Circumferential Body Lift Near Washington D.C.
Diet and exercise can go a long way when it comes to losing weight, but no amount of diet or exercise can help with the drooping or sagging excess skin that can be left after a dramatic weight loss. The skin has lost its elasticity and will not be able to spring back into shape on its own, which is when surgery is necessary to resolve the problem.
A circumferential body lift targets a combination of areas that exhibit signs of extreme weight loss. If you have lost a large quantity of weight and are now dealing with excess skin on the belly, upper abdomen, back and buttocks, then a circumferential body lift can give you the firm, taut body appearance you envision.
By targeting not only the tummy, a circumferential body lift can remove excess skin from multiple areas during the same procedure, which reduces the need for multiple surgeries and creates a more uniform and proportionate result in your figure.
Am I a Candidate for a Circumferential Body Lift?
If you have lost a lot of weight and have since maintained a stable weight that is within range of your ideal weight, then you might be a candidate for a circumferential body lift in Washington D.C.
Ideal candidates should have the following traits:
- Have been maintaining a stable weight
- Are within 30 pounds of their ideal weight
- Dealing with the excess skin, cellulite, or general sagginess, that resulted from their weight loss.

What Is a Circumferential Body Lift?
A circumferential body lift is customized to your unique shape and requirements. Every patient will have a completely customized procedure that will address their specific problem areas and achieve a result that brings greater happiness and confidence.
The procedure will be performed at either our state-of-the-art in-office surgery center or in the hospital by our board-certified surgeons. The administration of anesthesia is performed and overseen by board-certified anesthesiologists.
The procedure typically involves the removal of an area of skin and tissue from around the waist, including the love handles and on the back above the buttocks. The underlying tissue and musculature are tightened, and liposuction may be used to create a shapelier contour.
This will be conducted from a circumferential incision that spans the lower abdomen as well as around the hips to result in a thoroughly slimmed down figure with much of the excess skin and stretch marks removed. The result will be a more youthful silhouette with a lifted tummy, reduced love handles and folds as well as a lifted posterior if that area is included in your circumferential body lift.
Post-Operative Care and Recovery
Our team will monitor your progress over the subsequent weeks and months and inform you of all associated risks and post-operative instructions. Following the instructions perfectly after surgery is the best way to minimize risks and speed your recovery.
