Park City, UT (PRWEB) January 20, 2012
When diet and exercise don’t deliver a well-toned body a Body Lift may be just what the doctor ordered.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the goal of a Body Lift is to improve “the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin”. This body contouring procedure generally includes the removal of droopy, excess skin which results from massive weight loss and/or poor skin or tissue elasticity and fat removal.
The ASPS’s “Report of the 2010 Plastic Surgery Statistics” shows that the number of body contouring procedures performed has been on the rise. In 2009, nearly 49,000 related procedures were performed. In 2010, that number jumped to 52,603.
As a result, LipoSite.com has added a Body Lift Overview to its list of free web articles.
“Loose, saggy skin and less-than-ideal contours aren’t uncommon,” says Shawn Miele, a LipoSite.com representative.
“People reach a certain age. They’re left with post-pregnancy bodies they’re unhappy with. They lose and regain weight. Eventually, their bodies have trouble bouncing back.”
“Body Lift surgery firms up trouble spots and restores proportion to the contours along their butts, thighs, stomach and upper arms. The results are noticeable immediately and generally last a lifetime. Most people find that the physical improvements from body lift also lead to a better emotional state and more confidence”
LipoSite.com has been committed to consumer education since its launch in 1998.
“It’s important that consumers understand what they’re getting themselves into,” explains Miele. “We want them to arrive at a plastic surgeon’s office well-informed.”
So, what is a Body Lift?
“A Body Lift is a blend of body contouring procedures which address a variety of patient concerns all at once. Typically it includes a Thigh Lift, Upper Arm Lift, Lower Body Lift, Mastopexy (Breast Lift), Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) and/or Liposuction.”
“The primary goal of a Body Lift is to remove excess skin. With the addition of liposuction excess fat is removed, as well.”
Miele says candidates can make the most of Body Lift surgery by working closely with a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers proof of positive outcomes – Tummy Tuck photos, photos of other related procedures and Liposuction before and after photos.
“More importantly,” he says, “your doctor should place emphasis on the procedures, preparation steps and post-operative plans which are appropriate to your needs and lifestyle. You can help by maintaining a health weight and exercising afterward.”
