Total body lifting

Patients who have lost great amount of weight are now having the excess of skin that can be surgically removed.

 

Patient must be in good shape, having good blood analysis and general health. Also, the patient must be a non-smoker and mustn’t have diabetes. This is a high-risk surgery due to large incisions and large wound size. Younger patients have advantage comparing to older ones. Incisions are hidden but they exist. Preoperatively, blood is taken out from patient and afterwards returned during the surgery.

This procedure removes skin excess from upper arm, stomach, back and upper leg.Recovery is four to six weeks long. Compressive bandagers’ therapy is a month long. Scars are gradually withdrawing but never completely disappear. Depending on the skin quality and regeneration mode, scars can be hypertrophy or keloid.
