The most successful results when using liposuction to remove excess fat occur when the skin can shrink back and smoothly cover the area being treated. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and may no longer allow just the removal of the fat by liposuction to recreate the smooth, even, contours of youth on our hips, thighs, and abdomens. Especially in the abdominal area, there may be excess skin and muscle looseness due to weight fluctuations, and for many patients, multiple childbirths. The most disappointing results following simple liposuction occur when the fat has been removed, but the skin does not shrink back smoothly and evenly.
Abdominoplasty adds the tightening of muscles and removal of excess skin to the equation and can work beautifully for those patients who need repair only of the abdomen.
The Cosmetic Body Lift encompasses all facets of body contouring, including liposuction and abdominoplasty, and addresses all of these concerns in one procedure. For those who are striving to restore the body they had in their youth, the Cosmetic Body Lift provides an effective and longer-lasting result you will enjoy for a lifetime.
