Today Dr. Emer’s partner plastic surgeon performs a circumferential body lift on a patient who had lost over 100 pounds.
Our massive weight loss patient had previously undergone skin removal surgery, but after losing more weight, he came to us for a total revision. By performing a 360 body lift, our board-certified plastic surgeon is able to remove his “skin suit” and plicate his abdominal muscles, giving his abdomen a corset shape. His tummy tuck went 360 degrees around his torso, therefore making a circumferential body lift. The patient also benefits from a lifted buttock from this type of procedure.
When a patient loses a significant amount of weight, they are often left with excess skin that doesn’t retract to their new shape. To removal all of the excess skin around his stomach loves handles and buttocks, our board-certified plastic surgeon removed approximately 6.2 pounds of excess skin.
Before his 360 circumferential lower body lift procedure, Dr. Emer performed HD liposuction to his abdomen. This combination will give him an athletic shape after he’s healed from surgery.
Dr. Jason Emer always suggests very intensive post-op care to all of his patients to increase results and speed up the healing process. The post-op protocol includes hyperbaric oxygen therapy, IV hydration therapy, and radiofrequency therapy. Continuing lymphatic massages paired up with the above will assist with healing and pain levels of the procedure. The patient will leave with garments to compress the procedure area as well as scar creams (which you can find at www.emeragecosmetics.com) to reduce scarring from the procedure. Overall, these procedures will have a quicker healing time and reduce swelling.
