So, you’ve finally lost all of the weight you have been trying to shed — that’s awesome! We know that massive weight loss can often lead to excess skin and frustration. Don’t worry, we’re going to tell you all about body lifts and how they can help you feel your absolute best, so you can show off your hard work with even more confidence!
Why Have A Body Lift?
We all know that being overweight or obese can lead to some serious health conditions. Failure to manage your weight can lead to coronary heart disease, type II diabetes, high blood pressure, and even strokes. That’s why it’s so important to take care of our bodies, after all, they are the only ones that we get! Taking control of your weight can lead to extraordinary things beyond just weight loss, such as improved mental health and lower risk of depression.
Whether you are able to lose the weight through natural remedies such as diet and exercise, or you opt for a procedure such as bariatric surgery, you may be left with sagging skin on your body. The good news is that a body lift can dramatically reduce the signs left behind by weight loss.
Body Lift Variations
Many patients that have experienced massive weight loss find that the sagging skin left behind keeps them from fitting into their new clothes and ultimately, feeling their absolute best. This is where the body lift comes into play!
The 360 body lift focuses on your midsection. This procedure is designed to make you look more contoured, fit into your new clothes that compliment your body, and decrease the risk of skin infections. You can also have an upper body lift, lower body lift, or a full body lift. All of these procedures help to address sagging skin and any stubborn fat you may have left.
Depending on which surgery(s) you chose, your cost will fluctuate. You can expect that if your surgeon is only focusing on one area, your cost will be lower than if you were to have a full body lift. Keep in mind that the complexity of your procedure can also affect your total cost.
We highly recommend that you consult an extremely skilled surgeon, such as Dr.Mazaheri, if you believe that you are a good candidate for this procedure.
What Affects the Cost?
There numerous factors that can affect your total cost such as:
The amount of fat and skin: If you still have remaining fat, you may consider also having liposuction. If so, the cost of your procedure will be more.
Qualifications of surgeon: The more experience your doctor has, the more likely you will pay a bit more than someone who is less experienced. This is an important factor in considering which doctor is best for you, and who you feel comfortable with performing your body lift.
Patient health history: Generally speaking, patients with good health history pay less for their procedure than someone who may have pre-existing conditions as they may make the surgery more complicated.
Medication for after surgery: There is a high chance you will want to use painkillers and antibiotics after your surgery. These will help to manage and control pain and discomfort They shouldn’t raise your total price too much, but they are an additional cost you should consider.
Post-surgery needs: You will more than likely need post-surgery garments that help support the surgically treated skin throughout the healing process. The price varies, but you should speak with your doctor about what they recommend so that you have a better idea of how much additional cost you will have.
