In our continuing series highlighting plastic surgery procedures in Singapore, Expat Choice caught up with internationally acclaimed Plastic Surgeon Dr Marco Faria Correa to discuss the treatment and procedures associated with Body Lifting or Body Contouring.
According to Dr Marco, Body Lifting or Body Contouring is a surgical treatment, or a sequence of cosmetic and medical surgical treatments, which aim to restore a youthful appearance to the body.
The Body Lifting procedure is available to both, men and women who have, what would appear to be excess folds in the skin, and in turn would like to reshape their body by tightening the excess skin which has caused the folds.
When is a good time to consider Body Lifting?
After obesity and pregnancies, when a person gains, or loses a significant amount of body weight, they are often burdened by excess skin on their body.
The excess skin results in the appearance of folds, leading to flabbiness, making it a challenge to dress comfortably in clothing. In some cases, skin infections can occur within the folds of the skin, and in more severe cases the flabbiness may cause mobility problems.
According to Dr. Marco, Body Lifting or Body Contouring is a reshaping surgery that may, and generally does significantly improve patient´s day-to-day physical comfort helping to promote a more fulfilling quality of daily life.
Depending on the number of areas to be repaired, Body Lifting surgery is quite often a one-time surgery involving a combination of procedures or surgery performed in multiple stages with a sequence of procedures, performed on the patient to remove the excess skin, tighten, and ultimately improve the body contour.
Body Lifting procedures include:
- tummy tuck
- thigh lift
- butt lift
- breast lift
- breast implant
- arm lift
- liposuction and fat grafting
After removing the redundant skin and flabbiness, Body Lifting helps promote a natural silhouette, improves the patient’s body image, and as a result increases self-esteem and self-confidence.
