For individuals concerned with a disproportionate figure or drooping skin resulting from pregnancy, dramatic weight loss, or a decline in skin elasticity, Dr. Barttelbort offers a comprehensive range of body lift procedures for achieving a smooth, well-proportioned figure. Read on to learn more about the body lift options we offer at our practice:
The full body lift procedure is ideal for individuals who have lost a dramatic amount of weight either through dieting or weight loss surgery. Full body lift involves contouring of the upper and lower body, including the midsection, back, lower-abdomen, buttocks and thighs. During the procedure, Dr. Barttelbort lifts the lower body and tightens the upper abdomen and back, by smoothing skin flaps and removing excess skin and fat. He then uses liposuction techniques to refine contours and provide further tightening. Full body lift is an intensive procedure that may not be right for every individual; some patients may be better served through a combination of localized body contouring procedures.
To find out if you are a candidate for the full body lift, please contact the office of Dr. Scott Barttelbort today. We would be happy to schedule your consultation or answer any questions that you may have.
Whereas full-body lift addresses the entire body, lower body lift is focused on enhancing the appearance of the lower abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs. During the procedure, Dr. Barttelbort lifts the lower body and removes redundant skin and fat from the lower abdomen and back. He may then use liposuction techniques to refine the new contours and achieve a more balanced overall figure.
Thighplasty can be performed successfully on individuals of ideal weight and those with larger quantities of excess fat. To accomplish a thighplasty, Dr. Barttelbort carefully repositions the buttocks, hips and thighs, creating a tighter, more lifted appearance. Compared to the lower body lift, thighplasty targets the buttocks, hips, and thighs, not addressing the lower abdomen and back areas. During thighplasty, liposuction to the buttocks and thighs can be performed to optimize the aesthetic contours and overall results.
A medial thigh lift can be combined with liposuction to improve the skin laxity of the upper inner thigh. A short scar technique that hides the incision in the groin line is recommended for patient with moderate skin laxity. For patients with greater skin laxity they may require a vertical scar down the inside of the thigh.
For patients with drooping underarm skin and fat, Dr. Barttelbort offers arm lift procedures to tighten the upper arm area. Through an incision along the inner portion of the upper arm, Dr. Barttelbort removes fat deposits and excess skin, creating a more slender and toned appearance. For patients with minimal skin and fat of the upper arm, Dr. Barttelbort offers the horizontal brachioplasty technique which nicely hides the scar in the axilla (armpit).For additional information about any of our body lift and contouring procedures, please contact the office of Dr. Scott Barttelbort today.
