Total Body Lift

 

About the Procedure

Patients who have undergone gastric bypass or lap-band surgery often lose 50 to 150 pounds very quickly. A non-gradual weight loss of this magnitude results in excessive sagging skin in multiple areas of the body that cannot be toned with exercise. Frequently the skin sagging is most notable in the thighs, buttocks and abdomen, but may also occur in the arms, face, chest or breasts.

The total body lift is a very effective way to remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin in the affected areas. Body lifts are also used to combat the sagging appearance of skin that occurs naturally with aging.

Although this procedure varies from patient to patient, the typical “total body lift” consists of a thigh lift, buttocks lift, and tummy tuck. The location of each incision is based on the patients needs, and a minimal amount of incisions are used to achieve the desired effect.

General anesthesia is required for this major surgery.

Recovery

Most patients spend a two-night stay after a total body lift. The increased surface area of the body involved in this procedure is more taxing on the body than a localized cosmetic procedure, and will necessitate the use of the PainPump® to help alleviate pain. This device delivers a continuous flow of pain medication to the surgical sites.

Recovery general lasts from two to three weeks. Patients who return to work after a couple weeks may still experience some discomfort.
