the results. This disappointment is due to the excess sagging skin which occurs from the loss of elasticity in your skin making it unable to adjust to the body’s weight loss. This excess skin hides the stunning results achieved and can be very upsetting. In most cases, a Body Lift surgery is required after such weight loss to restore the skin to a more natural, smoother, tighter appearance which can reveal all the amazing progress of your weight loss.
A Panniculectomy, or Body Lift, procedure is not necessarily the same for each person, rather it can be achieved through a number or interchangeable procedures designed to fit your individual needs. Popular options include Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), Buttock Lift, Breast Lift, Face and Neck Lift, Thigh Lift, and Brachioplasty (Arm Lift). In some cases, Liposuction may also be used to rid any excess, stubborn fat cells and create the most ideal results. Talking to a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon is the first step in determining your options.
