Body Lift FAQ
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 – in order 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 makes sure to conceal those scars along fold lines or in areas of the body where they are properly hidden. More so, the surgeon will let you know how to care for your incisions and scar sites in order to ensure that there are improvements over time.
