After your weight loss journey, a body lift at Houston's Arroyo Plastic Surgery can eliminate accumulated loose and stretched skin to restore taut, youthful contours and give the patient a natural, shapely silhouette. Dr. Arroyo has extensive experience and a one-of-a-kind aesthetic eye for body contouring procedures to help you put the finishing touches on your new shape.
How long will results last?
While a body lift gets rid of excess skin and stubborn fat in various parts of the body, it does not prevent new fat and skin from forming. Dr. Arroyo advises his patients to take good care of their bodies – through a controlled diet and plenty of exercise – to have long-lasting results from this treatment.
Will I have scarring?
Scarring is inevitable following a surgical procedure. However, Dr. Arroyo uses the most advanced surgical techniques to make sure your scar is as thin as possible and well-concealed along fold lines or in areas of the body where they are properly hidden. He will let you know how to care for your incisions and scar sites to ensure improvements over time.
How much is a post-weight loss body lift?
The cost of post weight loss surgery at Houston's Arroyo Plastic Surgery can vary depending on the number of different procedures that need to be performed, as well as each patient’s unique anatomy. Patients can expect to pay between $8,000 and $30,000. Health insurance companies typically do not cover body lift because it is considered an elective cosmetic procedure (and not a medical necessity). During your initial body lift consultation with Dr. Arroyo, the surgeon’s team will provide a cost estimate so you can arrange for financing.
Are the procedures performed at the same time?
Your body lift treatment may be performed in a single surgical session or spread out over multiple surgical sessions. Dr. Arroyo will create a treatment plan that works best for you based on your unique anatomy and the number of procedures that need to be included in the body lift.
