Body Contouring Riverside: Body Lift Surgery from Ben Childers, MD

If you have ever undergone major weight loss, you know that one of the most bothersome, unpleasant side effects is loose, sagging skin. Sagging skin after weight loss originates from skin losing its elasticity. Gaining weight makes the skin stretch, forcing it to tap into all the elasticity it has; essentially, the skin becomes "overextended." When the weight is gone, that stretched out skin has no other recourse but to hang there. Sometimes, this is so unattractive that it leads to the person feeling as if he would have been better off staying heavy.

Fortunately, there is a solution for sagging skin after weight loss: body lift surgery. With body lift surgery, you can enjoy the smoother, tighter figure you lost the weight for in the first place. It involves a physician surgically eliminating all that excess skin, leaving you with the toned appearance you worked so hard for. Of course, you need a qualified cosmetic surgeon to perform this procedure; we recommend Ben Childers, MD of Riverside Plastic Surgery Associates.

Body Contouring Riverside: Recovering from Body Lift Surgery

Recovery times vary on the body lift procedure for each patient, depending on how many body areas were targeted with surgery. For general information purposes, we advise that you plan for a downtime of at least two weeks, with no work, adequate help around the house and plenty of rest. Patients who undergo surgery on many body areas will likely require more downtime than patients who undergo a minimal amount of surgery.
