OVERVIEW

The upper body lift is performed using intravenous sedation combined with local anesthesia while patients remain sleep during the procedure.The exact procedure for an upper body lift varies widely due to the different needs of patients. In general, it begins with an arm lift, which requires an incision on the inner aspect of the arm. The incision may go from the elbow to the underarm, depending on how much skin needs to be removed. Additional incisions are made around the areolas and down the crease under the breasts for the breast lift and near the bra line for the back lift. Excess skin is removed via the incisions, and the underlying tissue is recontoured. The remaining skin is pulled to tighten it, and then the incisions are closed up and sometimes drains are inserted.

Recovery

It’s important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion or motion during the time of healing. Dr. Ricardo Vega will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

RESULTS

The upper body lift are visible almost immediately. It may take as long as one to two years for the final results to fully develop.Some visible scars will remain, but the overall results are long lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness

Post Bariatric Procedure (LOWER BODY LIFT)

OVERVIEW

Lower body lift is performed using intravenous sedation combined with local anesthesia while patients remain sleep during the procedure. Lower body lifts are surgical procedures and they require extensive incisions. Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as surgical judgment. One common technique of complete lower body lift uses incisions similar to a bikini pattern to tighten the abdomen, groin, waist, thigh and buttock in one procedure. An incision around the body removes an apron of excess skin and fat and repositions and tightens tissues.Surgical body lifts may require liposuction to achieve an improved contour.
