As we age, our skin loses elasticity, resulting in a less than ideal body contour. At Palms Wellington Plastic Surgery in Wellington, we are here to help you achieve your ideal form at any age. Find out some of the most common reasons to get a body lift in the West Palm Beach area.
What is a Body Lift?
A body lift in West Palm Beach, formally known as a belt lipectomy, reshapes and raises your body contours. It can be combined with liposuction if you have an excess of fat around the lower abdomen, waist, inner or outer thighs, buttocks or hips. The procedure is often undergone by women who have stretched out skin due to multiple pregnancies.
There are many benefits to body lifts in West Palm Beach. This procedure tightens or removes excess skin and eliminates excess fatty tissue. It helps people who have gone through multiple pregnancies or bariatric procedures to feel confident again. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, so you are asleep and comfortable during the entire operation.
The length of the procedure depends on the complexity of it and if any other procedures are being performed. Gravity and the aging process continue after the procedure, but you can expect a significant improvement to the contour of your body if you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for this procedure are in good general health, abstain from nicotine, and have adequate skin elasticity. They are also close to their goal weight, have maintained their body weight for a set amount of time, and are committed to keeping the weight off.
