Service Description

Enjoy Your New Body – You’ve Earned It!
Post-bariatric Body Lift Mexico

Loose, excess skin can prevent a post-bariatric surgery patient from completely enjoying his or her new figure. A body lift treats this excess skin, which may hang from the abdomen, back, hips, thighs, arms, or buttocks. The result is skin that tightly hugs and flatters the body’s improved contours. Specific body lift treatment plans vary by patient; in other words, the procedure is tailored to each patient’s individual needs and goals.

Enjoy Your New Body – You’ve Earned It!

Post-bariatric surgery body lift procedures are best for men and women who have undergone weight loss treatment and who have loose, soft tissue in one or several areas of the body as a result. If skin is excessively stretched over time, it will lose its elasticity, thus the need for cosmetic treatment after dramatic weight loss. Candidates for this procedure should be in good health, free of any medical conditions which could impede the healing process or increase the risk of potential complications. Candidates should also not smoke, and should lead a healthy lifestyle that incorporates good dietary and fitness habits.

Post-bariatric surgery body contouring encompasses several different techniques, depending on the individual patient’s needs and goals. For example, the plastic surgeon may perform a lower body lift that includes the hips, thighs, buttocks, back, and abdomen. During the procedure, the surgeon makes a circumferential incision around the body. Excess fat and skin is removed, and the remaining tissue is repositioned and tightened. Sutures may be placed within the underlying tissues to form and support new contours. The incisions are closed with sutures, adhesives, or tape

A body lift is not meant to remove excess fat alone. In cases where the skin has good elasticity and will conform naturally to new body contours, the plastic surgeon may use liposuction to remove fat deposits. If skin elasticity is not good, the surgeon may combine body lift and liposuction techniques.

Scarring is inevitable with a post-bariatric surgery body lift procedure, but our team of surgeons in Cancun, Mexico will take every precaution to ensure that the scars are placed inconspicuously around the body. Additionally, they will fade with time.

Body Lift Benefits

Body lift surgery improves the shape and tone of tissue that supports fat and skin; therefore, the best benefit of a post-bariatric surgery body lift is skin tone that better “fits” around the body. It may even reduce cellulite, which is a dimpled, irregular skin surface. Patients should be able to notice the results right away, and as long as the patient does not gain or lose too much weight, they will last for many years –. Gaining weight will put additional stress on the skin, stretching it. Losing weight will cause the skin to sag further.
