Losing a lot of weight is a major accomplishment that you should be happy about. Unfortunately, there are many instances where individuals do not feel as confident in their bodies as they imagined they would. Having loose and sagging skin can continue to leave you feeling self-conscious even when you shouldn’t. If you are interested in tightening up your skin after massive weight loss, body rejuvenation may be just the thing that you need.
What Is Body Rejuvenation?
Body rejuvenation is a surgical procedure that targets various areas of the body. This procedure can help to address loose and sagging skin on the upper and lower body at once, eliminating the need for multiple surgical procedures to achieve favorable results.
Body rejuvenation typically involves a lower body lift procedure and an upper arm lift. The lower body lift focuses on tightening up the legs and the stomach, while the upper arm lift focuses on removing excess skin, or “bat wings,” from the arms.
What Can This Treatment Help?
Body rejuvenation is an effective way to tighten up skin all around your body. Your surgeon will help to tighten up your legs, waist, and stomach area by removing excess skin and using incisions along your waistline to provide the most discrete appearance. In the arms, the excess skin is removed in the area extended down the inside of the arm from the elbow to the armpit. Short incisions are then made as inconspicuous as possible.
What to Expect During Your Recovery
After your surgery, you can expect some pain and discomfort. The healing process can take several weeks. During this time, you need to avoid any strenuous activities to ensure you are able to heal correctly and without complications. You may experience swelling and some discomfort. However, these symptoms will subside over time.
