Body Lift Overview
Body lift is a form of cosmetic surgery performed by a qualified plastic surgeon in order to repair or to improve specific areas of the body. Body lift procedures are a serious matter and should not be entered into lightly. A number of issues need to be understood when one is considering body lift procedures including risks, costs, and the benefits of such procedures. In the past, body lift procedures were relatively unpopular; they were performed after a patient had was able to drop a dramatic amount of weight and was faced with the problem of excess skin. Currently, however, more and more people are getting body lift to augment their appearance and to improve their self-esteem. ??Patients embark on body lift procedures in an effort to improve or augment their appearance, or in order to rectify birth defects of bodily defects that are the result of an injury. A patient desiring body lift may be interested in having a tummy tuck, a breast lift, a breast reduction, a thigh lift, an arm lift, liposuction, buttock lift, lower body lift, or in some instances, multiple procedures. Although body lift can refer to any of the above mentioned procedures, Dr. Siamak Agha believes that the term is best suited for combination procedures or make-overs. As practiced by Dr. Siamak Agha, it is often the combination of multiple procedures that produces the best aesthetic results. One popular example is liposuction of the back and love-handles, buttock lipoaugmentation (Brazilian buttock lift) with the fat that is liposuctioned, High-definition tummy tuck and breast lift.Liposuction is one of the most popular forms of body lift. Liposuction is used to rid the body of stubborn areas of fat. In virtually every body lift case, Dr. Siamak Agha uses liposuction in conjunction with other body lift procedures. Arm Lift is a procedure that redefines the shape and contour of the upper arm and arm pit area. Breast Lifts are common body lift procedures performed on women. A breast lift is often performed on women who have been able to drop a dramatic amount of weight or on older women that have noticed the natural signs of aging affecting their breasts. Upper Body Lift is a procedure that removes significant back tissue laxity that appears as cascading rolls. A Tummy Tuck removes the excess tissue and skin from the area of the abdomen. The muscles of abdomen are tightened, the remaining skin is stretched, a new opening for naval is created. Lower Body Lift is a procedure that is performed together with a belt or circumferential abdominoplasty in Los Angeles and buttock lift. It elevates the lower body, buttock, groin area and outer thighs to improve the contour of the lower body. Buttock Augmentation uses buttock implants or your own fat (Brazilian Buttock Lift) to enhance the fullness of your buttocks. An inner Thigh Lift is a procedure in which excess tissue and skin is removed from the area of the inner thighs. The various body lift procedures have different expected rates of recovery. Recovery time is affected by the patient’s ability to heal, the patient’s willingness to follow doctor’s orders, the extent of the body lift endured, and the health status of the patient. Everyone heals at their own rate, but there are average times expected for proper recovery from body lift.
