Plastic surgery has been around for over a hundred years and has been growing exponentially more popular since the early 2000s. Procedures and techniques grow more advanced with each passing year and surgeons continue to find new ways to bring out the very best in their patients.
One of the latest plastic surgery trends is combination surgery, which involves using two or more procedures to accomplish an entire revamping of one area of the body. For the middle and lower body, there is torsoplasty, a procedure also known as a body lift at my Boston plastic surgery practice.
Torsoplasty uses several different procedures to reshape everything from the abdomen to the thighs. It can involve a tummy tuck, thigh lift, butt lift, and liposuction, or any combination of these procedures. The overall goal of a torsoplasty is to give your body the best possible appearance by trimming, boosting, or removing existing tissue.
Torsoplasty can benefit anyone, but the most common patients are those who have recently experienced significant weight loss. Weight loss is a fantastic accomplishment and one that should be celebrated, but it can also leave your body with some unpleasant reminders of your former self. Skin that was stretched to accommodate the extra fat deposits now hangs loose on your frame; stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away leave odd bulges or leave you with extra weight around your middle. Through different lift surgeries and liposuction, a skilled surgeon can give you the body that you were striving for when you began your weight loss journey.
The whole process begins with a patient consultation. During this time, the surgeon will conduct a complete assessment of the patient, including their medical history and a full physical examination. The goals for surgery will also be discussed. After gathering all the information, the surgeon will determine which procedures will be needed to reach the optimal body shape for the patient. Some patients may only require a tummy tuck and a thigh lift, while others may need a butt lift and liposuction around the hips. Some patients may require one surgery while others may need two or three. Each patient and each body is different, so it will be important that the right proportions and balance are achieved through the surgeries.
