Losing a significant amount of weight can be a huge milestone in many people’s lives. However, sometimes shedding off those extra pounds can leave you with lose, hanging skin that can look unflattering and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. While diet and exercise work on some people, others are not as fortunate, and they seek out alternative solutions to get the results they desire. Body lift surgery can address stubborn fat depots and excess skin in trouble areas of your body, and it can provide you with a more slimming and attractive figure.
Most patients who look into body lift surgery usually struggle with excess fat and skin in various areas of their body as a result of losing weight, pregnancy, or the natural effects of aging. Others may have developed weak abdominal muscles from these factors and wish to tighten the muscles to produce a more toned and firm appearance.
Whatever the reason, body lift surgery will not only enhance your overall figure, but it can also give you a boost in confidence and make you feel good about the way you look. If you are interested in undergoing this procedure, you must be in good health, a non-smoker, and close to your ideal weight goal. During your consultation, Dr. Carpenter will examine the condition of your body to determine the best plan that will meet your personal and aesthetic goals.
Your Body Lift Options
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of your stomach by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. An incision is placed just above the bikini line as excess skin is trimmed away and the tissues are tightened. The remaining skin is pulled down, and the incisions are closed. Tummy tuck surgery can eliminate that troublesome stomach pooch to provide you with a flatter and more attractive midsection.
Circumferential Tummy Tuck Surgery
Unlike a traditional tummy tuck surgery, circumferential tummy tuck surgery can improve the entire midsection, lateral thighs, and buttocks to enhance the whole lower body. During your procedure, incisions will be made along the treated area. Excess skin is removed from the abdomen and the thighs and buttocks are lifted to a more attractive position. Once your lower body has been reshaped, the incisions are closed and you will be left with a slimmer waist.
Liposuction can eliminate stubborn fat depots in various areas of the body that cannot be removed through diet and exercise. These areas include the back, thighs, hips, abdomen, and buttocks. A small hollow tube is inserted into the treated area and excess fat is removed through suction, leaving you with aesthetically pleasing contours.
