Is a Body Lift Right for Me?*
A body lift is an ideal procedure for you if you meet any of the following conditions:
- You have stubborn areas of sagging skin (such as around your waist or thighs).
- You have excess skin around your upper arms after extensive weight loss.
You should not undergo a body lift if you’ve recently had bariatric surgery or a lap band until your weight stabilizes. You should also not have a body lift done to save a failing relationship or done under the pressure of a friend, family member, or spouse. Change the shape of your body for yourself!
What to Expect During Your Consultation
Dr. Aycock will take the time to go over your complete medical history to ensure there are no conflicts or issues that could arise during or after your plastic surgery procedure. He will discuss your goals and anticipated outcome of your surgery, as well as answer any questions you may have. Depending on the type of procedure you plan to have done, he may examine the area being treated. Every consultation is done with the utmost professional courtesy and thorough explanation of each step to ensure that you are informed and comfortable with the process. Once you feel fully assured and satisfied with the answers, you can move forward with scheduling your surgery.
How Is a Body Lift Performed?
A lower body lift is an abdominoplasty surgery that also addresses the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, and waist. Because the surgical procedure is extensive, you may be in the operating room for several hours and recovery may take several weeks. However, the procedure provides immediate, dramatic results. Not only will you be pleased with the way you look, but you’ll be more comfortable. Removing excess skin will make you feel lighter and make your clothes fit better.
If you’ve had lap banding or gastric bypass surgery, you shouldn’t pursue body lift surgery until your weight has been steady for at least three months.
A brachioplasty, or an arm lift, is designed to remove excess, sagging skin from your upper arm. The result is a shapelier arm you’re proud to show off.
A breast lift, or mastopexy, raises and reshapes sagging breasts. Dr. Aycock has years of experience performing breast lifts. He will work with you to determine the best type of breast lift to give you perky, full breasts. Many women choose to add breast implants during a breast lift who desires more fullness.
If you have loose skin on your legs that jiggles when you walk, you’re a prime candidate for a thigh lift. A thigh lift will result in sleeker, tighter legs by removing cellulite and excess skin. Liposuction may also be included in the procedure to remove stubborn fat deposits.
Preparing for a Body Lift
You may be asked to have lab testing or a medical evaluation done to rule out any external issues that may interfere with your body lift. You may also be asked to start, discontinue, or adjust your current medication schedule. You’ll recover more quickly if you stop smoking, and you should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, or any herbal supplements as these can increase bleeding.
Body Lift Recovery*
Depending on the area(s) being treated, you may be asked to wear an elastic bandage to help reshape the tightened skin. Recovery may take several weeks if you’ve had an extensive number of areas treated. During your consultation, Dr. Aycock will listen to your concerns and questions and outline a plan of action for recovery.
How Much Does a Body Lift Cost?
The cost of a body lift in San Francisco varies depending on the areas being treated. Dr. Aycock provides convenient financing options, including CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending®; to help cover the cost of your surgery, and you may be approved in as little as an hour.
