If you have experienced substantial weight loss, you may have sagging skin or difficult-to-remove fat deposits on your arms, legs, or abdominal area. A body lift removes excess skin and stubborn fat from any or all of these areas, leaving your figure smoother and more contoured. More than just a cosmetic procedure, removing loose skin will help you feel more comfortable and confident in your everyday life. Let Dr. Ortiz, Raleigh’s renowned plastic surgeon, help you achieve the figure of your dreams with a body lift.
Each body lift is tailored to your needs so the end result is the figure you’ve always dreamed of. In addition to excess skin and fat, damaged skin and stretch marks can also be removed during a body lift. A body lift does not remove excess fat, although you can choose to have liposuction performed during your body lift to remove stubborn fat deposits.
Body lifts may be performed on the lower body, upper body, or the entire body, depending on your problem areas. A lower body lift firms and tightens the buttocks, backs of the thighs, and hips while an upper body lift tightens and smooths the arms, back, and breasts. A full body lift combines these procedures for an overall tighter, smoother figure. During your pre-surgery consultations, Dr. Ortiz will discuss these options with you to determine which best meets your needs. A body lift may be performed whether your weight loss resulted in lifestyle changes or bariatric surgery, but your weight must have stabilized for several months prior to your procedure. It's best if you have reached your goal weight before having a body lift.
Dr. Ortiz has helped women all over the world complete their weight loss journey and get the figure they envisioned. With a full or partial body lift, he can do the same for you. He will discuss every body lift option and all aspects of your procedure so you feel comfortable each step of the way.
