Body Lift Surgery in Dallas, Texas
A body lift is often an excellent solution following dramatic weight loss, such as after bariatric weight loss surgery. Loose skin and tissues can affect both men and women who have lost weight, and in some cases, no amount of exercise can eliminate these issues. A body lift can:
- Create a tighter, more toned and flattering shape
- Reshape several parts of your physique in one procedure, including the hips, abdomen, back, buttocks, flanks, and thighs
- Alleviate the discomfort and emotional distress that comes from rashes that often result from excess skin
- Restore self-confidence after significant weight loss
Dr. Carpenter will thoroughly evaluate your medical history and physical condition before proceeding with plans for your body lift surgery. A successful body lift may require incorporating a number of different procedures, including a tummy tuck or liposuction. Each individual will have different requirements, goals and problem areas, so a customized plan for your body lift will be developed just for you. A body lift alone is typically appropriate for younger patients who do not have issues with loosened abdominal muscles. In this case, loose skin leftover from weight loss is removed. Many patients will need additional procedures to achieve the desired results. To discuss your particular situation, make an appointment with Dr. Carpenter for a body lift consultation.
The recovery process is as individual as the procedure itself. A body lift can involve extensive adjustments to body shape, muscles, and skin. Depending on the extensiveness of the procedures, recovery can take a month or more, but most patients are able to resume normal activities within a couple of weeks. Contact Dr. Carpenter to discuss your specific body lift and contouring needs.
