Why a 360 Body Lift? | Aspira Plastic Surgery

360 body lift before and after
Over the years, you’ve probably gone through all kinds of weight fluctuations, even episodes of dramatic weight loss. And now, while you’re happy with your weight and overall health, the sagging skin hanging below your waistline is not only making you reluctant to look at yourself in a full-length mirror but is also:
  • Preventing you from trying on and buying the latest fashions in clothing.
  • Causing you to avoid lounging at the pool or on the beach with friends and family.
  • Making playing tag with the young ones around your backyard almost impossible.
  • Causing painful chafing, rashes, and even infections.
  • Eroding your self-confidence.
  • And more…
No amount of diet modifications or exercise regimens have been able to tighten that sagging skin or remove the excess fat deposits that have settled in unwanted areas. Surgical removal of the excess skin and fat is the only option available now that weight loss alone has not provided the results you sought. Fortunately, now that you’ve lost all the weight and are keen to regain a more youthful and positive self-image, Dr. Venkata Erella’s circumferential tummy tuck, the 360 body lift, can provide you with a significantly improved and renewed appearance, together with a boost of self-confidence. To find out more about 360 body lift surgery in Lakeway, Bee Cave, and Austin, TX, we invite you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Erella today!

When to Consider a 360 Body Lift

A 360 body lift is a procedure that tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess skin from the abdomen, hips, and buttocks. The result is a slimmer, more toned look throughout the entire torso. The procedure is most appropriate if you:
  • Have experienced dramatic weight loss due to bariatric surgery or dieting.
  • Overhanging skin in your lower body is restricting your mobility and causing painful chafing, rashes, or infection.
  • Are troubled by sagging skin on your lower body.

Are You a Good Candidate for a 360 Body Lift?

Now that you’ve achieved a healthy weight, you may still feel frustrated by the excess sagging skin along your lower abdomen, overly relaxed abdominal wall muscles, and loose and wrinkled skin along the thighs and buttocks. A 360 body lift, while leaving a circumferential scar hidden below the bikini line, can dramatically improve areas of sagging skin below the waistline. Should you still be undecided if the procedure is for you, here are some common reasons why you may want to consider it:
  • You have lost a significant amount of weight.
  • Pregnancy and perhaps aging has left you with loose skin below the waistline.
  • You have loose skin on your hips, inner thighs, abdomen, and the sides and front of your thighs.
  • You have significant skin laxity, excess skin, and sagginess of the buttocks and abdomen.
  • You do not smoke or are prepared to quit at least six weeks before surgery.
  • Your weight has been steady for at least a year, with no further weight loss planned.
  • You are in overall good health and have no chronic medical conditions.
  • You follow a healthy diet.
  • You are mentally prepared for the procedure since it requires patience and endurance.
If you are in good general health and have realistic expectations for the outcome, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
