Your Body Lift Procedure
During your consultation, Dr. Eichenberg will evaluate your skin tone and areas of concern. This procedure is usually done under general anesthesia either within the hospital or in an outpatient surgery center.
Although the surgical sequence varies depending on the needs of each patient, Dr. Eichenberg will usually treat the belly first by removing the excess skin from the belly button down to the pubic area. The abdominal wall muscle, which is deep under the skin and fat of the belly, is then tightened by Dr. Eichenberg. Next, the patient is turned to the side, and the excess skin and fat from the side to the mid back is removed. This part of the operation reduces and lifts the outer thighs. As the skin and fat are removed from the back, the back rolls are reduced and the buttocks are lifted.
Dr. Eichenberg will explain to you the different steps of the surgery during your consultation. He also will discuss recovery, which can be somewhat uncomfortable. It sometimes requires a substantial amount of recovery time.
