Full body lift surgery at our Albuquerque practice is a highly effective way to regain a slimmer and more toned appearance after losing significant amounts of weight. Full body lift surgery addresses excess skin and fat on areas all over the body, including the arms, thighs, waistline, butt, and breasts. Dr. Gallegos uses the most advanced body lift techniques to help patients achieve natural-looking results with minimal scarring. The result is a new, trimmer, and more youthful figure.
The Full Body Lift Procedure
Full body lift surgery is a highly effective contouring treatment that is completely customized to the specific cosmetic goals and needs of the patient. During the body lift procedure, Dr. Gallegos creates incisions on carefully selected areas of the body and removes excess fat using liposuction. He then tightens the underlying muscles to produce a firmer appearance. Next, Dr. Gallegos pulls the skin taut and trims off any excess skin, creating smoother contours. Finally, he sutures the incisions shut and places compression garments over the treated areas.
Full Body Lift Results and Recovery
Recovery from full body lift surgery is a long process that can take up to six weeks. Patients should expect pain, swelling, and discomfort after body lift surgery, which can be eased with pain medications prescribed by Dr. Gallegos. Our surgeon recommends that patients get plenty of rest after surgery and refrain from engaging in rigorous activity for a few weeks. Following these and other instructions given to you by Dr. Gallegos can help make recovery swift and successful.
