What Results Can I Expect?
You will immediately see a noticeable change following your body-lift surgery, though it may take up to two years for final results to fully develop. You can expect that some visible scars will remain. Most patients find the minimal scarring to be well worth their improved confidence and satisfaction in their appearance. As long as you maintain a stable weight and general fitness routine, your results will be long-lasting.
What Does Recovery Look Like?
A body-lift is an extensive procedure and requires a substantial amount of recovery time. You may need 2-8 weeks to return to work, and several months before resuming strenuous activities. Your recovery is largely dependent on your body’s unique healing capabilities. It’s important to follow Dr. Lawton’s individualized post-operative care instructions so your skin and underlying tissue can heal properly for beautiful, healthy results.
