A way to effectively deal with sagging skin or excess fat is through body lift surgery, which also improves the tone and shape of the tissue supporting the skin and fat. Depending on the location, this surgery can be performed in different areas, including the upper, lower, or mid-body such as the abdominal area, thighs, or buttocks. It is highly customizable but it does require certain prerequisites. These include having lost about thirty to fifty percent of peak weight, ensuring a stable weight is maintained, and also maintaining a solid diet and exercise regimen with the right nutrition.
It’s worth noting that body lift surgery is not intended solely for excess fat removal. A patient may opt for liposuction which can get rid of excess fat deposits provided the skin has good elasticity and can naturally conform to the new contour of the body. However, if skin elasticity is poor, body lift techniques combined with liposuction can prove effective.
