Body Lift Surgery

Body Lift Surgery

Obesity surgery enables rapid and massive weight loss in morbidly obese patients and is performed by general surgeons. After reaching their ideal weight, these patients seek solutions for their sagging skin excess. Almost all over the body, skin sagging occurs on the arms, abdomen and waist area, buttocks and thighs. Patients with a body mass index of 25 and below should consult a plastic surgery specialist to resolve these complaints. Why do I use the imperative, because in a study conducted in the United States, it was reported that patients who had body shaping surgeries after gastric bypass both improved their quality of life and did not gain weight again.

    What is done in 360 degree body lift surgery?

    Under general anesthesia, both the saggy abdominal skin and the sagging skin in the waist area are removed and the waist and abdomen are reshaped. The incision made on the anterior abdominal wall in such a way that it remains within the bikini area moves from the sides towards the waist area and wraps the whole body 360 degrees. Thanks to this incision, both the excess skin is removed and the sagging butt, pubis area is suspended. The diastasis between the abdominal muscles is tightened. The belly button is renewed and moved to its new place. Drains will be placed before the surgical incisions are closed.Under general anesthesia, both the saggy abdominal skin and the sagging skin in the waist area are removed and the waist and abdomen are reshaped.

    How should you prepare for 360 degree body lift surgery?

    Before the operation, you must reach your ideal weight and stay at this weight for at least 6 months.  You should stop smoking at least 4 weeks before.  In the last ten days, drugs and similar substances that can dilute the blood should be avoided.

     Painkillers such as Apranax, Voltaren, Vermidon (Minoset, Novalgin can be used when pain relief is required).  Consumption of multivitamin pills containing substances such as Ginseng, Ginko Biloba, CO-enzyme Q, herbal products such as green tea, flaxseed, cherry stalk, tomato seed and all weight loss products should be stopped 10 days before.

    What awaits you after the surgery?

    Tummy tuck is not a very painful operation and post-operative pain is relieved with routine painkillers.  For the first 10 days after the surgery, you must lie down with the knees pulled to the abdomen and the waist bent.  If possible, it is necessary to stand up on the same day or the next day after the surgery and you should walk forward with a bent waist.  After 2 weeks, you can walk in an upright position.  In addition, you must wear a special corset for 6 weeks after the surgery.  You can return to sports activities after 6 weeks.

    What are the risks of this surgery?

    Deciding to have plastic surgery is a purely personal decision.  You should decide on this surgery by talking to your doctor and making a benefit-risk analysis.  Complications of liposuction include anesthesia risks, bruising, changes in skin sensation, asymmetries, contour irregularities, edema, and delayed wound healing.  Since the removed sagging skin tissue is too much, there may be asymmetries after the first surgery and these can be corrected with revision surgeries.

    Are the results of this surgery last a lifetime?

    After this surgery, you should continue your healthy lifestyle.  You should not give up on sports and diet.  If you gain weight, the appearance of a thin waist and a tight abdomen may be impaired.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Recovery from body lift surgery can take several weeks to months. Patients can expect swelling, bruising, and discomfort during the initial phase. Wearing compression garments, following post-operative instructions, and attending follow-up appointments are crucial for a smooth recovery. Strenuous activities should be avoided during the healing process.

    Body lift surgery involves making incisions strategically placed to remove excess skin and fat from various areas. The surgeon will then tighten the underlying tissues to create a more sculpted contour. The procedure may be done in multiple stages or combined with other body contouring surgeries, depending on the extent of correction needed.

    Ideal candidates for body lift surgery are individuals who have experienced significant weight loss, either through bariatric surgery or lifestyle changes, and have excess skin and tissue that cannot be addressed through diet and exercise alone. It is essential for candidates to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results.

    While initial improvements can be noticeable soon after the procedure, it may take several months for the swelling to subside and the tissues to fully settle. The final results of body lift surgery typically become more apparent within 6 to 12 months post-surgery.

    The results of body lift surgery can be long-lasting, especially if the patient maintains a stable weight and adopts a healthy lifestyle. However, natural aging and significant fluctuations in weight can affect the outcome over time. Leading a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can help maintain the results.
