Body Contouring

Body Contouring

Whether achieved through bariatric surgery or diet, massive weight loss often results in areas of loose, excess skin. Some patients come in from West Bloomfield and Dearborn, MI and learn during the consultation that body contouring such as Tummy Tuck, Arm lift,Thigh Lift, Breast Lift and Augmentation may be a good option to remove the excess skin on different areas of the body and allow patients to fully enjoy their new look.

The post weight circumferential abdominoplasty, also known as a lower body lift, is well suited for patients that are looking for simultaneous improvement in the abdomen, lateral thighs, and buttocks.  The actual procedure combines an abdominoplasty, a buttock lift, and a lateral thigh lift which can be performed at one surgical operation. 

Risks involved with Body Contouring:

No surgical procedure is risk free, and that includes body contouring. Although cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, every patient must understand that these procedures are real surgical operations that involve the potential for complications. However, most cosmetic surgery procedures are categorized as low risk when performed in an accredited facility, by a board certified plastic surgeon with the appropriate training qualifications.

Surgical risks can be categorized broadly into general risks and specific risks. General risks are the potential complications that are common to all surgical procedures, such as infection, bleeding, wound healing problems, and anesthetic complications. Specific risks are the potential complications that are unique to the specific facial surgery operations. A more detailed discussion about the specific risks and general risks of your specific facial procedure will be carried out during your surgical consultation.

The risk of complications from a facial surgery can be minimized with a combination of the proper knowledge, skill, sound surgical practices and by closely following your surgeon’s instructions on follow-up care during the recovery period.

With an established track record of over 70 years, board certified plastic surgeons, an accredited facility, and thousands of satisfied patients throughout Dearborn and Detroit, Michigan and the U.S., the Straith Clinic has earned a reputation for cosmetic surgery of the face and body.
