A 360 body lift or circumferential body lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure during which Dr. Katzen removes excess fat, skin and tissue from certain areas. It is typically done on patients who have lost vast amounts of weight and have been left with a lot of fat deposits and sagging skin. Not only can sagging skin affect self-esteem, but it can also interfere with hygiene and make it hard for the patient to find clothes that fit properly.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
There are several different techniques that may be used during a 360 body lift. The details of each procedure depend on the situation, and the procedure is always tailored for the individual. Dr. Katzen may tighten the muscles around the midsection, including the abdominal and buttocks muscles. He can also remove excess skin, fat and tissues.
Who is a Good Candidate for a 360 Body Lift?
Since a 360 body lift is a surgical procedure, the candidate must fit certain criteria. Since weight fluctuations can negatively affect the results of the procedure, the patient needs to be at a stable weight. The patient also needs to have good health habits, so they will not gain all their weight back. Good candidates also have realistic expectations regarding the procedure, the recovery and the results. Of course, Dr. Katzen and his team will make sure to provide all of the necessary information so that you are well-prepared for the procedure.
What are the Benefits?
One of the great things about the 360 body lift is that multiple problem areas are able to be addressed during one procedure. For example, rather than having one procedure performed on your hips and another one on your back, Dr. Katzen can tackle both of these areas and more during a 360 body lift. Once you have fully recovered from your circumferential body lift procedure, you won’t believe what a difference it has made in your life. Your self-confidence will be improved, and you will finally be able to enjoy the body that you worked so hard to get through all of your weight loss efforts. Depending on when you have your procedure, you may even be able to enjoy your results in time for Summer! We invite you to schedule a consultation at the office of J.
