People of today are not that hesitant about fat removal and skin-lift procedures. It has happened in the past that some patients of such procedures suffered from surgical failures because they did not meet eligibility requirements or their surgeons were not that skillful. Today, most of these problems are history. However, skin-lift problems can sometimes be inevitable since it’s still a cosmetic procedure.
Skin-lift procedures can be performed in several areas of the body. Middle-aged people who suffer from saggy skin are the most common candidates of skin-lift jobs. Some procedures also take help from skin-lift procedures. For example, a tummy tuck procedure is a combination of skin-lift and liposuction procedures. There are of course certain elements that needed for skin-lift job eligibility. However, the most important thing when it comes to qualifying for a skin-lift procedure is skin elasticity.
If a person does not have elastic skin, it is impossible to perform a skin-lift job on this person. Once the skin is stretched, the excess skin is surgically removed from a candidate’s body. The separate sides of the skin are sutured together. Liposuction procedures can also be performed if needed before the completion of the whole procedure.
One other problem that is associated with skin-lift jobs is possible scars after procedures. Patients are more likely to have a scar on their skin-lifted area. The type of the patient’s skin, the skills of the surgeon and the procedure principles determine the size and visibility of the skin-lift scars.
However, aesthetic procedures may be able to make skin-lift scars disappear. This generally depends on how severe your scar is. Depending on the case, surgeons may be able to remove your scar with additional aesthetic procedures. However, not all surgeons may accept to perform such procedures.
