Several factors may influence a weight loss: intensive dieting, a change in eating habits, and regular training. But, bariatric surgeries - such as a gastric band or a gastric bypass - also reduce effectively body weight.
Unfortunately, a severe weight loss does not always coincide with well-balanced body contours. A lower body lift, with tightening of the abdomen, the hips, and the back as well will guarantee a harmonious body shape.
We will be glad to answer any questions you may have on the topic of body lifting. Schedule a consultation appointment at Clinic Beethovenstrasse in Zurich at the telephone number +41 44 545 14 44 or online.
If after the long process of losing weight you have achieved your desired body weight, you may still not be completely satisfied with your look. Excess skin and hanging abdominal folds can disrupt your daily life: the clothes won't fit, and you may feel inhibited when practicing sports or even everyday activities. A lower body lift (abdomen, hips, and back) will not only enhance your appearance but improve your self-confidence as well.
With this sophisticated surgery, the contours of the whole lower body will be newly defined in just one procedure. By achieving the maximal lifting effect for the improvement of the skin surface, the whole lower body may be newly shaped.
How perfect the results will remain in the long period depends on a variety of factors; among which the initial body weight, secondary diagnoses, constant body weight and the strict adherence to the postoperative measures, as well as an optimal wound healing.
Between 4 and 5 hours
Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch performs the lower body lift in the clinic «Pyramide» or in the clinic «Im Park». After the surgery, you will have to stay in the clinic for 3 to 5 days.
At least 2 weeks
A lower body lift may cause postoperative hemorrhages, accumulations of wound fluids, as well as infections. Light swellings, tearing of sutures, feeling of tightness, aesthetically unpleasant scars, thromboses and embolisms may also occur.
The risk of complications, such as circulatory disorders of the lower abdomen and impaired wound healing, is significantly higher for patients suffering from severe nicotine addiction and chronic diseases.
After the surgery, you must wear day and night a special compression girdle for 6 weeks. During this time, sport, sauna, and intensive UV exposure are not allowed.
The costs for a lower body lift may vary depending on the extent of the surgery and will be agreed upon in advance. The price is inclusive of all services, such as the consultation, the surgery, the anesthesia, the medications, the hospitalization, the follow-up controls, and all potential corrective surgical procedures.
Depending on your previous medical history, the insurance may cover a portion of the costs. We will gladly clarify if your insurance will cover any of the costs.
