Obesity is a serious health epidemic, and one linked to the development of dozens of serious, life threatening diseases. Losing weight when you have obesity is critical to your physical health. But it can come with a few strings. Those that lose weight quickly – especially those that have undergone bariatric surgery – often end up with bodies that are thick with excess skin and tissue.

For many, bariatric surgery and massive weight loss improve their physical health, but not their mental health, as living with a significant amount of excess skin can be stressful and damaging to your self- esteem. Luckily, there is a solution, known as a “body lift,” that can help post-bariatric patients overhaul their body and feel confident in their skin once again.

What is a Body Lift?

The “Body Lift” is a combination of procedures designed to address the excess skin and tissue left over after substantial weight loss. It involves:

  • Circumferential Tummy Tuck (Belt Lipectomy) – A variation of the traditional tummy tuck that removes skin from all the way around the body.
  • Thigh Lift – Firm thighs is important not only for feeling more confident, but also for making it easier to walk and exercise. Thigh lifts remove excess skin from around the inner and outer thighs.
  • Butt Lift – Butt lifts are also considered a part of the average body lift, where the buttocks is raised and restructured to be more youthful.

There are both upper body lifts and lower body lifts, as well as “total body lifts” for those with significant issues in skin laxity. The upper body lift may involve additional procedures, such as a breast lift, arm lift, and more.

Body Lift for Post-Bariatric Patients

Body lifts are highly complex procedures, and only a select number of plastic surgeons can perform them. They require substantial training and understanding of both aesthetics and human anatomy. Dr. Joaquin Ayala underwent years of substantial medical training, and worked in cooperation with bariatric surgeons to assist with patients that require this type of procedure.

Yet although it is a specialty of such few surgeons, the body lift is quickly becoming a standard part of post-bariatric surgery care. Indeed, many psychologists and doctors recommend that bariatric surgery patients begin saving for body lifts even before the weight has been lost. Even though weight loss is vital for both health and quality of life, the body lift provides the final touches that help weight loss patients regain their life.

Why Undergo a Body Lift in Tijuana, Mexico?

Even though the body lift is so critical a procedure for completing your weight loss efforts, it is also very expensive. In the United States, the body lift can cost upwards of $30,000 or more. It is also only available from a select number of plastic surgeons, which means there may not be a specialist in your area with this degree of medical training.

Located in Tijuana, Mexico, Dr. Ayala is a trained and experienced expert in the body lift procedure, having worked specifically with many patients that have lost weight after bariatric surgery. Yet due to the lower cost of medical care in Mexico, Dr. Ayala is able to provide this valuable body lift procedure for a small fraction of the cost of plastic surgery in the United States.

Yet he often provides even better medical care – not only due to this years of body lift experience in Tijuana, but also because he schedules fewer patients a day so that he can offer a greater level of attention to each patient.
