Lower Body Lift in Westchester County
Lower Body Lift: What Is It?
Lower body lift is a sophisticated plastic surgery procedure that helps improve the appearance of the lower body — the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. During the body lift procedure, Dr. Greenwald, removes excess skin and fatty tissue deposits from the lower body, creating a more proportionate, slimmer lower body appearance. After the procedure, the vast majority of Dr. Greenwald’s body lift patients are delighted with their results, and their only regret is that they did not pursue this treatment sooner.
Body Lift After Major Weight Loss
While body lift can be performed for various aesthetic reasons, patients who seek body lift often include men and women who have lost a massive amount of weight. Whether achieved through diet and exercise or through surgical weight loss procedures, massive weight loss often leaves behind folds of excess skin. The excess tissues tend to be more visible in the areas where the excess pounds were stored, such as the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. While isolated procedures, such as thigh lift, buttock lift and tummy tuck, might improve the appearance of these body areas, the best results are typically achieved through a more holistic surgical approach, such as lower body lift.
When performing the lower body lift, Dr. Greenwald creates an incision in the lower torso area. He uses this opening to carefully remove the excess skin and fatty tissues and gently stretch the remaining skin to create tauter, slimmer body contours. In addition to enhancing the appearance of Dr. Greenwald’s body lift patients, this treatment also delivers health benefits, as it helps eliminate skin infections that often develop under the redundant skin folds.
Lower Body Lift and Other Body Contouring Procedures
While lower body lift is a very effective body contouring procedure, not every individual is a body lift candidate. Depending on their skin condition, overall body stature, health and aesthetic desires, some patients might be able to achieve their goals by undergoing another, less invasive procedure. For instance, women who have experienced multiple pregnancies and desire to remove the post-pregnancy “belly pouch” are often good tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck candidates. Mothers who also desire to restore the perkiness of their breasts may undergo breast lift in conjunction with tummy tuck — a combination treatment known as mommy makeover. Similarly, individuals who experience modest fatty tissue deposits in the lower body area might be able to achieve a slimmer look by undergoing a thorough liposuction procedure.
