Body Lift Aesthetics
A body lift is a medical technique that involves a surgical intervention to contour and firm loose drooping skin on various regions of the body. It is frequently used on individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight. In other circumstances, a person's skin may become droopy when tissue elasticity declines. A variety of variables, including age, excessive sun exposure, poor diet, and even heredity, can cause skin tissue to lose its firmness and flexibility. People suffering from sagging skin in various places of their bodies can apply to body lift aesthetics. Let’s now look at what body lift aesthetics involve?
What does a Body Lift Involve?
Body lift aesthetics involve many different types of lift aesthetics. The tummy tuck, bilateral/lateral thigh lift, and butt lift, are the three surgeries that make up a standard body lift.
The first aesthetic operation of body lift is a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure used to improve the abdomen's appearance. The operation takes from 2 to 5 hours. The procedure is comparable to a cesarean section, except the incision is significantly longer. An undercut suture is used to close the incision line after surgery. The surgical region is kept wrapped to prevent bleeding and swelling following the operation.
Legs are prone to the development of sagging skin tissues. The gravity action and age cause leg skin to lose its flexibility. During thigh lift surgery, excess skin folds and fattening on the top and inner sides of the legs are eliminated. Before leg stretching surgery, patients are given a local anesthetic. It's also decided whether or not liposuction should be done before the treatment. Stitches are placed after the skin is removed by stretching the leg in the incision. A procedure limited to the inguinal region can be conducted on patients with plenty of skin.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian butt lift is a term used to describe the aesthetic procedures used to shape the hip area and ensure that it has a full and steep appearance. Patients who want their bottoms to look like a Brazilian hip or butt are put under general anesthesia for the procedure. The procedure could take up to three hours. The hip may be difficult to lie on for the first 15 days after the treatment. The average healing time is two months.
Who is Eligible for a Body Lift?
A body lift is best for those who are of normal weight and have accumulated excess skin and/or fat all over their bodies. It is critical to maintaining weight stability for at least a year, preferably longer. Nonsmokers who are in generally good health and who maintain a stable weight through a commitment to a healthy diet and lifestyle are the ideal candidates for a body lift. Those who have a significant medical history should share it during the initial appointment to determine if they are a good fit.
After the Procedure
The effects of a body lift are immediate and dramatic, and they will continue to improve as the swelling and bruising after the surgery subside. You won't need a catheter, and you'll be able to eat, drink, and move around as soon as the anesthetic wears off. The extent of post-operative care for a complete body lift depends on the contoured areas of the body. After surgery, you should arrange for someone to pick you up and have some support at home. You should avoid overstretching in the first week and use a support garment for the next 4-6 weeks after surgery.
Cost of Body Lift Aesthetics
A body lift is a substantial procedure in terms of cosmetic surgery, and the price reflects that. Since body lift involves many different operations cost also vary according to these procedures. Every procedure has its own terms and options. The best way to find out about the body lift is to consult your doctor. Additional procedures wanted by the patient like an arm lift or a back lift can also contribute to the price of a body lift aesthetic. You can get more information by contacting us!
