What is a full-body lift?
A full body lift surgery, also known as a belt lipectomy or body contouring, is an aesthetic surgical procedure used to reshape and firm various parts of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, hips, arms, and breasts. A body lift removes excess skin and repositions tissues for a more toned, harmonious silhouette.
It's important to note that a body lift differs from an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). While an abdominoplasty focuses solely on removing excess skin from the abdomen, a body lift involves multiple areas of the body, offering an overall and complete correction.
Indeed, lifting procedures include:
When considering a full body lift, it's essential to consult a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. The surgeon will evaluate your specific situation, discuss your aesthetic goals, and develop a personalized treatment plan. With Turquie Santé, we offer you many renowned plastic surgeons who specialize in body lifts and provide high-quality services at competitive prices. Destinations such as Izmir, Antalya, Ankara, and Istanbul are known for their clinics and hospitals that offer top-notch care.
The objective of the Full Body Lift surgery
The goal of body lift is to treat sagging skin that persists despite non-surgical treatments and exercise, and that is caused by weight fluctuations, sun damage, pregnancy, or aging. This surgical procedure can result in firmer, younger-looking skin.
However, it's important to note that a full body lift will not significantly remove heavy fat deposits. It is preferable to have a stable weight close to your ideal weight before considering a body lift. In some cases, where there are small localized fat deposits, but the skin elasticity is reduced, the surgeon may recommend a combination of liposuction and body lift for optimal results.
What are the benefits of body contouring?
Full body lift offers several significant advantages. This procedure is designed to remove and/or reduce excess skin after massive weight loss. The benefits of body lift surgery include:
- Correction of sagging skin: A body lift effectively treats the sagging and excess soft tissue that occurs after major weight loss. It tightens loose skin and restores firmness.
- Improved shape and tone: By reshaping the body, a body lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissues. It reshapes body contours, creating a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
- Reduction of excess fat and skin: In addition to removing excess skin, a body lift may include liposuction techniques to remove stubborn fat deposits. This results in smoother contours and an improved overall appearance.
- Lasting results: Provided the patient stabilizes their weight and maintains a healthy lifestyle after the procedure.
Improved self-confidence: By regaining a more toned figure and improved physical appearance, many patients experience an increase in self-confidence and overall well-being.
In general, a full body lift is recommended when the skin has lost its elasticity to the point where non-surgical methods are unable to restore an aesthetically satisfactory body shape. It is important to note that this procedure is not intended to reduce weight, but rather to modify the body contour to improve the overall silhouette.
It is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine your eligibility for this procedure, discuss your aesthetic goals, and obtain information specific to your case.
What should be done before a belt lipectomy in Turkey?
During the first visit to the specialist in Istanbul & Antalya Turkey, the patient is informed about all the potential risks and complications of a body lift. An overall assessment of the body structure, and surgical planning, are performed. The possibility of surgery is assessed based on numerous parameters (patient's age, BMI, skin quality and texture, presence of laxity and muscle weakness, etc.). If the patient is deemed suitable for body contouring surgery, he or she will be informed of the possible aesthetic results that can be achieved.
During the first visit, routine preoperative examinations are performed to assess the patient's health.
