Those who have undergone significant weight loss, but are experiencing sagging skin on the abdomen, a body lift may help. Whether caused by aging, sun damage, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or genetics, poor tissue elasticity can result in sagging of the lower torso.
By performing a body lift procedure, Dr. Cashio can surgically improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue.
It is important to note that body lifts are not intended for the removal of excess fat. If the skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours, liposuction can be used to remove excess fat deposits. For those areas where skin elasticity is poor, body lift techniques – in addition to liposuction – may be recommended.
