It’s been one of the hardest things you have ever done, but you have managed to lose a major amount of weight. You were extremely overweight and now you have trimmed yourself down to your goal weight. It’s time to celebrate your victory. There is only one problem. You have excess fat and skin that is still hanging on. When your body has been stretched out and weighed down by excess fat for so long, it may not snap back on its own. Fortunately, Dr. Jeneby may be able to help you with a body lift. This procedure could help you to shape your body after intense weight loss, pregnancy or signs of aging has brought about unwanted changes.
Understanding a Body Lift
A body lift will focus on your area of need. It may be an upper body lift, a mid-body lift or a lower body lift. In some cases, it may mean that you need a combination of procedures. When you have been excessively overweight, it stretches your skin beyond its normal demands. Even though you may have lost as much weight as you needed to lose, your skin can become less elastic. In the end, you can have major problems with sagging skin in trouble areas.
Excess skin isn’t the only problem. You could also find yourself dealing with deposits of fat that are clinging to trouble areas on your body. Diet and exercise may not be enough to get rid of them, especially when you were obese. If you can’t get rid of those resistant pockets of fat on your own, a body lift could help you.
