Body Lift Procedures
Dr. Ghaderi understands that some patients who undergo bariatric surgery or have experienced dramatic weight loss may have unsightly, sagging skin. His years of experience allow him to help these patients with a body lift procedure. To view results of some of his body lift patients visit his photo gallery. The paragraphs below describe the body lift procedure and the potential benefits.
Many people who have invested time and effort into losing a large amount of weight are left disappointed and disillusioned by sagging skin that is present after weight loss. Fortunately, there are many ways to give certain areas of your body a much needed lift. At St. Charles Plastic Surgery, we offer body contouring procedures that will help you look your best after significant weight loss.
Our body lift procedures include:
Full Body Lift After Bariatric Surgery
Significant weight loss will greatly improve your health and overall quality of life, but can have a negative effect on soft tissues, often causing the skin in certain areas to look like a deflated balloon. Many patients visit us for body contouring procedures to remove these folds of excess skin. If you have undergone dramatic weight loss, we can help you achieve the trim figure you have worked so hard for.
The best candidates for full body contouring are men and women who are in relatively good shape and have stabilized their weight for at least one year.
Depending on your unique needs and desires, Dr. Ghaderi can tighten and smooth skin around your midsection, arms, legs, buttocks, neck, and face with plastic surgery options like liposuction, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, eyelid surgery, and facelift surgery.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Many women are unwilling to wear sleeveless dresses because they are bothered by loose skin on their upper arms. The silhouette of the upper arm can be improved with a technique known as brachioplasty (arm lift). This body contouring procedure allows Dr. Ghaderi to reshape your arm so that it is proportionate to the rest of your body. Depending on the elasticity of your skin, liposuction alone may be the procedure of choice for removing excess fatty tissue. Dr. Ghaderi will evaluate your specific case and recommend the technique that will work best for you.
The thigh lift technique allows Dr. Ghaderi to reduce the size of your upper thigh so that it is in proportion to your buttocks and the rest of your body.
Many women cringe at the thought of wearing tight pants or low-cut slacks because they are unhappy with the size and shape of their buttocks. The problem may persist even after dramatic weight loss. A buttock lift can re-contour the buttocks and create and more natural, youthful appearance.
