Body Lift Beverly Hills
Many people who lose a significant amount of weight, either through exercise or through weight-loss surgery, are often left with an unflattering shape and unsculpted contours to their body. Most people who lose weight feel confident and want to show off their more slender bodies, but are not able to do so because of excess skin. Dr. Hadeed specializes in body contouring and body sculpting procedures. By customizing each procedure to the individual needs and desired results of each patient, Dr. Hadeed is able to sculpt the body and give his patients beautiful long-lasting results.
Body contouring and body sculpting can address loose, sagging skin and irregular contours involving the abdomen, buttocks, groin, thighs, and arms. In certain instances, a patient may not need a complete body lift, and an upper or lower body lift alone will be sufficient. The procedures involved will vary for each individual. Dr. Hadeed uses the latest techniques to improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissues after removal of the excess skin. Although most patients seeking body contouring surgery have undergone massive weight loss, the procedure can benefit anyone seeking a firmer, more youthful-looking body. Since the needs of each patient are different, Dr. Hadeed will discuss with you your desired results and formulate a surgical plan to help you achieve them.
Body contouring procedures may be performed on individuals who have realistic expectations for improvement of their body shape. It is appropriate for people who have achieved their ideal weight. The length of the surgery will vary depending on the number of procedures that Dr. Hadeed will perform. In order to achieve the best possible results, Dr. Hadeed will make incisions in the natural folds of your skin. He will then remove the excess skin and tissue, and in some instances liposuction may also be used to remove any extra deposits of fat. After Dr. Hadeed tightens your skin and is satisfied with the result, he will close the incisions with sutures and then apply sterile dressings. You may also be required to wear a compression garment for up to six weeks after surgery, which will help to control swelling as well as maintain your new body shape as you heal. Although you will notice immediate results after surgery, the body will continue to change and improve over the course of the entire year following the surgery.
