Body Lift After Weight Loss
Losing a massive amount of weight is a fantastic accomplishment, as it can improve your health, appearance and mobility. However, fat loss does not necessarily shrink everything on your body. Many people who have lost a tremendous amount of weight have excess skin and tissue left behind that can be uncomfortable and unattractive. At Maia Plastic Surgery in the Washington, DC, area, we offer body lift after weight loss plastic surgery to help reshape your midsection and other areas of the body.
Many men and women have success in losing hundreds or more pounds from gastric bypass or other weight loss methods. This transformation can be amazing – the weight loss can help improve many health conditions and overall quality of life. Yet, once the fat is gone, the skin and tissue that encapsulated the fatty tissue may remain. In the midsection, this can result in a large flap of skin and tissue that encompasses the abdomen, back and pubic region. This can impact how clothes fit and cause discomfort and chaffing. The solution is removing the skin, fat and tissue to restore a trimmer abdomen, backside and pubic region.
Post-Gastric Bypass Body Lift Surgery
A belt lipectomy or truncal body lift can be used post-gastric bypass or after any massive weight loss to reshape the midsection. This is an extensive lift surgery, with an incision that circumferences the abdomen and lower back to remove the excess skin flap and reshape the midsection. The pubic region can also be liposuctioned and lifted to rejuvenate the mons pubic. Other body lifts that may help reshape the body after massive weight loss include:
