Also known as torso contouring or trunk lift, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the torso, including the abdomen, hips, and back. It is typically performed on patients who have lost a significant amount of weight or who have excess skin and fat in the torso area due to aging or genetics.
During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions in the torso and remove excess skin and fat. The remaining skin and tissues will be pulled tight and sutured to create a more toned and contoured appearance. The surgeon may also use liposuction to remove stubborn pockets of fat and sculpt the torso further.
Before the procedure
Patients should consult with their surgeon to discuss their goals and expectations for the surgery. They may need to undergo certain medical tests to ensure that they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. The surgeon may also provide specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, such as what medications to avoid and what to eat and drink before surgery.
After the procedure
Patients will need to take time to recover. They may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days to a few weeks. The surgeon may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort. Patients should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for several weeks after surgery to prevent complications. They may also need to wear a compression garment to help with healing and reduce swelling.
The results of torsoplasty can be long-lasting, but they can be affected by weight gain or loss and the natural aging process. Patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain their new body shape. They should also follow their surgeon’s instructions for post-operative care to prevent complications and promote healing.
