Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica
Over time, your delicate skin loses elasticity, causing sagging in areas that were once toned and firm. If you gained weight but then lost it again, you may also have significant amounts of excess, sagging skin. At our Los Angeles plastic surgery center, Dr. Eugene Kim offers state-of-the-art lifting procedures to help patients reshape and rejuvenate specific areas affected by aging, sun damage, and environmental factors. For sagging in the face, we offer the facelift to effectively turn back the clock. For loss of contour in specific body areas, we perform the thigh lift, buttock lift, and arm lift.
Dr. Kim can provide a more toned appearance for people with loose skin in the inner and outer thighs. Liposuction is recommended first if you have excess fat you would like to minimize. The thigh lift targets the excess skin that results from weight loss, liposuction, or simple aging and genetics. Incisions are hidden in the groin area, and drooping skin is gently excised. The remaining thigh skin is then reshaped and tightened for a final result that is aesthetically pleasing.
A buttock lift is recommended for patients who have sagging skin in the butt cheeks. Similar to the thigh lift, the extra skin in the buttocks and lower back is excised and the remaining skin is tightened. Some patients choose to combine a buttock lift with liposuction of the butt, hips, or thighs. The incisions are placed strategically so that scars are not visible in a bikini.
If you have sagging skin in the upper arm area, an arm lift addresses this issue by surgically removing this extra skin. To perform an arm lift, Dr. Kim makes small incisions and removes any excess skin and fat. For patients who are more concerned with localized arm fat, liposuction may be a better option.
