When you have all of the right information regarding the body lift surgery, you will be able to make an educated decision, weighing the risks and benefits.  Giving your body a new shape, you will find that you don’t just lose excess skin, you gain confidence like you’ve never experienced.

During the body lift surgery, the necessary incisions will be placed strategically in natural body folds, where clothing can easily cover any scarring.  Once the incisions have been made, excess skin and tissue is removed and lifted wherever necessary.  Once the excess skin has been removed, drains are placed to remove fluid that accumulates during recovery.  Dr. Frenzel uses dissolvable sutures to complete the surgery.

Once your body lift surgery is complete, you will spend about one to two weeks recovering.  During your recovery time, pain medications can be prescribed if necessary.  In addition, an elastic compression garment will be worn to reduce swelling.  Recovery is an important aspect to the body lift procedure.  Giving your body the proper time to fully recover is essential.  Allow your body to properly heal and by week two to three you will see improvements.  Between weeks two and three light exercise can be resumed and after four to six weeks, normal activity can be resumed.  When you are fully recovered, regular exercise should be resumed in order to optimize the results of the surgery.

The body lift surgery is the perfect complement to weight loss surgery.  Giving your body a new, tighter shape, you will find the results life changing.  You will receive a fresh start physically and mentally, so schedule your consultation with Dr. Frenzel today and begin your cosmetic transformation journey.
