Seattle Body Lift
Considering a Body Lift? You’ll need to look for safety and experience
There are several reasons why someone might want to consider body lift surgery in Seattle. It is commonly performed on people who have lost an extensive amount of weight because it helps improve the tone and shape of the body, and removes excess skin that remains after significant weight loss. This procedure can also help you get rid of leftover fat that has been unaffected by diet and exercise.
Body lifting isn’t just for weight loss patients: women who have had children are also good candidates for this procedure, as the abdomen is one of the areas targeted by this body contouring procedure. Finally, some body lift patients have never been overweight, but simply have excess skin due to the natural aging process. Patients can regain a more youthful body appearance through this procedure.
Because body lift surgery is typically quite extensive, it’s critical that patients choose a doctor who operates in a facility with hospital-level safety measures in place. Our private operating suite is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Customizing Your Body Lift in Seattle
As each person’s history and body are very different, body lift patients need an experienced surgeon to assess their needs and tailor a plan just for them. At Anderson Sobel Cosmetic Surgery, Seattle cosmetic surgeon Dr. Sobel offers customized surgical plans to help improve the body where skin elasticity has been lost. Results not only contour the body, but they can also revitalize a patient’s self-confidence.
Your body lift journey will begin with a consultation and personalized surgical planning. Dr. Sobel and your patient concierge will listen to your goals to make sure this is the right procedure for you. Your surgery can be tailored to your needs with the addition of the following lifting procedures: buttocks lift, thigh lift, abdominoplasty, arm lift, breast lift, and more. We typically combine liposuction and fat grafting, as in a “brazillian butt-lift,” with lower body lifts for optimum results. This variation is especially common with our body-builder clients. We will also consider your unique risk factors and create a plan that minimizes your surgical risk.
The Body Lift Procedure
Body lift procedures are performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Sobel will make strategic incisions to access the fatty layers under the skin for small volume liposuction. Once the fat is safely removed, excess skin will be removed and incisions will be closed, resulting in firmer skin. Each area of the body in your plan will be completed in one surgical session. Initial recovery requires that compression bandages be worn. The extent of your recovery is directly related to how comprehensive your surgical plan is. We also use platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood to expedite the healing process. The results will be complete and noticeable 6 months after surgery.
