Dr. Fereydoon Mahjouri, MD - Body Lift Minneapolis, MN - St. Paul, Minnesota
Extra skin may migrate downward as a result of 1) moderate or excessive weight loss (especially in a short period of time) 2) changing lifestyle or 3) bariatric surgeries. This "sagging of the skin" becomes a major concern for such individuals. To address this problem, we offer different combinations of procedures that are simply referred to as a body lift.
Dr. Mahjouri offers face and neck lifts, breast uplifts, arm lifts, belt lifts, thigh lifts, and buttock lifts. We can assist our prospective patient in choosing the best combination of procedures and suggest the order of how to achieve the patient's goal without compromising their safety.
To prevent accumulation of blood or seroma, soft drains are placed under the mobilized skin flaps for a few days. These drains are then removed when there is minimal drainage. Patients are custom-fitted with elastic garments to reduce swelling and drainage. Strenuous activities are not permitted for 3 to 6 weeks. Most patients can return to daily activities within 10 days and can return to more laborious work in 3 to 6 weeks.
