The Rise in Post Weight Loss Lifts
That extra skin often serves as a reminder of the body you used to have, and for many, that’s a pain they don’t want to relive. Thanks to advancements in the safety and price of plastic surgery, many of those that have experience substantial weight loss are have opted for body contouring plastic surgery as a way to complete their weight loss and feel more pride in their accomplishment.
Post-weight loss surgery has been on the rise. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, several popular surgeries for those that have undergone extensive weight loss have increased by a significant percentage over the past year alone:
- Lifts (including Thigh Lifts, Arm Lifts, and Breast Lifts) have increased by nearly 10%.
- Tummy Tucks have increased by 4%.
- Liposuction increased by 5% and more.
Each of these is a very common procedure among post-weight loss individuals that are looking to reshape their body. At Body Lift Surgery Center, we have noticed this increased ourselves, with more and more men and women across the country seeking out our plastic surgery and body contouring services as a way to finish off their shape after weight loss.
The Cause of the Rise in Plastic Surgeries
Those numbers may not seem large, but they represent thousands of individuals and they are an increase from 2013, which was also one of the highest weight loss surgery years on record, so the numbers are far more meaningful than they may seem.
Now, not all of the increase is due to the popularity of the surgery. Another reason for the increase is because more and more people are choosing healthier lifestyles to lose weight, or engaging in medical weight loss like those that we provide at Body Lift Surgery Center.
But there is most certainly a component of this that comes from acceptance of the value of body lift and other plastic surgery procedures for not only shaping the body, but also finally achieving that greater body confidence that motivates people to lose weight in the first place.
