Embark on the final phase of your weight loss journey with a lower body lift in San Luis Obispo County. This transformative procedure is designed for those who have achieved significant weight loss but are left with excess skin and stubborn fat pockets that diet and exercise can’t address. Dr. Charles Chalekson specializes in sculpting a more youthful, contoured figure, using advanced techniques to tighten loose skin while preserving natural volume.
After substantial weight loss, skin often fails to retract on its own. A lower body lift can remove this excess tissue and enhance muscle and underlying tissue tone in a way that natural methods cannot. This procedure is not just about aesthetics; it can alleviate discomforts like rashes or chafing caused by skin folds, boosting your self-confidence and revealing the true results of your weight loss efforts.
Our approach is highly personalized. In your consultation, Dr. Chalekson will conduct a thorough evaluation and craft a treatment plan aligned with your aesthetic goals. Addressing areas such as the abdomen, pubic region, sides, and buttocks, the procedure often includes liposuction for a harmonious balance between the torso and thighs. Known variously as a truncal lift, belt lipectomy, or buttock lift, this approach removes and reshapes the lower abdominal, waist, and buttock area.
Ideal candidates include those who have stabilized their weight post weight-loss or pregnancy and are troubled by sagging skin below the waistline. Good overall health and controlled chronic conditions are key for candidacy.
While the results are impactful, the procedure does involve surgical scars, which Dr. Chalekson carefully places to minimize visibility. Nicotine users must abstain from smoking and nicotine products for a specified period before and after surgery to ensure optimal healing and reduce risks.
Post-surgery, you’ll receive comprehensive care instructions. Wearing a compression garment and possibly using drainage tubes will aid your recovery. Adjustments to sitting and sleeping positions are recommended to ease pressure on the healing incisions. It’s crucial to adhere to post-operative guidelines, including diet and activity restrictions, to promote healing and achieve the best results.
