Full Body Lift After Bariatric Surgery

By The Landings Surgical Centre on July 30, 2018


Holding extra love handle flabObesity and morbid obesity contribute to countless health and wellness problems. Thanks to bariatric surgery, many people who struggle with their weight can drastically reduce their BMI and help address obesity-related health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes.

Losing a lot of weight can put your body through a lot of changes, however. The team at our Halifax, NS plastic surgery centre would like to take a few moments to discuss full body lift surgery and how it can benefit people who have lost a lot of weight.

Body Changes After Bariatric Surgery

When you gain a lot of weight, your skin will stretch out a great deal to accommodate the added body mass. Your skin may stretch out a lot if the weight gain is particularly pronounced. As you lose weight, you’ll notice that your skin won’t shrink back tightly around your slimmer framer. This is the natural state of skin elasticity. In addition to loose skin, you may also notice stretch marks on your skin as well.

This loose skin tends to be situated around the abdominal area, the buttocks, the thighs, the upper torso, the shoulders and triceps, and even the neckline and lower parts of the face. The only way to get rid of this loose skin is cosmetic surgery.

About Full Body Lift Surgery

A full body lift refers to a combination of multiple body contouring procedures that are designed to help patients look trimmer, slimmer, and have a better overall figure. The surgery tightens the remaining skin and can even help reduce the prevalence of stretch marks.

A full body lift will often include a combination of the following plastic surgery procedures:

  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
  • Thighplasty (thigh lift)
  • Buttock lift
  • Breast lift/reduction
  • Bracioplasty (arm lift)
  • Neck lift
  • Lower face lift

The extent and nature of your body lift will be customized to your needs.

The Benefits of Full Body Lift Surgery

Thanks to a full body lift, people who have lost a lot of weight through bariatric surgery will be able to feel less self-conscious about their appearance. Without the loose skin and stretch marks, patients will usually feel better about the way they look, and this could improve the way clothes fit as well.

Many patients feel that cosmetic surgery after they’ve lost weight from a bariatric procedure helps them get a sense of closure in terms of improving their health.

When Should I Undergo a Full Body Lift?

Timing is crucial when it comes to post-bariatric surgery procedures. For most patients, they should consider body contouring surgery about two years after the date of their bariatric procedure.

Generally, most patients will lose their maximum amount of weight from surgery after about a year. In the year after that, patients may notice some weight regain as their body adjusts to their new dietary habits and increased physical activity. This can be discussed in more detail during a consultation at our practice.
