Do you worry about heavy, drooping, or extra skin? It’s normal for skin to sag with age — and if you’ve undergone massive weight loss or had bariatric surgery, it’s also normal to have more skin than you need for your new size, regardless of age.
At the same time, it can be frustrating and even disconcerting to look in the mirror and notice that you don’t look as youthful as you feel or that you don’t quite fit into your own skin.
We want you to know that The Lucas Center is here as an option if and when you’re ready to remove excess skin with a rejuvenating lift. Our goal is to help you create real, lasting confidence, and a cosmetic lift may be a great “boost” in the right direction.
Let’s look at three lift options we offer that may help you feel more at home and confident in your own skin.
Face and Neck Lift
A face and neck lift procedure may be right for you if you’re looking to reduce sagging skin under your chin or jaw and want to feel refreshed, with natural-looking results.
How does it work?
We create real, natural-looking results by repositioning loose, hanging skin in the cheek, jaw, and neck areas. We then use fat grafting to restore volume to areas of the face that have lost it. This technique ensures you look and feel your best for as long as possible after the procedure.
An eyebrow lift may be a good fit for you if you’re hoping to reduce drooping skin above your eyes with the benefit of brightening up your eye area, making you look less tired or worried. Subtle changes to this area can often make a big difference while yielding a natural, younger appearance — all with minimal, hidden scarring.
How does it work?
Small incisions are made in your hairline. Then, endoscopic technology releases and repositions the skin on your forehead. This endoscopic technique is minimally-invasive and produces the best possible results for anyone experiencing loose skin around the forehead and brow area.
Similar to the other two lifts we’ve discussed, a body lift — which includes an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), lateral thighplasty, and flank/gluteal rejuvenation — is used to offset the negative effects of aging or extreme weight loss. This may be a good choice for you if you’ve already been thinking about how to reduce excess skin, cellulite, or fat around your midsection.
How does it work?
A body lift removes excess skin and fat on the lower torso, buttocks, and upper thigh regions, accentuating and shaping these areas to create a natural hourglass form that may help you fit better into your skin or appear more youthful once again.
Real Confidence, Real Results
At The Lucas Center, we know confidence isn’t solely about how you look. It’s also about how you feel in your own body and about knowing your self-worth. You are worthy, and you deserve to feel confident in who you are.
For an idea of what it’s like to work with us, check out what Lacey had to say:
Dr. Lucas is so talented. He truly cares about his patients and giving them the best and most natural results possible. There truly is no one else in the area with the level of knowledge he has. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon I can’t recommend him enough.
Stacy also shared her story about her own journey to confidence:
I was overweight for a long time. After losing 75 lbs I had excess skin that I was really embarrassed about. Dr. Lucas took care of that and helped me feel happy with my body. I knew I could trust him from the first consultation. So thankful for the work he did that gave me the confidence to wear clothing that I had never worn before.
