Sagging Skin – A Challenge Resulting from Weight Loss
A major weight loss following a bariatric surgery, multiple pregnancies, or simply the aging process can cause the appearance of excess, droopy skin. When the skin and fatty tissue tend to lose elasticity due to prolonged stretching, they could hang from your upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, or breasts.
These unsightly skin folds may prevent you from looking and feeling your best. But apart from the cosmetic effects, this condition may also create frequent infections, rashes, skin irritation and sores. Skin removal surgery is a safe and proven way to get rid of these problems caused by excess skin.
This cosmetic surgery procedure will remove sagging skin from the lower abdominal area, which may be hanging over the pubic area and on to the thighs. Panniculectomy is sometimes performed in conjunction with an abdominoplasty. Depending on the extent of pannus or hanging skin, your surgeon will determine the length and location of the incision.
Popularly called tummy tuck, this plastic surgery procedure will eliminate sagging skin and fatty tissue as well as tighten separated abdominal muscles to restore a firmer and flatter abdomen. Your surgeon will create an incision across the lower abdominal area, right above the pubic site. Repositioning of the navel may also be involved in some cases.
An upper arm lift or brachioplasty is commonly included as part of skin removal surgery. It will remove droopy skin from the underside of your upper arms. The incision will be placed in the back of your upper arm or in the armpit, depending on the amount of loose skin to be removed. Through the incision, your surgeon will tighten and reshape the supportive tissue, and smooth the skin over the new, youthful arm contours.
A thighplasty or thigh lift cosmetic surgery will remove sagging skin and excess fatty tissue to tighten, contour and reshape the outer or inner thigh. Loose skin from the upper inner thigh can be removed with a crescent shaped incision in the thigh. Other surgical options include a lateral thigh lift and a medial thigh lift, depending on your unique aesthetic needs.
Brazilian Butt Lift
This has emerged as one of the popular procedures, which can be performed as part of your skin removal surgery if you have loose or sagging skin the posterior. A traditional buttock lift may be performed if along with excess skin removal, you also require elimination of unwanted fatty deposits. The procedure can sometimes be performed in conjunction with butt implants or an outer thigh lift.
