Body lifts are designed for those who have extra skin that extends circumferentially around the waist. This procedure essentially extends a tummy tuck around the entire body. This additional lifting improves the outer thigh and buttock area. The core muscles are tightened together to correct any six-pack muscle separation (rectus diastasis) that may be causing protrusion.
Body Contouring after Massive Weight Loss
You may have extra skin on your body from losing a significant amount of weight from diet and exercise or bariatric surgery. If you are considering a body lift, we recommend that you get close to your goal weight before your procedure to maximize your long term result. Having surgery while at a healthy goal weight facilitates more skin removal overall for a better final contour. Additionally, your surgical risks are statistically lower when you are in a healthy weight range.
I had a great experience with Dr. Vennemeyer! He, his wife Andrea, and his team are absolutely professional and dedicated. I couldn’t be happier with my results! I was in the best hands throughout the process, from the initial consultation to the recovery and follow ups. I was given detailed information every time, and provided clear and straight forward answers to my many questions. I fully trust his professionalism and skills.
I highly recommend Dr. Vennemeyer to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am thrilled with my tummy tuck and liposuction results! My abdomen is tight and flat and the scar is very low and easily hidden by underwear. My belly button looks very natural and the scar is minimal. My hips curve in naturally on the sides and I don’t have any lumps from the liposuction. Dr. Vennemeyer is a skilled an caring doctor with an excellent bed side manner.
Dr. Vennemeyer was so kind and easy to talk to. He listened to my concerns and what I wanted out of the procedure and helped me figure out the best plan for my body type! The office staff was super nice as well. They definitely made me feel comfortable and explained everything in great detail. I highly recommend them to anyone in search of a plastic surgeon.
There is not enough incredible words to say how amazing Dr. Vennemeyer and his team is. From the first phone call, appointments before surgery, surgery and all my appointments after have been nothing less then amazing. I absolutely love my results! I highly recommend them to anyone.
