You may be a good candidate for a Body Lift if:
Weight fluctuation has left you with significant skin laxity resulting in enough excess skin to lift, remove, and/or tighten.
Your weight has been stable for a minimum of six months. Once you’ve reached a consistent weight, this will give the surgeon a general idea of how much excess skin needs to be removed or tightened.
You are in good health overall and don’t smoke. The procedures that are involved in a full body lift tend to be complex, and complications can occur. If you suffer from a chronic medical condition, it’s best to speak to your primary care physician to see if this procedure is right for you. If you smoke, most plastic surgeons will ask that you stop smoking entirely, or stop smoking six weeks prior to your procedure, as well as six weeks post-operation.
If you believe you are a good candidate for a Body Lift based on the qualifications outlined above, we suggest you schedule a consultation with Dr. Buchanan to discuss the possibility of a Body Lift and the added benefits it could bring to your life.
