Body Lift in Denver, CO at Atagi Plastic Surgery and Skin Aesthetics
After significant weight loss, some women experience loose, sagging skin. A lower body lift can help restore the contours of your body for a slim, trim figure.
During a lower body lift, a circumferential incision is made around your body, similar to wearing a belt. A body lift in Denver reduces excess skin and fat, like a tummy tuck. However, a body lift is more involved and can treat more than just the abdominal region. What’s more, an inner-thigh lift can be performed at the same time as a body lift if you experience large amounts of loose skin on your inner thighs. Dr. Tanya Atagi can review your individual concerns at your consultation and help you decide which procedure is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions about a Body Lift in Denver, CO
What if I lose or gain more weight following surgery?
In order to achieve optimal results, it is vital for your weight to be stabilized prior to a body lift. If you continue to lose weight, sagging skin can redevelop. If you rapidly regain the weight you have lost, you may cause visible stretch marks and possibly widen your scars. You may also need additional procedures.
Is there any downtime following a body lift in Denver?
You may return to work and regular daily activities in seven to ten days, as long as you avoid engaging in any heavy lifting or vigorous exercise.
How visible will the scars be?
Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin treated. Advanced techniques usually allow incisions to be placed in strategic locations where they can be hidden by most types of clothing and swimsuits. During your surgical consultation with Dr. Atagi, she will further discuss the potential locations of your scars.
