The tummy tuck and body lift procedures are great ways to eliminate the presence of loose or hanging skin on the abdomen and frequently represent one of the final steps in a patient’s exciting weight loss journey.
Your Tummy Tuck or Body Lift Experience
In advance of your procedure, you’ll meet with Dr. Rogers to go over the details of your surgery. You’ll collaborate on the development of a bespoke surgical plan, and he’ll take the time to explain everything you might want to know about your upcoming procedure, going over everything from surgical technique to incision placement and much more. In general, a tummy tuck can take anywhere from two to five hours to complete, while a body lift can take four to eight hours or more, depending on the areas being treated. Both tummy tuck and body lift surgeries are typically performed under general anesthesia. General anesthesia is a type of anesthesia that causes the patient to be completely unconscious. While both surgeries involve a slightly different approach, they each involve the careful removal of excess skin and unwanted fatty tissue in the abdomen and chest areas. Dr. Rogers will sculpt your ideal physique according to your personal surgical plan before carefully closing his incisions and completing the surgery.
