"...Dr. Yamini put all my fears to rest with the first
appointment. He turned out to have direct experience with body lift
operations and the before and after pictures he showed me indicated
a great deal of skill in this area. He was also friendly and I felt
we understood each other well from the start. I could see he was
clearly concerned about giving you the best possible results while
ensuring my health and safety at the same time..." Read

Body Lift Los Angeles
Thigh Lift Los Angeles
Sunset’s Los Angeles body lift procedure addresses
a serious problem created by major weight loss - with significant
weight loss over a relatively short period of time, the remaining
skin doesn't always retain the elastic qualities needed to shrink
back to a patient's new, smaller shape. This often leaves patients
with excessive amounts of hanging skin, which can be corrected with
our Los Angeles body lift procedure. Circumferential body lift is
a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from
the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten muscles of the abdominal
wall. Los Angeles body lift results can be extremely dramatic,
andwhen done properly, the scar is hidden in the underwear area. A Los Angeles body
lift is a major procedure and therefore it is often done at a hospital.
The circumferential body lift is not a surgical treatment for being overweight. Obese individual who intend to lose weight should postpone all forms of body contouring surgery, including body lift, until they are within 10% of their goal/healthy weight and have been able to maintain their weight loss for at least 6 months.
Typical Recovery Time After Body Lift Los Angeles
After undergoing body lift at our plastic surgery Los Angeles facility, the recovery period is typically longer than after a tummy tuck because of the extent of the internal sewing. Patients typically return to normal activity at approximately 6 to 12 weeks. This is to allow the incisions and surrounding tissues to heal.

Above (2 sets): Dr. Yamini: Abdominoplasty and buttock and thigh lift Los Angeles as well as liposuction
Above (3 sets): Dr. Yamini: This patient had massive weight loss (gastric bypass). She had a fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty in 2008 to correct all the scars in the middle of the abdomen in addition to all the normal excess skin in the lower abdomen, followed by a breast lift (no implants). The 2nd and 3rd set of photos above show the results after her implants, which were placed a year or two later for more roundness and fullness using saline implants Style 68 MP (moderate profile), size 420cc.
Above set: Dr. Yamini: This patient experienced significant weight loss that left loose excess skin. This was the first of her body lift Los Angeles procedures that involved removing skin and fat from the entire circumference of the trunk, tightening the skin, including a full tummy tuck with tightening of the abdominal muscles. The next stage of this Los Angeles body lift patient’s surgery will probably be removal of loose skin in thigh area.
