Loose or sagging skin that has lost both its tone or its ability to “snap back” will inevitably need some type of “lift’ procedure to regain its original form. Significant weight loss and changes from pregnancy are the usual causes of inelastic, wrinkled body skin. Once the elasticity is gone, no exercise program, diet, laser treatment or ‘magic cream’ will bring it back. But body lifts can. Body lifts are commonly performed for the arms, the sides, the abdomen, the thighs and the buttocks. Shape and contour are improved as excess skin is removed and the body is restored to be tighter, firmer and lifted.
Body Lift Consultation
Before choosing your options for a body lift procedure, you will have a private, in-depth consultation with Dr. Back, who has earned a reputation as a ‘Top Doc’ for cosmetic surgery in South Jersey. After an examination, he will review with you everything you want and need to know, and together you will discuss your goals and his recommendations. All the details of the procedure will be reviewed, and you will also have ample time for questions. ‘Before & After’ photos of our previous patients’ results are available to help new patients visualize the options available to them.
Body Lift Procedure
Most body lift procedures are performed in the operating room, under general anesthesia. Incisions are hidden in natural body creases and shadows. The excess skin is removed and the remaining tissues are tightened and lifted. Liposuction techniques are sometimes incorporated to assist in the re-contouring and reshaping process. Multiple body areas can be addressed in one procedure, but most patients opt for keeping it simple, with just one or two areas at a time, to limit risk and streamline their recovery.
Body Lift Recovery
Depending on the extent of the lifting procedure(s), most patients will need 1-2 weeks to recover. Deep support sutures help the newly contoured tissues to heal securely into position. Activity restrictions are released after about 4 weeks.
