Excess sagging skin can not only interfere with a positive self-image but can also cause a variety of health issues such as chafing, irritation, and infection. It can make it difficult to find clothing that fits and can inhibit a person’s mobility and stamina. A surgical body lift is a strategic procedure to remove redundant skin folds, revealing a more sculpted, contoured physique. It is often performed for those who have undergone massive weight loss after bariatric surgery, exercise, dietary restriction, or pregnancy. Dr. Sadrian's body lift surgery in San Diego can also serve to improve the figure for clients with a loss of skin laxity due to the aging process, hereditary traits, or certain medical disorders.
A lower body lift, or more formally a belt lipectomy, can transform the appearance through a series of contouring procedures that are customized to the client’s wishes. It can remove excess sagging skin from the belly, hips, thighs, buttocks, and groin. To also rid these areas of stubborn fat, liposuction may be combined with body sculpting techniques.
While performing a lower body lift in his San Diego office, Dr. Sadrian will remove excess skin from the midsection, thighs, and buttocks. The belly muscles are tightened during the process, and liposuction may be employed to help trim unnecessary pockets of fat. If desired, Dr. Sadrian can perform a fat transfer procedure to help augment the rear end and give it a more pleasing, youthful shape. In every case, Dr. Sadrian will go to great lengths to minimize your scarring by placing the incisions inconspicuously. Scars will be well-hidden by the bikini line.
An upper body lift can help restore a proportionate, balanced silhouette, removing unwanted skin rolls from the back and around the chest. It is often combined with mastopexy or male breast reduction as well as an upper arm lift.
The incisions for an upper body lift are placed in such a way that a woman can still wear backless dresses and tops. Scars will be covered by a bra or bikini top. With an arm lift, the incisions are placed on the underside of the arms, where they are hardly visible.
Losing a significant amount of weight is a huge achievement, but it can be obscured by the reality of the sagging skin left behind. If you are struggling with excess skin that won’t resume its shape despite a rigorous exercise regime, a body lift could be the perfect solution for your concerns.
