Full Body Lift
Conveniently located to serve Houston
Body lift is an extremely effective plastic surgery procedure for patients with excess skin, fat, and other tissues that linger after substantial weight loss. Depending on the location of the surplus skin, patients may choose to undergo either an upper, mid, or lower body lift. For patients with significant amounts of excess skin throughout the midsection, lower body, and extremities, a combination of these techniques called full or total body lift may be the best option.

Full Body Lift Candidates
Because a full body lift is a complex procedure, you should think about it carefully before going ahead with it. People who have lost a large amount of weight, usually after bariatric surgery, are ideal candidates. After putting in a lot of effort to lose weight, people who want to get rid of stubborn excess skin and pockets of stubborn fat can have the operation.
Full body lift surgery is suitable for patients who are determined to lead a healthy and nutritious lifestyle following the procedure, as well as get plenty of exercise. Candidates for the surgery also need to have realistic expectations and a positive attitude about how the treatment will go.
The Full Body Lift Procedure
General anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort before beginning your full body lift. The placement and pattern of your incisions will mostly be determined by the body parts being addressed.
Once the extra skin and fat are removed through the incisions, Dr. Marcos will proceed to tighten the surrounding tissue to complete the body lift. Finally, the incisions will be stitched and bandaged.
Full Body Lift Results and Recovery
The results of a full body lift are immediate and substantial, and they will continue to become evident as the swelling and bruising after the surgery subside.
The extent of post-operative care for a full body lift depends on the areas of the body that were addressed. In general, it entails refraining from heavy or intense exercise for a set amount of time, as prescribed by Dr. Marcos. After surgery, it might be necessary to stay home from work, and wearing a supportive garment to help reduce edema will be encouraged.
