Also known as torsoplasty, belt lipectomy or circumferential body lift is a major surgical undertaking. The operation usually lasts 3-5 hours, and is performed under general anaesthesia. It is typically performed in stages usually starting with the patient positioned prone during which time excess fat and skin is removed from the back and sides. The patient is then turned supine and an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is performed to remove surplus skin and fat from the abdomen. The exposed underlying rectus muscles may need to and can be tightened at this stage. The procedure may be combined with liposuction of some areas. Depending on patients size and needs, a thigh lift may be performed at the same time although Dr Jaberansari usually likes to defer this to another sitting thus to avoid overwhelming the body during its recovery phase.
Body Lift Complications
Like all major surgeries, torsoplasty is associated with the usual risks such as bleeding, infection, wound breakdown and risks related to GA. Patients should be advised that a body lift does leave a circumferential scar along the lower abdomen that is prone to stretching in some individuals but fades in most by 6-12 months.
Body Lift Recovery
Following body lift surgery, patients typically spend 2-3 nights in the hospital. Patients are advised to wear the elastic garment provided for 6 weeks post-operatively. One can typically return to work within 2-4 weeks and resume exercising within 4-6 weeks.
Breast reconstruction is nowadays an integral part of the treatment protocol offered to patients diagnosed with breast cancer. It can be carried out as immediate or delayed reconstruction. It may be achieved through a variety of plastic surgery techniques that endeavour to restore a breast of near-normal shape, appearance and size following partial or complete mastectomy. It is important to realise that results may be highly variable depending on technique employed, each with its drawbacks as well advantages. Dr Jaberansari would be happy to talk you through each technique and counsel which method would be most suited to address your needs and concerns. Please be advised that although aesthetic results may be very pleasing, a reconstructed breast will not have the same sensation and feel as the breast it replaces. In addition, visible incision lines may remain noticeable on the breast, be it from the reconstruction or mastectomy itself.Certain techniques will leave incision lines at the donor site in instances where a flap reconstruction (using your own tissue from a donor area) is to be employed. This is commonly located in less exposed areas of the body such as the back, abdomen, or buttocks. Usually the unaffected breast will need to undergo a breast lift, reduction or augmentation at a later stage to address any asymmetry as a direct consequence of reconstruction. As such, it is prudent to expect breast reconstruction to be a multi-stage procedure.Dr Jaberansari usually carries out breast reconstruction at Da Vinci Private Clinic in Pecs, in the south of Hungary. Techniques he commonly employs include the use of expanders, latissimus dorsi flap and DIEP flap. Upon a face-to-face consultation, Dr Jaberansari will be able to assess your suitability for each technique and advise what options he is able to offer you.
