Common reasons for a trunk lift
There are a variety of reasons you may want to undergo a trunk lift with Dr. Schwartz. In general, individuals seek out this procedure due to:
Substantial weight loss
After losing a substantial amount of weight, it’s very common for individuals to experience large folds and excess skin throughout their lower body. Because these effects reflect a change in your skin elasticity and muscle tone, they require a trunk lift to correct and cannot be addressed through diet and exercise alone.
Carrying a baby for nine months takes a heavy toll on a woman’s body, often resulting in sagging skin and excess fat on the thighs, hips and buttocks. When this occurs, a trunk lift can address the problematic excess volume, restoring your body to its more smooth and shapely pre-pregnancy state.
The natural aging process
As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity and begins to droop. This occurs throughout the body, and can be especially prominent in the area of the hips, thighs and buttocks. Fortunately, a well-done trunk lift can address these undesirable changes, restoring a more youthful and lifted body contour.
An overview of a trunk lift
To prepare for your trunk lift, Dr. Schwartz will thoroughly explain what you can expect from the procedure during your initial consultation. During that time, he will carefully evaluate your unique needs and make recommendations to ensure an optimal outcome.
To begin your actual surgery, one of our board certified anesthesiologists will administer general anesthesia to ensure your total comfort and safety. Dr. Schwartz will then make a number of careful incisions across your lower abdomen, across your waist and down your inner thighs. Through those openings, he will remove excess fat, tighten the underlying muscles, lift the buttocks and re-contour the entire area. Once he’s achieved the precise look you discussed during your initial consultation, he will eliminate any excess skin and expertly close the incisions to ensure the resulting scars are virtually imperceptible and/or easy to conceal with clothing.
