There is nothing worse than walking around, feeling as though your loose skin is a source of embarrassment for yourself or a distraction for other people. If you have experienced dramatic weight loss or are reclaiming your body after childbirth, it is likely that you may need to address the sagging skin that refuses to bounce back into shape, even with a healthy diet and exercise. Here is what we recommend:
A procedure that reshapes the thighs, leaving behind a smoother, sexier shape, a thigh lift is specifically designed to remove excess skin in this area. Depending on your body’s unique needs, you may require an inner or outer thigh lift. However, your doctor can determine the best option for you.
More commonly known as a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty lifts, pulls down and re-drapes the abdominal wall to tighten and define the waist. The lining of the abdominal walls is also tightened to provide a flat, trim stomach that diet and exercise have not been able to reach.
An excellent option for women who have noticed their breasts are no longer as perky and firm as they remember, a breast lift will remove excess skin in the breasts, raise the height of the nipple and reshape the breast to give it a more youthful appearance.
If you have loosely hanging skin around the neck, it may make you look older than you feel. The good news is that a neck lift can quickly address this concern, creating the desired contour and holding the skin in place with sutures.
If excess skin and fat hanging from the upper arm has you feeling less youthful and toned than you would like, an arm lift can easily remedy the situation. Often done in combination with liposuction, an arm lift can resculpt the upper arm, so you feel confident in short sleeves once again.
Most of us will experience sagging skin and jowls in the face as we begin to age. During the facelift procedure, the facial skin is pulled taught and any excess skin is removed, allowing you to turn back the clock and look years younger.
A body lift can include many of the procedures listed above to give you a more comprehensive body improvement. Since you will have multiple surgeries done at the same time, this can allow for a shorter overall recovery period, and greater long-term satisfaction, as you start to see improvement in not one, but many areas of the body.
