If you have recently experienced significant weight loss, congratulations are in order! Lowering your weight and avoiding obesity can help you stay healthy and live longer, while reducing your risks of many different medical conditions. However, even with the weight loss, you may not be ready to show off your new body. This is typically because patients who have experienced significant weight loss often deal with excess skin that remains. The excess skin left behind after losing this weight can be troublesome. It may cause rashes and irritation as it rubs against the skin of the body, and can increase a patient’s risk of bacterial infections. It can also cause patients to feel self-conscious in more revealing clothing because of the sagging skin left behind.
With the assistance of Dr. Frank Ferraro at Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey, patients can find their self-confidence once again with a body lift procedure. The body lift is a plastic surgery treatment that is used by a doctor to remove excess skin that might be rubbing and irritating. It can also help in tightening and toning the body after weight loss so patients can confidently dress in more revealing clothing to show off their recent success!
What happens during a body lift?
First, patients consult with the doctor to determine if they are a proper candidates for this procedure. Dr. Frank Ferraro will listen to a patient’s concerns, and make recommendations as to the areas of the body where skin will need to be removed. During the procedure, incisions are made in areas where scarring will remain disguised or less noticeable to ensure a more natural finished appearance.
