The Benefits of a Body Lift
The treatment lifts, firms and straightens the skin in areas such as the legs and buttocks, along with wrists, groin and stomach. The extra skin is excised, and the underlying tissue readjusted to establish a more attractive and appealing body contour. Each body lift procedure is personalized to suit the specific needs of each individual patient.
Body Lift Candidates
Body lifts are performed on people with significant quantities of loose, dangling skin in various areas of the torso and legs. The goal is to tighten and refine the appearance of the body and figure following massive weight loss. Women who have undergone pregnancy and are having difficulty restoring the pre-pregnancy appearance of their body can benefit from a body lift or a mommy makeover.
Women contemplating pregnancy should avoid getting a body lift because eventual pregnancy will substantially compromise the results of their body lift. A body lift is recommended for women who no longer plan on having children. It is also important that you commit to maintaining a stable body weight following your body lift in order to maintain your results for as long as possible.
Preparing for The Procedure
At your initial consultation, Dr. Jacobson will ask about your reasons for wanting a body lift. He will ask what your ideal goals are for the procedure and perform an examination of the areas of your body you are looking to address. He will also perform some tests and go over your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
You will need to change, stop or quit taking some medications within a week or two of your operation. This includes stopping aspirin, certain anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements for two weeks before surgery. Be sure you make plans for your transportation from the surgical center. It is also recommended that you have someone to help you throughout the first day or so of your recovery.
