Body Lift – Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift Mastopexy
Full body procedures after weight loss are very common and safe today. We often see patients who have lost 50 to 100 lbs with diet modification or gastric bypass procedures. The patients are thrilled with their new body size and weight but are very unhappy with the droopy skin. We have number of surgical options depending on the patients needs. This patient underwent a breast lift and a circumferential body lift as well as thigh liposuction. She didn’t want large breasts and has enough of her own breast tissue under the droopy skin to give her an perky, athletic look. Her abdomen is tight, lifted and lean and her breast are more youthful. These procedures can take quite a number of hours and we often need one night of surgery center or hospital stay for safety. It takes about 6-8 weeks for recovery under ideal conditions. If you have lost considerable weight, then body lift type procedures may be a good option for you.
