WHAT TO EXPECT

About the Procedure

This procedure is performed in our outpatient surgery center under general anesthetic. It generally involves an incision circumferentially around the waist that allows for the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue. The extent of the incision can be modified depending on your personal desired results. Depending on your needs, breast lift, arm lift and often times facelifts may be added.

Time of Procedure

This procedure takes three hours with another 2 to 3 hours of recovery time before going home.

Recovery Time

Swelling and bruising may last up to three weeks. Return to work can be expected within 2 to 3 weeks. Full results are expected within 9 to 12 months.

Typical Results

A tighter, slimmer, more contoured waist and abdomen. Results may vary. With a consult, our doctor will give you a more realistic expectation of your personal outcome.
