Losing a significant amount of weight is a huge accomplishment that should be celebrated by everyone. The problem is that you are left with a lot of unwanted hanging skin after the weight loss. Excess skin can ruin the chances of feeling great about your body after all the hard work. Luckily, you still have options to get the body of your dreams. If you are currently dealing with excess skin after dramatic weight loss, a 360 circumferential body lift can completely change your life.
What Is a 360 Circumferential Body Lift?
A 360 circumferential body lift is a procedure that is designed to remove the excess skin while also tightening the remaining skin. A 360 circumferential lower body lift removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen, hips, and buttocks. A torsoplasty, brachioplasty, or other procedure may also be added to your surgery to give you the contoured body you have always desired.
The Surgical Procedure
The 360 circumferential body lift is a lengthy procedure, and general anesthesia is required. Dr. J. Timothy Katzen will remove your excess skin. The remaining skin and tissues are then lifted and secured in their new position with sutures. It will generally take about six to eight hours to complete the 360 circumferential body lift.
Recovery and Results
You will be required to stay at a recovery center for one or two days after the body lift surgery. You will have several restrictions on your activities at this time. These restrictions will be lifted as you recover from your body lift, depending on your recovery.
The results of your 360 circumferential body lift will be immediately noticeable. The excellent results will only improve over time as the bruising and swelling on your body disappear. If you avoid any significant weight fluctuations after the body lift surgery, then you will be able to enjoy your new contoured body the rest of your life.
