A body lift can be a great way to regain a youthful appearance following massive weight loss or even pregnancies. Our Newport Beach Body Lifts are performed with the individual patient’s needs in mind, and Dr. Tavoussi always considers how to perform the body lift while leaving the least noticeable scars possible. Most of the time, the scars following surgery can be covered up easily with one’s underwear.
While deciding whether or not to have a body lift is a big decision, the procedure can perform wonders for one’s physical and emotional health. Dr. Tavoussi will help to eliminate excess fat, skin and underlying tissues around the abdomen, hips, buttocks and love handles while tightening the muscles, particularly around the abdomen. This can make it easier to get dressed and to move about during the day and can eliminate some unnecessary weight that takes a toll on the joints. In addition, a Newport Beach Body Lift can benefit one’s emotional health by improving confidence in public and even in private situations by improving body image.
Dr. Tavoussi performs Newport Beach Body Lifts at Pacifica Outpatient Surgical Center, which serves the entire Orange County area. The procedure is done under general anesthesia and take two hours at a minimum. Some patients have a breast lift or augmentation done at the same time, and this can make the procedure last as long as five hours. Newport Beach patients will be allowed to recover for a few hours at the Surgery Center, but most are discharged to their own homes that evening. Many are surprised to learn that they will be walking around that very evening and that their pain will be well-controlled using an intra-incision pain pump, which helps to numb the affected areas. They will also be given a prescription for pain medication to control their discomfort fully.
