About Body Lift Surgery
Our Connecticut patients often require body lift surgery after significant weight loss because the skin around the abdomen and waist is stretched to the point where it is no longer elastic. Instead of conforming to your new slimmer shape, skin hangs and droops, causing disappointment along with physical problems like rashes and chafing. During a body lift, Dr. Price removes the excess skin with special attention to minimizing and concealing scarring. As part of the body lift, he often performs liposuction to remove remaining pockets of fat.
Many body lift surgeries may be performed with intravenous sedation, a technique that offers total patient comfort without the need for general anesthesia or hospitalization. In such cases, Dr. Price can perform your procedure in his private, fully-licensed operating room, giving you a convenient alternative to hospital facilities. Some patients will require conventional anesthesia and hospital care.
While body lift surgery focuses on the waist and abdominal area, it's likely that you have other areas in need of tightening as well. To meet the unique needs of each patient, Dr. Price can achieve an overall body enhancement by combining a body lift with other cosmetic procedures including:
- Thigh lift
- Buttock lift
- Arm lift
- Breast lift
Because post weight loss patients often require multiple procedures, body lift procedures are not usually performed at the same time. During your confidential consultation, Dr. Price will develop a customized treatment plan that will concentrate on your safety and comfort, and allow for sufficient recovery time between each set of procedures. Dr. Price's ability to design a personalized plan, combined with his skills and compassion, cause many post-weight-patients to choose him over other CT plastic surgeons.
