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.
What is a lower body lift?
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.
