Body Contouring Procedures: Give Your Figure a “Lift”
Posted on November 22, 2021 by Dr. Carlos Chacon - Body Contouring, Body Procedures
Many areas of your body show wear and tear as you get older, especially if you have gained and lost a significant amount of weight. Women and men both struggle with sagging skin on their arms, abdomen, thighs and other areas. Age, gravity and lifestyle habits take a toll, but you don’t have to resign yourself to covering up these unsightly areas forever. Lift procedures are designed to eliminate the loose skin holding you back from your dream figure.
At Divino Plastic Surgery, Dr. Carlos Chacon is known for combining plastic surgeries to help you achieve your cosmetic goals for your face and body. One or more of these lift procedures may be right for you.
The breasts often start to droop or sag before other areas of your body because they go through more significant changes, such as pregnancy and breastfeeding. Gravity doesn’t impact only large-breasted women; even smaller-sized breasts droop with time. Breast lift is often combined with breast augmentation with implants or breast reduction. Mommy makeover can include breast surgery, tummy tuck and liposuction to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy figure.
The upper arms are a common concern for our patients. Excess skin and fat deposits on the upper arms are frustrating and often embarrassing. Weight loss and the natural aging process make this “arm flab” worse, but our cosmetic surgeon can remove that excess skin hanging freely around your arms. Dr. Chacon can give you a youthful contour that you are proud to show off at the beach and in clothing that exposes your arms. He often combines liposuction with an arm lift to produce a slimmer profile.
Loose skin on the inner and outer thighs makes many people self-conscious. This area is often stretched due to weight fluctuation, and the skin may not conform to your thinner contour after weight loss because it has lost elasticity. You may choose to wear long pants or dresses to cover your thighs (even in warm weather). Thigh lift removes the loose tissue and elevates drooping skin for a firmer, taut leg appearance.
This procedure is often reserved for people who have accomplished the remarkable feat of massive weight loss. Someone who has had bariatric surgery or lost weight through diet and exercise can get rid of the loose skin and tissue leftover from their heavier days with body lift. The plastic surgery focuses on the abdomen, buttocks and thighs, and can also be combined with arm lift or thigh lift to complete your transformation.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian butt lift does not remove loose skin like other lift procedures. Instead, it provides buttock enhancement by removing fat from another area of your body and re-introducing it into the buttocks. This plastic surgery procedure can address a flat, boxy or small butt or restore the shape of a butt that has lost its youthful fullness. The Brazilian butt lift often uses surplus fat from the abdomen and “love handles.”
Dr. Chacon performs all procedures at an accredited surgical facility. During a consultation, he will help you determine the right plastic surgery procedure(s) to give your figure a “lift” to reach your ideal body shape.
