Fat Elimination and Body Contouring

On the day of the surgery, your plastic surgeon will carefully photograph and mark the areas to be treated as a guide during the procedure. Then you will be transferred to the ward where the surgery will be performed.

At Eres Plastic Surgery we use general anesthesia for the removal of excess skin from the body, regardless of the body type or how much skin will be removed during the surgical procedure. This body lift procedure usually starts first from back and sides, but it can vary depending on the patient’s need. For example, the removal of skin and fat from the back with a buttock lift as well as the removal of skin and fat from the middle part of the body is reduced and outer thighs are raised, as well as skin extracted together with belly fat. A small incision in the navel is made to reconstruct and tighten the abdominal wall. This body lift procedure may take anywhere from 5 to 7 hours. At Eres we also offer a liposuction or liposculpture procedure that improves and smooths out body contouring. Other procedures, such as breast augmentation and abdominoplasty are often performed in combination with body lifting or body sculpting to achieve better results.

Common Questions and Answers about Body Sculpting Surgery

Are photographs for the surgical procedure taken?
Our cosmetic surgeons usually take photographs of the area to be treated. These photographs are technically useful before and during surgery and they are also used as photographic historical data preoperatively and postoperatively.
Is it ok if I smoke before surgery?
It’s very important to stop smoking for several weeks before your body lift surgery. The harmful effects of cigarettes produce toxins that affect micro circulation and this reduces proper nutrition and oxygenation of tissues, which may hinder the healing and recovery process.
How long can recovery for a body lift surgery take?
It all depends on how many surgeries were combined with your body lift surgery. Some of these procedures will require more recovery time than others. The first week is the hardest one. There are still incisions on the front and back of the body therefore you will experience some pain and discomfort. There will be also swelling and redness, and bruising in your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Generally, 75 percent of the swelling subsides within the first 6 weeks and 95 percent of the swelling goes away after three months of recovery.
What are some benefits of body sculpting?
This procedure can help your body have smoother contours. Surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia, which helps eliminate the risks associated with general anesthesia. Patients undergoing this procedure may recovery faster and return to regular activities sooner.
Can several areas be treated at the same time?
This is generally possible. First, your will have a medical consultation with one of the surgeons at Eres Plastic Surgery and then the doctor will walk you through the whole process. Depending on the areas the patient wants to remove, he or she may need more than one procedure. Patient safety is our first priority.
What happens during the postoperative period?
Patients can do light activity right after the procedure has been completed. During the first 24 hours, there is a tinged fluid or numbing solution draining form the incisions. Leaking is a good thing and it will stop in about 24 to 36 hours. This fluid will be absorbed by your lymphatic system and drained in through the urine. This swelling can last up to 6 months yet the results are generally visible after 3 weeks. The retraction and tightening phases start after the swelling is gone and it may take several months, depending on the health of the individual in recovery.
When can I go back to work or to the gym?
Most patients are able to go back to work within 3 days after the procedure is performed. If the patient has performed this procedure on many areas, it will take longer time for him or her to recover. Patients are able to move around on the night of the surgery. They can do low impact exercise, such as yoga and walking, one week after surgery. You should avoid high-impact exercise during the first 3 weeks.
What happens if I gain weight after? Will fat grow in other areas?
There is a chance that if the individual gains too much weight, the fat can grow back on areas that are not treated. However, if the person ages gracefully and keeps skin elasticity, the results can be long-lasting. Those individuals or patients who do not have good skin elasticity can experience loosening of their skin over time.
