A body lift procedure is a type of surgical procedure that is used to remove both excess skin and fat from the body. The surgery can be performed on any area of the body, but is commonly performed on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. Body lifts are typically performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as liposuction or breast augmentation. At Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey in Paramus, NJ, patients can work with Dr. Frank Ferraro to find out more about this and other body procedures available at his office.
What are the benefits of a body lift?
A body lift can provide many benefits, both aesthetic and functional. Aesthetically, a body lift can give you a more youthful appearance by tightening loose, sagging skin. It can also help to improve your overall body contour by removing excess skin and fat. Functionally, a body lift can also help to improve your mobility and range of motion by removing excess skin that may be causing you discomfort.
What is the recovery time for a body lift?
The recovery time for the body lift varies depending on the extent of the procedure. In most situations, you can expect to spend 5-7 days in the hospital. You may also need to take 4-6 weeks off from work or your normal activities. During this time, it is important to take things easy and avoid strenuous activity. Your surgeon at Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey will give you specific instructions on how to care for your surgical incisions and what activities you need to avoid during your recovery period.
What are the risks of a body lift surgery?
As with any surgical procedure, there are a few risks associated with a body lift. These risks include bleeding, infection, and reactions to anesthesia. You can help reduce your risk of complications by choosing a qualified surgeon who has experience performing body lifts. You should also make sure to follow all of your surgeon’s instructions before and after the procedure.
