Toledo circumferential body lift plastic surgery for a slimmer, more contoured body.

A circumferential body lift may be right for you if wish to combine an abdomen reduction and buttock lift or reduction. Circumferential body lift is intended to remove excess skin and tissue that remains following massive weight loss. The procedure takes its name from the fact that the surgeon makes incisions around the entire circumference of the body. Incisions are typically made hip to hip, front to back.

Drs. Colville and Zavell will take care to consider your unique circumstances in order to determine if you are a candidate for a circumferential body lift.

Length of Circumferential Body Lift Plastic Surgery

The length of your circumferential body lift plastic surgery depends on the number of areas operated upon, but generally requires several hours.

Anesthesia Requirements for Circumferential Body Lift Plastic Surgery

Typically, general anesthesia will be used during your circumferential body lift.

Risks of Circumferential Body Lift Plastic Surgery

Recovery from Circumferential Body Lift Plastic Surgery

The smoother, tighter contouring that results from a circumferential body lift are apparent almost immediately, although initially obscured by some swelling and bruising. You may be required to wear a compression garment for several weeks following your procedure to minimize swelling and support the tissues as they heal. Skin quality is typically dramatically improved both in appearance and feel following this surgery.
