If you recently lost a significant amount of weight, you might be an excellent candidate for a body lift. Many of our Atlanta patients elect to undergo a body lift after losing 100 pounds or more. Losing 100+ pounds of weight is considered extreme weight loss, and it often causes a person to be left with excessive amounts of loose skin.
A body lift can help reduce the appearance of sagging skin all over your body. The most common areas of improvement after a body lift are the abdomen, the legs, the back-side or buttocks, the arms, the face, the neck, and the breasts.
You must be in good health to undergo a body lift. You must also meet the following criteria:
- Your weight loss must have stabilized
- A period of at least two years must have elapsed since having bariatric surgery
- You must understand that a body lift will significantly help relieve the look of sagging or “loose” skin, but it will probably not result in the complete elimination of stretch marks
If you live in or around the Atlanta area, please contact Crispin Plastic Surgery today to schedule a body lift consultation with Dr. Mark Crispin.
