BODY LIFT(BELT PLASTY)

Body Lift in Ahmedabad,Gujarat.

A body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a procedure to raise and reshape unsightly, sagging body contours. During the aging process, skin loses some elasticity, causing the mid-section to lose its natural shape and firmness. This procedure is designed to remove loose skin and related fat deposits, thus, providing a more youthful appearance. A body lift can be applied to the lower torso and upper legs including the abdomen, waist, inner/outer thighs, buttocks, and/or hips. Liposuction may also be completed in conjunction with a body lift.

A body lift in Ahmedabad,Gujarat, Colombia improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess sagging fat and skin are removed to treat conditions caused in part by poor tissue elasticity.

Who is a good candidate for this Procedure?

Dramatic weight loss through bariatric surgery can leave you with a lot of unsightly saggy skin and excess fatty tissue that cannot be toned through exercise. Every patient is different, and people’s skin copes with weight loss in different ways. Factors such as age, genetics, general health and lifestyle affect your skin’s elasticity, which is why we offer bespoke surgical packages to make up your individual body lift.

At The Aakar Plastic Surgery Center, we offer a range of body-lifting procedures and can tailor make surgical packages that suit you and can combine such procedures as a tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, buttock lift and breast uplift. All this provides under care of the best plastic surgeon in Ahmedabad,Gujarat.

Procedure

As our best plastic & COSMETIC surgeon will discuss with you what body lifting procedures are right for you, but here are some examples:

An upper body lift concentrates on the back, abdomen and breasts. Back fat rolls are removed and the waist is made narrower. Excess skin under the breasts can also be removed and tightened. This procedure can include a breast uplift for women, or a male breast reduction for men.
A lower body lift begins with a belt like incision above the buttocks and outer thighs, followed by peforming the tummy tuck. This type of surgery is also known as a belt lipectomy, excess skin is removed from the tummy and then restitched and tightened. Liposuction is also often used to eliminate any unwanted fatty tissue.
A thigh lift involves removing excess skin and fat from the inner and outer thigh. Liposuction is often used to eliminate unwanted fatty tissue. Visit our web page for more information.
An arm lift, or bingo wing removal as it is commonly known as, is a procedure which trims away excess skin to leave a slimmer and more toned contour. Liposuction can also be used to eliminate unwanted fatty tissue.
A breast uplift, or otherwise known as a mastopexy, is used on women who have lost volume in their breasts. The nipple can be moved and the breast can be reshaped and lifted to produce a perkier and firmer result. Breast implants can be used if the patient is also unhappy with size.
A buttock lift removes excess skin and fatty tissue and then tightens the remaining skin to give a smoother and pert appearance.

FAQ's

Most patients have body lift after major weight loss. The weight loss process usually stabilizes at about one year, so we look for a fairly stable weight history for this duration of time. Due to the extensive amount of surgery entailed with body contouring after massive weight loss, a person needs to be strong and healthy to tolerate the physical stress of the post-operative recovery period.

Sometimes. If you require just a few procedures such as a breast reduction or breast lift and a tummy tuck, then these two procedures can be done at the same time. However, many body contouring patients, after massive weight loss, request multiple surgical procedures. The amount of surgery and the time needed to complete the procedures may dictate that they be done in two or three stages. At Premium Care Plastic Surgery, our surgeons work together on body contouring cases. Two or three surgeons operating with a specialized team makes surgery much more efficient. This decreases surgical time, discomfort, and complications after surgery, and improves results. This improved efficiency also makes it possible to perform multiple procedures during a short anesthetic time (less than 4 hours), allowing patients to enjoy the benefits of combination procedures without increased anesthetic risks associated with longer procedures. Our patients from Gujarat,India and our international patients undergoing cosmetic surgery after major weight loss love this aspect of our service at Aakar Plastic Surgery.

It depends on what procedures are done. A tummy tuck or a body lift will require the longest recovery. Even so, you can drive a car, return to work or school and do most of your normal activities, other than exercise, usually by two to three weeks after surgery. Exercise can be resumed after six weeks. The breast reduction, medial thigh lift and arm lift require shorter recovery times. After those surgeries, you can drive, return to work or school and do most of your normal activities after one to two weeks, though exercise cannot be started until after six weeks.

No. A primary issue with body contouring after massive weight loss is the excessive amount of skin. This requires removal of skin to obtain a better shape and contour. Most of the incisions, however, will be covered by undergarments and most styles and cuts of clothing. Also, our Scar Management Program at Premium Care Plastic Surgery will give you the tools to optimize your scars.

There are risks with any surgical procedure, and our plastic surgeons are intensely focused on minimizing potential complications. Possible risks of a body lift include delayed wound healing, bleeding, infection, seroma and venous blood clots. We take many precautions to minimize the risk of each of these complications. With diligent care, each of these complications may be treated and still result in a happy outcome from body lift surgery.
