Body Lift in Atlanta, GA
Body Lift Plastic Surgery
A body lift is a series of surgical procedures that reshape and excise excess skin and fat for patients who have experienced dramatic weight loss or have laxity due to aging.
If you have had weight loss surgery or achieved successful weight loss from any other method of diet/exercise, you may be a candidate for a body lift once your weight has stabilized for at least 6 months. Panacea Plastic Surgery will work closely with your weight loss team to make sure that your nutrition is optimized prior to your surgery.
The Body Lift Procedure
Body lift procedures can include Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), Panniculectomy, which is performed by a simple wedge excision, buttock lift, thigh lift, arm lift (brachioplasty), breast lift (mastopexy), chest wall reduction, male breast reduction for gynecomastia, facelift, and neck lift. These surgeries may be combined or performed in stages to maximize outcomes and ensure safety.
After dramatic weight loss, body lift procedures are typically performed to improve a patient’s overall look. Still, they may also be done to correct specific chronic areas of concern, such as upper arms, which may result from genetic predisposition or aging.
Body Lift Recovery
Body lift surgeries are performed under general anesthesia and usually require an overnight hospital stay. After surgery, you will be required to wear compression garments to reduce the swelling and help shape the different areas. Recovery depends on the extent of your procedure and your personal ability to heal. Light activity may be resumed the day after your surgery. Exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. Your doctor will discuss pain management with you during your consultation.
Body Lift Reviews
Dr Abboushi is an awesome doctor. I had a tummytuck with lippo on the flanks. I can not be anymore happy with my results. Dr. Abboushi has the best bedside manners. He listens to you and answers any questions you may have. He is also easy to reach after hours. His staff is just as wonderful. I would highly reccomend him to anyone.
Dr. Singh and her team of professionals were amazing throughout the entire process. They communicate very well and so far I’m very happy with the results. Edit update: a post op photo update 11 weeks post op from plus-size tummy tuck and lipo ✨ feeling and looking amazing
Great tummy tuck & flank lipo - results better than I expected - I am now a year post op from a tummy tuck and flank lipo. I have to say that Dr. Singh is an artist! When looking for a surgeon I knew I would have to travel (high bmi and I wanted a surgeon who is a woman-due to past medical trauma). Dr. Singh was caring compassionate and made sure I had realistic expectations. She was available day and night to make sure I was ok.I did have have some delayed healing after I traveled home, but that resolved fairly quickly. Overall I am so glad I had the procedure done. My results are even better than I expected and I would trust Dr. Singh and her team again in a heartbeat!
This office is filled with all my favorite people! I became familiar with Panacea after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr Abboushi was present during my double mastectomy and implanted my tissue expanders. Since then, I have had my expanders switched for implants and then another surgery for a fat transfer to take the results even further! The amount of care, love, and attention I have received for the entire staff is amazing x10! I have also had hydrafacials with Heather, and she is just wonderful and skilled at what she does. I had coolsculpting elite done to my love handles today and am excited to see the results in 6 months. I definitely am blessed to have this team on my side the past 2 years and hopefully years to come!
Great office! Great staff!
