Sagging skin can be the result of many different effects on the body; weight loss patients can experience sagging skin, along with women who have given birth to their children. Sagging skin can also be a side effect of aging, as we age we lose the collagen and elasticity in our skin which can cause it to sag, and some patient’s skin sags more than others. This excess skin can be removed through body lift surgery.
Body lift surgery focuses on toning the body and helps to tackle those stubborn areas of fat and skin that you cannot shift through weight loss or exercise. The concept of this surgery is to remove, lift and reshape the body.
Consultant Plastic Surgeon Mr Gary Ross offers many different options to tackle your sagging skin and rejuvenate your body’s appearance.
Upper Body Lift
These procedures focus on toning anything on the top half of your body including:
Breasts –An uplift procedure (mastopexy) can be performed if you feel that you have a loss of volume in your chest area and would like to have a fuller, lifted chest.
Arms –If you are suffering with excess skin or fatty tissue in the inner arm area, (more commonly known as ‘bingo wings’) surgery can be performed via liposuction or a skin tightening technique called an arm lift.
Mid back – Via Liposuction.
Lower Body Lift
These procedures focus on toning the lower areas of the body, including:
Tightening of your tummy – This can involve either a full or mini tummy tuck depending on the amount of excess skin in the abdominal area. Mr Ross can also offer a Fleur De Lis tummy tuck, which tackles excess skin in the upper part of the abdomen.
Buttocks – Through Liposuction or lifting.
Thighs – thigh lifting surgery
Full Body Lift
This can be considered if you are looking at toning areas in both the upper and lower body.
Mr Ross’s patients are treated on a case-by-case basis as everyone’s individual needs are different.
