Body lift is a comprehensive body contouring treatment that requires advanced surgical skill and refined aesthetic judgment. Dr. Alexander Golger is an accomplished Toronto body lift provider who combines leading-edge surgical techniques with compassionate patient care to consistently deliver highly rewarding body contouring results. Read on to learn how body lift with Dr. Golger can help improve your body shape.
Many people pursue body lift surgery after losing a large amount of weight through bariatric surgery. While the rapid weight loss induced by Lap-Band or gastric bypass surgery is a welcome event, the disappearing pounds often leave behind folds of excess skin that fail to re-shrink to the body’s new shape despite vigorous exercise and/or various spa treatments. Fortunately, body lift surgery can help remove the excess skin and reveal the patients’ newly slim body contours.
Body lift surgery is often seen as the last step in the transformation process from an obese individual to a slim, healthy person. Because body lift is a major surgery, it requires careful patient preparation. Dr. Golger personally meets with all of this prospective Toronto body lift patients to evaluate their overall health, skin condition and amount of excess tissue. He then describes the available treatment options and helps his patients choose the best procedures for them.
Body lift surgery often consists of several procedures that are performed in conjunction in order to achieve an overall contouring effect. Which procedures are appropriate for each Toronto body lift patient can be determined only during a personal consultation with Dr. Golger. However, some of the more common body lift treatments include the following:
Arm lift surgery helps remove the “bat wings” from the upper arms. Dr. Golger performs this surgery through an incision in the armpit or through a longer incision that extends from the armpit to the elbow. The type of incision that is best for you depends on the amount of excess skin as well as your age and skin elasticity.
Breast Lift / Gynecomastia Treatment
Female patients usually notice that their breasts appear deflated and saggy after massive weight loss. To restore a perkier breast appearance, Dr. Golger performs breast lift surgery. The corresponding treatment for male patients is male breast reduction (gynecomastia surgery), in which excess fat, glandular tissue and/or skin is removed from the chest.
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is an advanced surgical procedure that removes excess stomach skin and fat and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles. As an experienced Toronto tummy tuck surgeon, Dr. Golger often performs this treatment in conjunction with liposuction in order to fine-tune the results of abdominoplasty and create a flat stomach contour. These procedures are also often performed on Brampton / Aurora mommy makeover patients..
Lower Body Lift
Lower body lift helps add contour and definition to the buttocks and thighs. Depending on the amount of excess skin, a lower body lift might be combined with an inner thigh lift to create smooth, youthful thigh contours.
