Upper body lift surgery

Upper body lifting

After a severe weight loss - due to dieting or bariatric surgery, such as gastric band and gastric bypass - the body contours often are no longer harmonious. The weight has been corrected, but the skin remains sagging. An upper body lift improves the silhouette and guarantees a harmonious look.

Do you undergo intensive sports training, follow a strict diet or have decided for a gastric band or gastric bypass? As a consequence, the pounds started dropping and you have finally achieved your ideal weight.

Despite this, you may still be unsatisfied after a severe weight loss, because the proportions of your body are no longer harmonious.

Speziell nach bariatrischen Operationen (Magenband, Magenbypass) kann ein oberes Bodylifting das gesamte Erscheinungsbild positiv beeinflussen. Es hebt das Selbstwertgefühl und die Freude an der erreichten Gewichtsabnahme.

An upper body lift includes the lifting of the back, breast, and upper arms

In an upper body lift will be tightned the back, breast, and upper arms, or only the single relevant areas. In this complex surgery, the contours of the entire upper body will be newly defined with only one procedure.

To achieve the maximal lifting effect and so improve the texture of the skin, the entire upper body will be newly sculpted. But, how satisfactory the results will be at the end depends on several factors. Among these, maintaining a constant weight, the consequent adherence to the postoperative measures and an optimal wound healing.
