Obese people who have lost weight through gastric banding or bypass as well as diet and exercise mostly suffer from excess of flabby, droopy tissue. This excess skin can be tightened and removed in different regions of the body through a single procedure. The body contour is adjusted to the new body weight.
The course of treatment
Nowadays, the abdomen, hips, back and buttocks can be adjusted in a single operation. This technique improves the body silhouette.
The surgery is a six hour procedure. The hospital stay lasts one to two weeks. The rehabilitation period must last from 4 to 8 weeks.
A possible reimbursement by the health insurance can be implemented upon request by means of the medical service presented by health insurance companies.
What about scarring and operating restrictions?
The consequence of the surgery is only one scar. Thus it can be optimally covered by underwear or swimwear. Nevertheless, the quality of life you gain outweighs the body contour.
A body lift is only suitable for patients with a BMI (Body Mass Index) below 30, and if the weight was constant over the last 6 to 12 months.
