Anyone with excess, loose or flabby skin in the “core” area or their body – the abdomen, thighs and buttocks – can be a good candidate for a body lift. Typically patients who have lost a tremendous amount of weight benefit greatly from a body lift. Do you qualify? If the skin around your waist can be easily pinched and lifted with your fingers, you may be a good candidate for a body lift.
A body lift is more correctly referred to as a lower body lift. It “lifts” the thighs and buttocks and flattens the abdomen. Considered a major surgery, a lower body lift involves several stages or cosmetic procedures, including an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), thigh lift and buttock lift.
It is important to recognize that a body lift is not a weight loss surgery. Instead it is designed to eliminate loose and drooping skin around your waistline by removing, resuspending and tightening the skin in your abdomen, and lifting and resculpting your buttocks and thighs. A lower body lift, meticulously performed by Dr. Jugenburg, can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your entire core by giving you improved shape and tone.
A period of recovery will follow your body lift procedure. This is common with any cosmetic surgery. The duration of your recovery will depend on the extent of your surgery, the timing of the various procedures, and your ability to follow the postoperative guidelines provided by Dr. Jugenburg. A body lift is a significant cosmetic procedure and you can expect to have several physical restrictions for weeks following the surgery. Overall, the healing process is a gradual one. There will be swelling, bruising and discomfort, however these will subside in time. And the amazing transformation you experience from a body lift will be worth the wait!
Dr. Jugenburg will identify any risks associated with your body lift surgery during your initial consultation. Postoperative complications are uncommon with lower body lift surgeries performed at Plastica Clinic. However, every procedure has potential risks. Some of the risks associated with body lift surgery are delayed healing or infection of wounds in the buttocks, abdomen and thighs. Smoking, poor diet and a failure to follow the instructions of your surgeon can cause postoperative complications.
Adhering to Dr. Jugenburg’s instructions and limiting certain activities after surgery, can significantly minimize postoperative risks and accelerate the healing process. Dr. Jugenburg and his medical staff will take every precaution to minimize any risks associated with your body lift surgery, diligently protecting your health and safety. All of the necessary precautions will be taken to protect you before, during and after surgery. Should there be any results, which are less than satisfactory, our professional cosmetic surgery team have the medical expertise, knowledge, and technology to correct it.
