This procedure is often referred to as a “tummy-tuck” and helps to address problems men or women may have with loose or sagging abdominal wall skin and relaxation of the abdominal wall muscles. These conditions often result from pregnancy, massive weight loss, or both.

Good candidates for this procedure are in general good health, don’t smoke cigarettes, and don’t plan to have more children. Patients who are considering getting pregnant or losing a significant amount of weight are advised to defer surgery until their weight is stable, if possible, as pregnancy or substantial weight loss after surgery will result in some recurrent laxity.

This procedure is helpful in the treatment of sagging skin on the underside of the arm. Non-smokers in good health who wish to remove loose skin on the underside of the arm, which may be present due to aging, genetics, or weight loss are suitable candidates for this procedure.

Exercise certainly can be beneficial in toning of muscle and shedding fat, but skin laxity in the upper arms will not benefit. For patients desiring tightening of the skin of the upper arms, surgical excision is often the best choice.

Circumferential Body Lift

This procedure is appropriate for patients with significant skin laxity and fat excess in the lower abdomen, hips, flanks, outer thighs, and buttocks.

Good candidates for this procedure are men or women who are in good general health, and non-smokers. Patients who have experienced massive weight loss benefit greatly from this procedure, and are advised to defer surgery until their weight loss has plateaued for at least six months.

This procedure is appropriate for patients in good health with excess subcutaneous fat which is resistant to diet and exercise. Best results are obtained in body areas with good skin tone, as this is important in skin contraction after surgery to remove underlying fat.

While fat may be removed in areas with skin laxity, if skin contraction is minimal, the aesthetic result will be suboptimal.

Thigh / Buttock Lift

This procedure is appropriate for men or women who have laxity in the hip, outer thigh, and buttocks, as well as folds in the upper back. It is commonly performed in conjunction with an abdominoplasty (in which case the procedures are collectively referred to as a circumferential body lift). It may be performed in conjunction with liposuction, or fat injections to augment the buttocks. Other body contouring procedures, such as brachioplasty may also be performed.

This procedure is particularly helpful to patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and who have loose, dimpled, or sagging skin and is best reserved for patients in good general health who do not currently smoke. Some patients have a genetic predisposition towards laxity in the flanks and outer thighs. These patients may also be candidates for this procedure.
