Significant weight loss, pregnancy, and the natural aging process can cause skin anywhere on the body to lose its contour and tone. Regardless of your unique condition, if you are troubled by excess, sagging skin on multiple trouble areas, you may be a good candidate for a full body lift. Offered to our patients in Darien and throughout Fairfield County, this comprehensive procedure can tighten and tone your skin, and greatly improve your confidence in your appearance.
During a consultation, Dr. Passaretti will begin by discussing your cosmetic concerns and goals with you, and perform a thorough examination. Each full body lift is individualized, and can combine any number of procedures to provide outstanding results. Overall, a body lift removes excess tissue for a smoother, more trim shape, and can help achieve asymmetry between the front and back of the body.
A full body usually includes abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, to create a tighter midsection. However, many of our patients are also concerned with the flank. Full body lift can also be tailored to enhance the lateral thigh area, back, and buttocks. The breasts, arms, and neck can also be treated during the procedure. In addition to trimming loose skin, liposuction is often performed during the surgery.
Significant amounts of sagging skin not only affect your appearance, but they can also lead to discomfort and pain. In addition to improved confidence and self esteem, patients can benefit from increased comfort and the ability to enjoy their favorite activities again.
Like any major surgery, full body lift is not devoid of risk. Dr. Passaretti exercises strict standards before approving patients for candidacy. Additionally, our state-licensed, fully accredited operating facility is specially dedicated to cosmetic surgery patients, minimizing the risk of infection that can occur when receiving care in a hospital setting.
To help ensure a smooth recovery, Dr. Passaretti can provide you with detailed at-home care instructions. Some bruising and swelling can be expected during healing, and because a significant healing period is involved, patients should abstain from returning to normal levels of activity for four to six weeks.
For your comfort, Dr. Passaretti can prescribe medication throughout the healing process, and he will check that your healing is progressing as expected during periodic check-ups. Because each body lift is unique, Dr. Passaretti will provide you with specific instructions to ensure that you heal properly.
