Post Bariatric Body Lift
Post bariatric patients undergo dramatic weight loss typically involving a 100 pounds or more and subsequently struggle with accumulation of moderate to severe skin redundancy. The accumulation of redundant skin can cause not only aesthetic concerns but also functional constraints.
Areas that are prone to developing skin redundancy include the upper arms, breasts, abdomen, medial thighs, lateral thighs, upper back, lower back, flanks, and buttocks. Unique body lift or tucking procedures have been designed to address each of the above regions and include: brachioplasty, breast lift, tummy tuck, medial thigh tuck, lateral thigh tuck, upper body lift, lower body lift, and Brazilian buttocks lift respectively. Patients who may be considering a lift or tucking procedure are encouraged to review the post bariatric body lifts before and after results below.
A total body lift can be customized to allow for a combination of the above procedures to be performed simultaneously. A consultation with Dr. Mowlavi will allow you to tailor a unique plan to help you achieve the transformation you desire.
