Body Lift in Beverly Hills
A body lift is the term used for procedures that lift and contour your body after weight loss due to surgery, dietary changes, age or pregnancy. A body lift also helps to remove residual excess fatty tissue and cellulite. With these post-bariatric procedures Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Mashhadian can help you gain the confidence you want in your thinner figure.
The Need for a Body Lift
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, over 30% of Americans are obese. From 2007 to 2009 the CDC states that the number of obese adults increased by 2.4 million. With such a drastic increase, obese patients have turned to bariatric surgery as a resolution. Bariatric procedures can decrease body fat by 25 to 61% depending on which procedure you choose.
While achieving your weight loss goal is rewarding, the loose, hanging skin is not. The likelihood of your skin tightening and returning to the pre-obesity state is unlikely. Leaving folds of skin can cause rashes, skin infections and difficulty fitting into clothing, as well as make you self-conscious. As a result, patients often turn to plastic surgeons like Dr. Mashhadian for body lift procedures.
Types of Body Lifts
During your consultation with Dr. Mashhadian, you will discuss your desired results from a body lift and choose which combination of procedures will help you achieve the look you want. You may benefit from:
- Upper Body Lift – focuses on mid-back, breasts, and contouring of the breasts (gynecomastia procedure if male)
- Lower Body Lift – focuses on tummy tuck, hips, buttock, outer thighs
- Total Body Lift – both upper and lower body lift performed together
Each individual body lift is customized and will require a distinct combination of procedures to restore your unique body shape to the contours that make you feel most comfortable in your own skin.
