I recently had a rhinoplasty in Turkey, it was so hard to find the right surgeon to get it done by, and also to even get the courage to do it!! but fortunately I got in contact with Nadia, she helped me alot through this process, she is not only sweet but also professional and she was always available and responding to my questions... So far it was a good experience with Flymedi! Nothing to complain about! The process went smooth just as they offered me :)

Hi, I just recently had surgery and before I could decide the best safest choice for me. I googled a lot! Came across Flymedi and they made the overseas surgery bookings including hotel so much easier. My health consultant is very kind and sweet and still after the surgery, she still checks up on me. I am very satisfied with the results of the surgery and the clinic that they chose! This is mainly for those like me who want to have a certain surgery done that perhaps don't exist in the country you reside in. Flymedi helped me with finding a fit clinic, booked hotel and driver to pick me up and also drop me off to all the destinations such as the Airport. I had this surgery in late November 2019 in Istanbul, I highly recommend Flymedi to anyone who wants to be safe, satisfied and happy! Thank You to Fatima at Flymedi for all her help and Big Thank You to Flymedi for existing! You've definitely made this surgery and journey for me much more easy and comfortable!

Recommended For Body Lift

Body lift surgery or body contouring surgery is usually recommended for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery or lost a significant amount of weight. Any individual with excess sagging skin and tissue around different parts of the body can benefit from body contouring surgery or body lift surgery. The procedure can also help individuals with cellulite, especially if they cannot get rid of cellulite with the alternative treatments such as regular exercises, firming body lift kits or body creams such as Clarins body lift cellulite control

Not Recommended For Body Lift

Body lift surgery or body contouring is not recommended for patients who have heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes. Heavy smokers should stop smoking before and after undergoing this procedure. Patients suffering from an active infection are not good candidates for this procedure.

Discharge From Hospital

1 to 3 nights stay in the hospital is required

Duration Of Operation

5 to 7 hours

Minimum Stay

2 to 4 weeks

Overview

Body contouring surgery or body lift surgery refers to any procedure in which the shape of different areas of the body is enhanced and contoured according to the patient’s needs or expectations. 

Body contouring surgery after weight loss refers to a set of procedures aimed at eliminating or reducing excess skin, along with fatty tissue. Body contouring surgery after weight loss is a very popular choice for patients who have already undergone bariatric surgery. 

Body lift surgery can include one or more of the following procedures: 

● Facelift 

● Neck Lift
● Breast Lift 
● Abdominoplasty 

● Arm Lift

● Upper body lift
● Lower body lift 
● Medial thigh lift 



Although body contouring surgery or body lift surgery is a popular choice for formerly-obese patients, a number of factors such as pregnancy, sun damage and the natural aging process which can influence tissue elasticity and ultimately lead to sagging skin due to loss of collagen or facial fat. 

Preparation

Patients need to avoid blood thinners such as aspirin, herbal teas, herbal supplements and anti-inflammatory medicines for at least 2 weeks before body lift surgery. Patients also need to have a stable weight before undergoing body lift surgery.

How It Is Performed

Body lift surgeons usually perform the body contouring surgery in one session, under general anesthesia. 

Body contouring surgery can be broken down into several, individual components: 

● Brachioplasty or arm lift surgery 
● Mastopexy or breast lift surgery 
● Abdominoplasty 
● Lower body lift which includes the tummy, outer thighs, and the area around the midsection

Body lift surgery usually lasts anywhere between 1 and 7 hours, depending on the procedures included. Once the procedure is over, patients will be required to spend between 1 and 3 days in the hospital, under close medical supervision.

Recovery

The recovery period depends on the procedures performed. If it is performed as a single, simple procedure, patients can return to their normal life routine including work in around one week. If multiple procedures are performed, complete recovery may take between 3 and 9 weeks. Patients usually spend the first 1-2 weeks at home, at rest. They may have to wear certain compression garments and smoking is strongly prohibited within that period. Most patients return to normal activities in around 2 or 3 weeks.

Risks

Body contouring surgery risks and complications can include: 

● Excessive bleeding 
● Infection 
● Anesthesia-related complications 

● Blood clots

● Poor wound healing
● Seroma 
● Dehiscence 
● Scarring on the arms, chest, stomach or legs 

● Persistent pain
● Revision surgery 
● Permanent loss of sensitivity in certain areas 
● Asymmetry

Side Effects

Body lift surgery side effects can include: 

● Slight bleeding 
● Pain and discomfort in multiple areas 
● Temporary loss of sensitivity in the incision area 
● Bruising in multiple areas 
● Swelling

● Numbness around operated sites

● Difficulty in bending forward due to the tightened skin

Success Rates

Body contouring reviews set the average success rate at 96%.

Before And After

Body lift surgery results can be noticed immediately after the surgery. The swelling will gradually subside over the next few weeks. Patients need to take certain precautions in order not to gain any more weight once the body contouring surgery is over. Although effects such as age and gravity will eventually cause some loss of firmness, a healthy lifestyle will go a long way in helping the patient shorten his or her recovery period and in the same time reduce scarring.

Faq

When Can I Resume Exercise After the Body Contouring Procedure?
Patients need to avoid exercise or sports for at least 6 to 8 weeks after the procedure because bending, straining or lifting is not allowed during this period. Although sports need to be avoided during the first weeks, less physically draining activities are recommended during the recovery period. Patients are encouraged to take walks and engage in less physical activities. 


Can Body Lift Surgery Be Combined with Other Types of Surgery?
Yes, besides the procedure itself is a combination of abdominoplasty, thigh lift and buttocks lift, some patients opt to have breast augmentation surgery at the same time.

 

How Long Do the Results Of Body Lift Surgery Last?
Body contouring brings long-lasting results, but it still depends on a number of factors, including the patient’s lifestyle, diet, exercise, age. 

How Long Before My Scars Heal or Disappear?
The scars generally take up to 18 months before they become less noticeable, but they will never disappear completely. Most of the scars will be quite discrete after 18 months, and mostly hidden in the bikini lines.
