Respected plastic surgeon in Orange County explains upper body lift surgery
After childbirth, many women long for their pre-pregnancy bodies. Whether they are unhappy with lax skin in the abdominal area or deflated breasts, mothers in Orange County can count on compassionate treatment at The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery. Well-respected plastic surgeon Dr. Thuan Nguyen and our team provide a “Mommy makeover” to help women attain the bodies they want. A “Mommy makeover” can include an upper body lift, lower body lift, or total body lift. Upper body lift surgery can focus on the arms, breasts, and middle back area, whereas lower body lift surgery can include the abdominal area, thighs, buttocks, and back. Total body lift includes both upper and lower areas of the body.
If you have maintained a stable weight for at least three months and you exercise and maintain a healthy diet, you may be a candidate for body lift surgery. It is recommended you wait at least a year if you have had gastric bypass or lap band surgery. If you plan to have children, Dr. Nguyen may recommend postponing surgery until after childbearing. Body lift surgery can be ideal for removing skin and tissue after losing post-pregnancy weight. Dr. Nguyen will ask you about your goals and expectations for treatment. He will review your medical history and examine the areas of the body you wish to have treated. It is critical to have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the treatment outcome. If you are a candidate for body lift surgery, Dr. Nguyen will tailor a treatment plan to address your goals.
Results of upper body lift surgery can include improved body contours and increased self-esteem. While mothers adore their children, it is also important they love their bodies. After surgery, they report feeling more confident and enjoying an improved quality of life. Dr. Nguyen loves helping women, as well as men, attain the bodies of their dreams. For men, upper body lift surgery can include an upper breast reduction.
