For many of us, improving ourselves is a long journey; for most everyone really. Whether you have undergone surgery for your dramatic weight loss, or have done it the completely natural way, after a certain amount of time and weight, your skin can only regain so much elasticity. Which can be very disappointing for those that have had the weight loss. Nothing is more disappointing than losing a massive amount of weight and not having your body in clothing reflect that weight loss because of excess loose skin and stubborn fatty deposits. It is not uncommon for fat to deposit around the midsection after dramatic weight loss (Einstein Medical, 2015).
According to doctors, each patient must be treated individually because there are not any two bodies alike. That said, in most cases, liposuction alone will not deem the desired results if you have excess loose skin. Dr. Richard Arabitg, that performs plastic surgery in Orlando at Plastic Surgery Central Florida, commonly sees patients that have had the victory of massive weight loss, yet hardly reflect that. There is not any generalized answer to address which type of body lift in Orlando you should choose. What is essential, is that you feel confident in the doctor’s preference for your body. Here, we will provide you with the information on the various types of body lift procedures that are available to you (Einstein Medical, 2015).
Highly dependent on the location of the excess skin following your dramatic weight loss, patients can select to have an upper body, mid body, or lower body lift. However, as a body lift is a highly effective solution to the excess loose skin removal, it is very common for patients to have a full, or total body lift for the best aesthetic results. A total body lift gives the patient a complete body contour, ultimately putting the finishing touches on a well-deserved accomplishment during a self-improvement journey (Einstein Medical, 2015).
Lower Body Lift- A Lower body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a very popular procedure after weight loss. One of the most common places of your body affected from weight loss is the lower half; thighs, hips, and the buttocks. A lower body lift does far more than remove the excess skin, it also lifts the buttocks, giving your body a more tightly contoured look and feel (Einstein Medical, 2015).
Mid Body Lift- The mid body lift, also known as Torsoplasty, addresses the excess skin and fatty deposits along the abdominal region. The Mid Body Lift, includes the areas addressed in the lower body lift in addition to the abdominal region. This is preferred by most patients because focusing on the abdomen, thighs, hips, and buttocks together, leaves the patient post-surgery, with continuous smooth lines starting at the waist and on down (Einstein Medical, 2015).
Upper Body Lift- This procedure is not as commonly performed on its own. It addresses the areas of the breasts and arms. Most patients that seek to address these areas, tend to request the Total Body Lift.
Total/Full Body Lift- Total or Full Body Lifts are highly beneficial to patients that have undergone a massive amount of weight loss. Generally, patients see the loose skin all over their bodies once they have lost at least 50% of their peak weight (Einstein Medical, 2015).
A total body lift addresses the arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks. Understand that this procedure is very complex, requires a proficient surgeon with the skillset and experience to gauge properly. Dr. Richard Arabitg has perform this procedure, and all body lift procedures, numerous times with great success. The recovery time for a more comprehensive procedure as the full body lift, is much longer, and should be taken into consideration. It is not unheard of, for a surgeon to do a full body lift in two or more sessions for an easier recovery (Einstein Medical, 2015).
Note: Dr. Arabitg must customize your procedure to fit your body style (apple, pear shape, etc.) for you to achieve the best results. His goal is the same as your goal: to achieve a rejuvenated, smooth, and trim appearance to finalize your body transformation. His expertise come highly requested, and know that he will not perform a procedure he does not believe will deem at least a 90% improvement rate for the patient.
