What is A Body Lift?
Upper and lower body lifts are body contouring procedures performed at Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery that remove excess skin and fat from the body to reshape and lift areas of the body affected by age, weight loss, pregnancy, and more. The lower body lift is performed to treat areas such as the abdomen, butt, and thighs; the upper body lift typically focuses on the arms, back, and more. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steckler is very experienced with body lift surgeries and can help you attain your desired results. For more information, contact our office in Ridgeland, MS to schedule a consultation.
What Can I Expect from My Body Lift?
Body lift surgery in Ridgeland, MS is performed while you are under general anesthesia. While the surgery can take between 4 – 7 hours, many of our patients find the outcome to be well worth it. The placement and length of your incision will depend on your treatment plan, but Dr. Steckler tries his best to make the incisions as inconspicuous as possible. From there, we will perform liposuction to remove any unwanted fat, then we will cut away the excess skin. Your remaining skin will be stretched tight then secured with sutures. After your surgery, we will likely fit you with a compression garment over your treatment area to promote healthy healing. Dr. Steckler and his team suggest you take about two weeks to recover before beginning your normal activities. We will also provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your wounds so you can minimize scarring.
