If you have recently achieved a significant amount of weight loss, congratulations! This is a huge accomplishment that requires hard work, dedication, and perseverance. You may be feeling great about your new body, but there are often some residual effects of rapid weight loss that can leave you feeling less than confident. One common issue after weight loss is loose skin. This can occur anywhere on the body but is often most noticeable in the abdominal area. A body lift can help to address these issues by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the rest of the skin for a smoother, more toned appearance. Dr. Rachel Walker of Dallas, TX, is a doctor who can evaluate patients and talk to them about this elective procedure to improve self-confidence after this amazing transformation!
What is a body lift?
A body lift is a blend of surgical procedures that contours the body by removing excess fat and skin while tightening the remaining skin. This surgery is typically performed on patients who have recently undergone massive weight loss but can also be done on those who have lost a significant amount of weight through diet and exercise. A body lift can often be performed in one surgery but may sometimes need to be broken up into two or more procedures, depending on the individual case.
What are the benefits of a body lift?
There are many benefits to undergoing a body lift, both cosmetic and functional. Cosmetically, a body lift can give patients the tighter, more toned appearance they desire after their dramatic weight loss. This can help to improve self-confidence and quality of life. Functionally, removing excess skin can also help to alleviate certain skin conditions such as rashes and chafing.
