Body Lift In Houston

Introduction to

Body Lift

One of the most hindering side effects of losing excess weight is your body’s inability to “snap back into shape”. Your body stretches to accommodate the fat and muscle in your body, so when patients go through dramatic weight fluctuations, they find that they now have “too much skin” that hangs and sags, and it’s most commonly found in the lower-to-mid section of the body. Dr. Ahmad Ahmadi and his team at Avante Plastic Surgery strive to provide our Houston patients with natural-looking results with a Body Lift procedure. To find out if you could benefit from this treatment, please keep reading the information we have provided below.

What is a Body Lift?

A Body Lift is a surgical procedure that may consist of work being performed on several treatment areas, such as your abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. The goal of this surgery is to improve your underlying supportive tissue’s shape and tone. Any areas where there is excess sagging are removed, which can improve a dimpled or irregular skin surface. In situations where the patient has poor skin elasticity, you may require Liposuction as an additional procedure for best results.

What’s the first step for a

Body Lift

If you’re interested in a Body Lift in Houston, the first step is to book a consultation with Dr. Ahmad Ahmadi at Avante Plastic Surgery. When you come in for your appointment, the two of you will go over your objectives for the surgery, review your medical history, and examine your target areas for the procedure. Based on this information, Dr. Ahmadi will create a customized surgical plan that caters to the specific requirements of your Body Lift. The surgical plan will outline the techniques to be employed, the anesthesia options available, and the expected outcome of the surgery. If you are content with the plan, you can coordinate a date with our Patient Coordinator, who will also give you a detailed set of pre-operative instructions to follow before your Body Lift.

What to Expect on the Day of Body Lift

On the day of your Body Lift, you will first be administered anesthesia, either general or intravenous sedation, depending on what is discussed during your consultation. Dr. Ahmadi will make incisions at strategic locations around your body where he will be able to remove excess skin and fat. The primary targeted areas of a body lift include the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and lower back. Any incisions made by Dr. Ahmadi will be well hidden either in the natural curves and creases of your body or hidden within your bikini area. If you require Liposuction to remove stubborn fat, this will also be performed before your incisions are closed.

The total time for this surgery will be based on your individual needs, but you can expect between six and eight hours.


Body Lift Recovery

Once you are released by Dr. Ahmadi, you will be able to return home to recover in peace and comfort. You will need a ride home from the hospital as you will still be under the influence of pain medication and anesthesia. Your body will be wrapped in compression gauze to minimize swelling, and you will be encouraged to wear it for a least a few weeks.

As you recover, it’s important to take enough time to rest and heal. Most patients will need at least a week before gradually returning to non-strenuous activities, and then being able to return to normal activity around six weeks post-op.
