Feel great after massive weight loss with skin that properly fits your slimmed physique.
For people who have lost large amount of weight, the stretched, sagging skin remains as a reminder of what was recently there. This hanging skin can also be very annoying, particularly for people who are active with their arms during work or recreation. It can be difficult to keep dry in the summer months and, for women, awkward to fit into bras. Often this excess skin blends into the upper arm, the back, or side of the breast.
An Upper Body Lift removes excess skin and tightens the chest, resulting in a single scar extending around the trunk. This procedure can be safely combined with a breast lift and/or arm lift in a single operation to improve the look of the upper body. An Upper Body Lift is performed at one of our accredited operative facilities, either as an outpatient or with a one-night stay, depending on each individual’s needs. Recovery is typically rapid, but with limitations on lifting and reaching. Return to work and normal activity is typically 2-3 weeks.
