Body Lift Los Angeles, CA
Have you lost a great deal of weight and have loose skin all over your body? A body lift may be the answer.
A body lift most commonly refers to recontouring the lower body by addressing loose skin and contours. Most commonly a patient may need a tummy tuck to take care of the skin and abdominal wall laxity in the front. However some patients may have loose skin on the back buttocks or lateral thighs as well. This is referred to as a posterior lower body lift. A tummy tuck and a posterior lower body lift can be performed at the same time and is referred to as a circumferential lower body lift or belt lipectomy.
The circumferential lower body lift can be performed in one surgical setting. This will allow for a flat abdomen and an improved lower back. At the same time, the buttock can be lifted and the lateral thighs can be improved.
Dr. Hughes performs the body lift and all other body contouring procedures including liposuction, arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift, upper back lift, and Brazilian buttlift. Dr. Hughes can provide for total body transformation like no other, because he offers every conceivable approach to body contouring and he is a master of all techniques.
Frequent Questions about Body Lifts:
I had a tummy tuck, but I now have looseness on the sides and back. Is the posterior lower body lift for me?
This is probably a very reasonable option. Sometimes, the buttocks is deflated as well after massive weight loss and Dr. Hughes can transfer fat to the buttocks and hips to help overall body contours tremendously.
How Much Can be Done at Once? How Many Operations Can Be Performed at Once?
Dr. Hughes offers the full gamut of body contouring procedures. Depending upon your overall medical healthy and BMI (or body mass index) you may be able to have several procedures done at once. Safety is of utmost importance, and Dr. Hughes never operates for more than 6 hours under general anesthesia. Shorter anesthesia times are associated with fewer anesthetic and postoperative complications.
