After a successful weight loss people often find they are left with excess folds of skin that will not conform to their new body shape. Not only is loose hanging skin unsightly but it can cause functional problems. Large amount of excess skin can cover the pubis and groin. Excoriation can occur in this area due to sweating. Similarly excess skin can hang off arms, chest, back and thighs. Inside thigh excess skin is a problem as it rubs against the other side. Patients feel that in spite of losing weight they cannot fully benefit from it as this excess skin restricts them and is also a cause of social embarrassment. A full body lift can remove this excess skin and tissue, and may give patients a slimmer look and an improved shape.
Regain your natural shape and confidence with a body lift at Aset Hospital . With decades of experience of body lift procedures our highly skilled surgeons are on hand to work with you to achieve a naturally sculpted and toned lower body to create definition in areas that once held excess fat
The ideal candidate for a full body lift is someone with excess loose skin following successful weight loss or bariatric surgery. This person should also have a strong personality as the scars from some of the surgery are rarely easy to hide. The scars which result from this procedure can be visible during social occasions; therefore it is essential that anyone considering this procedure is fully aware of this possibility and capable of dealing with awkward questions. Patients must be healthy and free from any chronic health problems.
Patients are assesed on an individual basis in order to create a tailored care package personalised to the individual, this involves checking your medical and psychological health. Our dedicated team will ensure that prior to your decision, you meet with a Consultant Plastic Surgeon to talk through your specific needs, questions and queries.
A body lift procedure is carried out under a general anaesthetic, lasts 3-5 hours and usually requires a 2-3 night hospital stay.
A lower body lift involves an abdominoplasty that extends around to the hips and back. During this procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the stomach, hips and back and that in turn lifts the pubic area, outer thighs and buttocks. During this surgery, we will try to make sure that the scars are in areas hidden beneath underwear. Sometimesliposuction alongside this surgery can be a very useful tool to remove excess fat and ensure an even result and desirable body shape.
Patients are most commonly dissatisfied if their expectations did not meet what can be realistically and safely achieved. For this reason, we try and get to know you before the procedure and talk to you about the results you can expect and what we can work together to achieve.
Due to incisions being all the way around the body, a body lift procedure carries a higher risk of complications than most surgeries. After the surgery, it is normal to expect some bruising but other risks can include infection, bleeding, haematoma, pain, wound breakdown, asymmetry, wrinkles and folds of skin, skin loss, unevenness and wide, lumpy, red or visible scars.
