Body Lift Versus Tummy Tuck

Both men and women try so hard to achieve a body shape they can be proud of. And each patient responds differently to weight loss; their journey may not be the same as yours. Because of this, discovering what type of procedure is needed for you specifically is crucial to achieving the body contour you desire.

What Is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a surgical procedure that addresses the excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, buttocks, and thighs. Most patients who choose this surgery are often those who just lost a significant amount of weight. Candidates should be non-smokers in good general health and have been able to maintain a stable body weight for some time. This procedure allows your newly contoured body to be seen in clothing you may not have been comfortable wearing before.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. It also restores muscles in the abdomen that have become weak after a person experiences pregnancy and weight fluctuations. This procedure tightens and firms the underlying muscles. Candidates should be non-smokers in good general health and have realistic expectations.

How Do I Know Which Procedure Is Right for Me?

Deciding between body lift surgery and tummy tuck surgery is a conversation that should take place between you and your doctor. Schedule a consultation, discuss your goals and desires, and listen to all the options available so that you can make your body contour dreams come true. It is important that you know what it is you want, and finding a board-certified plastic surgeon to complete this surgery will make this decision even better. Dr. D’Souza has the education and knowledge to explain each procedure in detail so that you can decide the right body contouring procedure for you.
