There are many different body contouring procedures, each targeted to address a certain concern you may have about a specific area of your body. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure targeted specifically at removing fat from stubborn deposits that make you unhappy with your figure. Body lifts, on the other hand, can be used to remove both fat and excess skin in various areas of the body. If you have excess, loose skin that you would like to get rid of, you may be a good candidate for a body lift
In addition to having loose, excess skin that can respond to the procedure, such as after significant weight loss, an ideal candidate for a body lift is:
- In good general health
- At or near their ideal weight
- Has realistic expectations for the procedure
- Understands the procedure, including its risks and benefits
During your consultation we will talk about what these mean and ask you specific questions about your medical history. We will help you understand the procedure and point you to good resources for further research. We will give you preoperative instructions so you can come to your surgical appointment physically and mentally prepared.
The best way to learn whether you are a candidate for a body lift is through a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. We invite you to schedule your consultation at either of our Atlanta, Georgia locations today.
