When you’ve worked hard to lose a significant amount of weight, you deserve to feel good about the way you look. If you’re like many men and women, this means reducing unsightly excess skin for a smoother, firmer appearance. To accomplish this Dr. Ashley K. Lentz performs body lift surgery. She will customize each of the following procedures for your unique anatomy and goals:
- Arm lift surgery sculpts and tightens the upper arms by removing loose skin and isolated areas of fat through incisions that run from the armpits to the elbows. Dr. Ashley K. Lentz takes care to hide the incisions, which fade over time, along the back of the inner arms.
- Buttock and thigh lifts sculpt the inner thighs, outer thighs, buttocks, or a combination of these areas. These procedures can give you firm thighs and buttocks by removing excess skin and fat. Incisions are concealed as much as possible in natural creases and areas covered by clothing.
Dr. Ashley K. Lentz usually uses liposuction to refine the appearance of the tightened areas during an arm lift or thigh-buttock lift.
Dr. Lentz will perform your Body Lift surgery at Advent Health Daytona Beach or Halifax Health Hospital - Port Orange.
Every surgery carries the risk of a complication, including elective cosmetic surgery. Complications are rare, but they do occur. CosmetAssure provides you with insurance coverage in the unlikely event a complication occurs with a board certified plastic surgeon. CosmetAssure is a solution to the lack of coverage for medical complications that can occur during or after your surgery.
What to Expect
Dr. Ashley K. Lentz performs body lift procedures as either an outpatient or inpatient in the hospital with the patient under general anesthesia. Body lift surgery is an extensive procedure involving incisions in different areas of the body. The duration of the procedure depends on the size and number of areas being improved.
The Recovery Process
During recovery after a body lift, patients will need to stay home from work for a time to rest and heal. Bruising and swelling will be present, so it will be necessary to wear post-surgical elastic garments as directed. Pain-control medication and antibiotics will be prescribed.
After surgery, you can expect to return to light activities within about 2 weeks and resume your normal routine, including exercise, within about 1 month.
Your Improved Look
Arm lift and thigh-buttock lift surgery can give you the firm, fit look you have worked hard to attain with weight loss. Also, a breast lift or breast augmentation may also help further improve your new shape. With this potentially life-changing surgery, many patients gain the confidence to wear a greater variety of clothing options and can fully appreciate the improvements from their weight loss.
