What is 360 lift surgery?
360 lift surgery, also known as a circumferential body lift, is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and hips by removing excess skin and fat from these areas.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes incisions around the entire circumference of the patient's waist and removes a band of skin and fat from the lower back, hips, and buttocks. The remaining skin is then pulled tight and sutured together, creating a more contoured appearance.
This procedure is often performed on individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight and have excess skin that cannot be removed through diet and exercise alone. It can also be performed on individuals who have loose or sagging skin due to aging or genetics.
Who is suitable for 360 lift surgery?
Good candidates for this surgery are generally in good overall health, have maintained a stable weight for at least six months, and have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure. It's also important that they do not smoke or use nicotine products, as this can increase the risk of complications during and after surgery.
It's important to note that 360 lift surgery is a major surgical procedure and requires a significant amount of recovery time. Patients will need to take time off from work and other daily activities and follow a strict post-operative care plan to ensure proper healing.
Before undergoing the surgery, it's important to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who can evaluate your individual needs and help you determine if 360 lift surgery is the right option for you.
