Body Lift’s for arms (more commonly known as “Bingo Wings”) and buttocks help remove excess skin, remove fat and tighten tissue. Not only is loose hanging skin unsightly but it can cause functional problems. Large amounts of excess skin can appear and cover skin areas around the pubis/groin, armpits and thighs. Another common problem that can occur is skin irritation due to sweating and friction. Some patients feel that despite losing weight they cannot fully benefit from their hard work as excess skin restricts them and can also cause social embarrassment. EA Clinic’s surgical lift of the arm, buttocks and lower body can remove this excess skin and restore body form and confidence.

FAQ

The lower body lift procedure begins with the surgeon making an incision around the belt-line of the waist, across the lower abdomen, and across the top of buttocks. Excess fat and skin are then removed before the incisions are closed and covered with bandages and a compression garment for six weeks to reduce swelling and aid in the natural tightening of the skin. Liposuction is a very useful tool which may be used to remove excess fat and shape the body in these patients.

The ideal candidate for a lower body lift is someone with excess loose skin following successful weight loss or bariatric surgery. The patient must be healthy and free from any chronic health problems.

Following a lower body lift you are advised to ensure you have a member of family or a close friend available to help you while you recover from surgery, you may need to go home with drains. A compression garment must be worn for six weeks. Your wounds will be checked two weeks after your surgery and the surgeon who performed your surgery will see you after 6 weeks for a follow-up assessment and as often as required until you are fully recovered. It is important that you stay well hydrated and mobile (drink fluids and potter around the house). Take pain relief tablet as prescribed and do not miss or delay doses. It is vital that you attend all necessary post-operative appointments. It is recommended that you take four to six weeks off work, stop driving for two weeks and avoid physical exercise until advised.

A buttock lift is a treatment to improve contouring and toning of bottoms and hips by removing excess fat and skin from the buttocks. A buttock lift improves and/or removes excess, sagging buttocks and thigh skin that has developed as a result of weight loss, ageing and gravity, or genetics. By raising and tightening the skin over the buttocks, a buttock lift may make the buttocks appear less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled. The results of buttock lift surgery are visible almost immediately, but it may take several months for your final results to fully develop. A buttock lift does not add volume or shape to your existing buttocks, but it may give a sleeker, more toned appearance.

It is carried out under sedation in the clinic theatre or under general anaesthetic in the hospital theatre. The surgeon carries out a buttock lift by making incisions on the side of the thigh and buttocks in strategic areas, before proceeding to remove excess fat and skin. The skin is then tightened and closed in layers. Patients can discuss the best places to hide their incisions during their consultation before surgery.

Good candidates for buttock lift are:
• Individuals with loss of skin elasticity in the buttock area due to extreme weight loss or ageing

Following a buttock lift a sterile dressing is applied and you will need to wear a compression garment or elastic girdle for six weeks that tightly holds the skin in to reduce swelling and aid in the natural tightening of the skin. Your wounds will be checked two weeks after your surgery and the surgeon who performed your surgery will see you after 6 weeks for a follow-up assessment and as often as required until you are fully recovered. It is vital that you attend all necessary post-operative appointments. It is recommended that you take two to four weeks off work, do not drive for two weeks and avoid physical exercise until advised.

Excess skin in the upper arms is commonly known as bingo wings. The loose skin on the upper arms can be a source of embarrassment. An upper arm lift (brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure which removes this excess skin and tissue, giving an improved appearance to the arms.
