Advantages of Body Lifts for Arms and Buttocks

 

Not only is loose hanging skin unsightly but it can cause functional problems. Large amount of excess skin can cover the pubis and groin, armpits, thighs. Skin irritation can occur in this area due to sweating. Patients feel that despite losing weight they cannot fully benefit from it as this excess skin restricts them and is also a cause of social embarrassment. A surgical lift of the arm, buttocks and lower body can remove this excess skin and restore body form and confidence.

Body Lifts Procedure

 

LOWER BODY LIFT

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.

BUTTOCK LIFT PROCEDURE

It is carried out under sedation or under general anaesthetic in the operating 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.

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.

The procedure is carried out under general anaesthesia. It can be done as a day case or you may stay in hospital overnight. The scars are very noticeable with this procedure as the incisions are usually made from the armpit to the elbow. The excess skin and fat are removed and then the incision is stitched back together (usually using dissolvable sutures) giving an improved appearance to the arms. The resulting scar runs on the inner part of the arm extending from the armpit towards the elbow. The length of the scar varies depending on the amount of the skin which requires excision. In order to help reduce swelling and aid in the natural tightening of the skin the arms are then wrapped in dressings or a compression garment which must be worn for six weeks.

The ideal candidate for arm lift is someone with excess loose skin on the upper arm which hangs like a wing when the arm is held out. This may be associated with excess fat.

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.

  • Individuals with loss of skin elasticity in the buttock area due to extreme weight loss or ageing

It is vital that you attend all necessary post-operative appointments.
