San Diego Body Lift
Our San Diego body lift patients who have lost a significant amount of weight from diet and exercise or more commonly from lap band or gastric bypass procedures, excess skin may result around the entire abdomen. Frequently, this requires me to use “belt” approach, meaning in the distribution of the belt as one continuous scar all the way around the waist. This allows for dramatic improvements in the excess skin on both the front and back of the patient. Over time, we have learned that once one body area is corrected, the other areas nearby can become more noticeable if not properly addressed. Thus, for our patients that have lost a massive weight loss, a body lift has become the procedure of choice.
Additional benefits of this surgery are not just an improvement in your abdomen and waist. The hips and buttocks are lifted from behind resulting in a fuller and shapelier buttock once the skin has been tightened. The combination of removal of excess skin and fat in the lower back with the elevation of the butt and hips serves to further enhance the appearance both in and out of clothes.
