Bariatric surgery can be a life-changing experience for many overweight and obese individuals. Massive weight loss can improve your health and appearance, giving you the freedom to enjoy life to its fullest. While weight loss surgery can help you lose fat, it does not shrink the skin that was stretched during the weight gain. The only true way to remove and tighten loose skin after massive weight loss is with body contouring plastic surgery. Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills offers body lift post-bariatric surgery procedures to remove the extra skin and reshape the body.
Bariatric surgery is a tool to help lose weight quicker and more effectively. Anyone who has had weight loss surgery knows that it is not an “easy” way out of obesity, but part of a process and program to become healthier. It still requires dedication and hard work to lose anywhere from 50 to hundreds of pounds. Once the weight is gone, the body is smaller and usually healthier, but there is often loose skin left behind.
Bariatric patients are often disappointed with the extra skin that hangs on their smaller body. In some cases, it can be uncomfortable or become irritated from rubbing and folding. The lower abdomen is a common problem area, as well as the thighs, buttocks, breasts and upper arms. Body lifts can address the lower torso and buttocks to remove excess skin and tighten the midsection.
Lift Procedures After Massive Weight Loss
Not everyone who has excessive loose skin around the middle had bariatric surgery. Even if you lose massive amounts of weight without surgery, you will likely have loose skin. A body lift procedure is designed to remove excess skin 360 degrees around the lower abdomen and back to reshape the torso and buttocks. The procedure combines the benefits of abdominoplasty with Lipo 360 and a buttock lift, reshaping, lifting and tightening the entire circumference of the lower torso and upper pelvic region.
Body lift post-bariatric surgery or after massive weight loss can improve your appearance and comfort. In some cases, health insurance may cover a body lift procedure if there is a history of loose skin infections or rashes.
If you have loose skin around your middle after massive weight loss, a body lift surgery can have a significant impact on your appearance and comfort.
