Dr. Balinger has a number of methods he can use to suit your requirements and treatment goals for a body lift in Houston.
Upper body lift
This type of body lift focuses on contouring the upper half of the body. Dr. Balinger may work on your arms, fat rolls, or breasts to achieve an enhanced appearance. The precise problem areas addressed can vary from person to person. For women, an upper body lift usually includes surgery to improve the appearance of sagging breasts.
Mid body lift
While working out can help you lose fat, it usually does not get rid of loose skin left behind after the fat is gone. For people who lack good skin elasticity, there is no other option for addressing this excess skin. A mid body lift is done to contour areas around the abdomen and lower back. It may be performed along with a lower body lift to address multiple aesthetic issues.
Lower body lift
This procedure is also known as a circumferential lift. It focuses on lower body areas such as the hips, thighs, and buttocks. While popular with patients, a lower body lift is one of the most expensive of the three types of body lift. In addition to getting rid of loose skin, this surgery also lifts the buttocks to create a more proportionate and attractive lower body appearance.
Dr. Christopher Balinger is uniquely positioned to recommend the best body lift procedure for you. He is happy to discuss the suitability of each approach during your consultation visit to our Houston, TX plastic surgery office.
