Body Lift

When you've dropped 50, 100, or an even greater number of pounds, you can almost feel the weight being lifted each day. But the same is not true for your skin - practically all men and women who lose a lot of weight are left with areas of sagging skin. Typically, the mid- to lower-body is one of the most prominent areas where this loose skin forms, which is why Dr. Thomas McNemar performs body lift procedures to completely revamp a patient's midsection.

This procedure combines abdominoplasty, thigh lift, and buttock lift for a complete makeover that can span from your upper abdomen to your knees. Also known as a belt lipectomy, the procedure can dramatically transform the look of almost any person who has achieved significant weight reduction.

Request a private consultation where Dr. McNemar will share your options with you and give you his honest, professional opinion on how plastic surgery can help you reach your ultimate weight loss and cosmetic goals.

The Straight Story

You had many goals in mind when you chose weight loss surgery in San Francisco or San Ramon, CA - goals like improving your health and energy, reducing your risk of certain illnesses, and enhancing your self image. It is important to both your comfort and confidence to complete your weight loss journey and remove the excess tissue that serves as a constant reminder of your former self. Dr. McNemar's cosmetic surgery options, including body lift, can help you look your very best.

Body Lift after Weight Loss Surgery near San Ramon, CA

Dr. McNemar performs body lifts in a single surgical session or in stages, depending on patient needs. The primary concern is always patient safety, but as long as the procedures can be performed together safely, Dr. McNemar will perform combination surgery for added convenience and a single recovery period.

During a body lift, Dr. McNemar removes excess skin and fat from the midsection. As you may guess, the body lift often requires extensive incisions to contour this large section of the body, and patients are often left with scarring that encircles the waist. The men and women who undergo body lift feel that this scarring is an acceptable trade-off for increased comfort and a more pleasing appearance. Keep in mind that while scars will continue to lighten, they will remain visible in revealing outfits or when you are not wearing clothes.

Because this is a complicated procedure, you should be sure that any plastic surgeon you choose has experience dealing with the unique needs of post-bariatric patients who are having combination procedures. In addition, you should plan on several weeks of downtime. Dr. McNemar will monitor your recovery closely and give you clearance when he feels you can resume work functions and other normal activities.
