Weight loss surgery is incredibly effective at helping people lose a significant amount of weight in a short period of time and deserves to be applauded for the amazing results it can produce. However, along with significant weight loss can come excessive amounts of sagging or loose skin and stubborn deposits of excess fat that simply refuse to respond to diet and exercise.
Loose skin not only detracts from your appearance, it can make choosing clothing difficult and interfere with physical activities. You have clearly committed to weight loss and you deserve to enjoy the full benefits your new body offers. Estero board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña can customize a body lift to address your problem areas and provide you with the toned and firm appearance you have already worked so hard to achieve.
What a Body Lift Addresses
There are two types of body lifts:
- A lower body lift which addresses the thighs, buttocks, tummy, and lower back
- An upper body lift which addresses the chest/breasts and middle/upper back
With this procedure Dr. Peña will remove cellulite and stubborn deposits of fat from the treatment areas before using excision to remove unnecessary skin. If you are having a lower body lift, he will also tighten abdominal muscles to improve core strength and further tone your stomach, hips, and waist.
Restoring your body to its ideal shape and optimal health often requires a combined approach. After you have reached your goal weight, it may be necessary to consider a body lift procedure to finalize your initial results. During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Peña, all of your options will be discussed and those best suited to meet your needs will be determined.
If you are considering a body lift after significant weight loss in the Estero, Florida area, please contact Manuel Peña, M.D. today to schedule your initial consultation.
