Are you looking for a post-bariatric body lift in Los Angeles? This increasingly popular plastic surgery procedure provides weight loss patients with the finishing touches on their total body transformation. So how does a post-bariatric body lift in Los Angeles work?
What is in a Total Body Lift?
The total body lift is an extensive combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to completely eliminate excess skin from head to toe, in a 360 degree fashion. If you go to an experienced body contouring master, they will be able to treat the entire body in one operating period to significantly reduce recovery time (one operation, one recovery) and surgical fees.
A total body lift for a patient who has severe skin redundancy everywhere may include the following: upper body lift to remove upper back skin, breast lift with or without implants, full tummy tuck with or without muscle repair, lower body lift, buttock/thigh lift, arm lift, and a medial thigh tuck.
With so many surgical excisions, patients are often concerned about the appearance of incision scars. You are encouraged to look through the body contouring galleries of the founder of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute, Arian Mowlavi MD FACS, to see his technique for minimizing this.
First, the incisions are hidden where ever possible (tummy tuck scar and butt tuck in the bikini line, upper body lift in the bra line). Next, the visible incision lines are smooth and accent the body where possible; for example, the lower body lift scar can highlight and frame the buttock like the patient seen here).
Finally, there is a strict postoperative regimen that is followed to facilitate optimal healing. Scars will typically take 3 months to heal up to 60% and will be 80% healed in half a year.
