Body Lift After Weight Loss Surgery
Massive weight loss, whether due to a surgical procedure or exercise, has allowed many people to gain control of their health. However, weight loss patients can experience other problems secondary to skin that has been overstretched and has lost elasticity. This thin, excessive skin can cause rashes, infections and can hinder continued exercise programs. Clothing options may also be a problem as a patient may still need to wear larger sizes to help hide the excess skin. Most commonly affected areas include the abdomen, breasts, buttocks, arm, thighs, and neck. Since the skin has been overstretched for a long period of time, it is now incapable of regaining its form and can only be corrected with surgery.
There are several treatment options available for correcting excessive skin on the abdominal wall: paniculectomy, abdominoplasty, extended abdominoplasty, and the lower body lift.
