The aging process, pregnancy and major weight loss can cause your skin’s natural elasticity to deteriorate, resulting in substantial sagging of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. When this occurs, Dr. Farzaneh may recommend a body lift to eliminate any excess volume and restore a firm, smooth and youthful contour.
What is a Body Lift?
Firstly congratulations. Now that you have reached a milestone in achieving your physical and emotional health, you may be considering cosmetic surgery to eliminate your loose skin, tighten the loose muscles, remove the localized residual fat deposits, or reposition or augment the deflated areas of the face, breast or body. Procedures such as an arm lift and liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), body lift, breast lift with or without augmentation, brow, eye and face lift, or fat grafting to the face can help you complete the journey.
A body lift is a specialized cosmetic procedure designed to elevate and tighten sagging skin, thus achieving a slim and youthful overall appearance. It is highly customized to each individual patient.
Areas Treated with a Body Lift
A body lift is very effective at elevating the areas of the body that are most commonly impacted by excess, sagging skin, including:
The Abdomen. If your tummy features a significant amount of sagging skin and excess fat, a body lift with Dr. Farzaneh will permanently eliminate the unsightly volume, elevate the underlying tissue, and create a firm and beautiful abdomen.
The Buttocks. If your buttocks is low, flat, unevenly shaped or marked by loose skin, a body lift with Dr. Farzaneh will create a shapely, firm and more beautiful behind.
The Thighs. During a body lift, Dr. Farzaneh is able to create slim and sculpted thighs that you’re proud to show off, by both reducing their circumference and tightening loose skin.
I am 11 years gastric bypass post op and it was time to complete the transformation. Dr. Farzaneh met with me for over an hour and explained all of the risks due to the large volume of skin that had to be removed. I left his office with the advice to research my type of surgery before making a decision. My surgery was a success and I was back to work in 3 weeks. Dr. Farzaneh visited me at home the first two days due to the extreme heat and did not want me to come to the office. Dr. Farzaneh had changed my life. I am now finally comfortable in my own body and I am more agile in my activities and exercise routines. I can't thank Dr. Farzaneh enough for the care I received or for answering his cell phone at 11:30 pm to ease my concerns post surgery. I would and have highly recommend Dr. Farzaneh.
Following a body lift with Dr. Farzaneh, you can expect to see a smooth, slim and youthful body contour when you look in the mirror. The entire lower half of your body will appear dramatically elevated, with a flat abdomen, sculpted thighs and a firm, rounded buttocks. In addition, any excess, sagging skin and tissue will have been permanently removed.
The results of a body lift procedure with Dr. Farzaneh tend to be life-changing for his patients, as they deliver not only a beautiful and sculpted new physical appearance, but also unprecedented levels of confidence.
