Body Lift Munster and Hobart
After massive weight loss, the extra folds of skin can be a real problem for wearing clothes and being as active as you’d like to be. Also, the abdominal wall and the muscles have been stretched out, only adding to the problem.
About the Procedure
One of the most common surgeries used today for this problem is a body lift, sometimes called a belt lipectomy. In this procedure, the excess skin and fat is removed from around your belt line, leaving you with a trim waist line and a scar which is easily hidden. The procedure is usually done as an outpatient and the recovery time is typically between two and three weeks.
Body lift results are immediate, but aren’t fully seen until swelling has gone down and everything has healed. Some patients experience some soreness, bruising, or swelling after surgery. This may last for 2-4 weeks.
