Complete Your Weight Loss Transformation with a Body Lift at Flourish Surgical Arts
You’ve taken the first step towards better health by losing a significant amount of weight with gastric bypass surgery or diet and exercise. But you’re left with unsightly bits of skin that hang where your body stored excess fat. We understand the sense of accomplishment you must be feeling due to your weight loss, but we also understand the frustration you might be feeling about the appearance of your abs, waist, thighs, buttocks, hips, and lower back. Fortunately, Flourish Surgical Arts performs body lifts in Denver for patients looking to tighten the skin on their body and show off their new figure at the pool or beach.
Who Should Have a Body Lift?
A body lift combines two procedures, tummy tuck and butt lift. Body lifts address excess skin and fat around the entire torso. Patients who have recently lost a large amount of weight are great candidates for this surgery because the lost fat leaves stretched and sagging skin.
- Patients with significantly loose soft tissue anywhere on their body.
- Healthy patients without medical conditions that might impede recovery or increase risk factors.
- Individuals with positive goals and a realistic expectation of what they will look like following the surgery.
- Individuals who are committed to leading a healthy and active lifestyle throughout their lives.
Liposuction is typically also performed on the outer thighs and lower back to provide additional contouring. This procedure is one of Dr. Nesiba’s favorites because it treats so many areas:
- Inner/Outer thighs
- Lower back
Dr. Nesiba Will Carefully Explain What to Expect During Recovery
Because of the amount of work we do to your body, Dr. Nesiba recommends anticipating a recovery period of two to six weeks. Most patients can return to non-strenuous work, and lite exercise, such as walking after two to three weeks, but you should avoid strenuous exercise or work for six weeks. Keeping your incisions free from excessive force, friction, or motion during your recovery period is crucial to the success of the procedure. If you have any questions about a body lift procedure and you’re in the Denver-area, contact us today and schedule a consultation. Dr. Nesiba has the experience needed to advise you on the best way forward.
