Upper and Lower Body Lift Procedures
A lower body lift is typically performed by making an incision across the abdomen and around the trunk. Through this opening, Dr. Devlin will remove any fatty deposits and loose hanging skin to create more flattering contours. Depending on your body type, the location and size of the incision can be adjusted to produce optimal results while minimizing scarring.
Upper body lifts are performed through incisions located on the back, arms, and chest, depending on which areas are being treated. Dr. Devlin will sculpt the tissues in the treatment area to create a smooth, younger-looking appearance that is more toned and defined.
Once your procedure is complete, Dr. Devlin will close the incisions with sutures and tissue glue instead of staples (like many other surgeons use), taking great care to minimize any scarring. Depending on the extent of your treatment and health history, you may be required to stay in the hospital over night. However, it can still be performed on an out-patient basis in many cases. Patients should plan on resting and recovering at home for several days following surgery. You will need to attend periodic follow-up appointments with Dr. Devlin to maximize your healing process and potentially reduce complications.
