If you’ve experienced dramatic weight loss, but have a lot of loose skin you need to remove, a body lift can provide the transformation you desire. Perhaps you think the excess skin makes you look unappealing despite your weight loss, so you’re wondering – Will a body lift make me look slimmer.
What exactly is a body lift?
A body lift is a combination of procedures that aim to remove excess skin in order to contour specific areas of the body. It is a popular procedure among individuals that have undergone significant weight loss and have a considerable amount of loose skin that can’t be tightened with exercise alone.
A tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), breast lift, thigh lift, and arm lift, are among the most popular body lift procedures.
Depending on the areas that need to be treated, a body lift may have to be done in stages.
Will I look slimmer after a body lift?
A body lift gets rid of excess fat and sculpts the body, so you will certainly have a slimmer silhouette after surgery. A body lift contours the body by removing loose folds of skin. It will therefore help you achieve the body you’ve been working for, and allow you to finally see and appreciate the results of your weight loss.
How long will the results of my body lift last?
The results of a body lift will last a long time if a healthy, active lifestyle is adopted and maintained.
