WHAT KIND OF TREATMENTS DO WE PROVIDE?
BODY REEMODELLING AFTER MAJOR WEIGHT LOSS
At the Instituto Pérez de la Romana, we are experts in these techniques.
What is body remodelling?
It is a set of techniques used to reshape all parts of the body that sag after significant weight loss. As a whole, these techniques are referred to as body remodeling. Body remodeling is a renovation of different parts of the body, removing leftover tissue and restoring the firmness and aesthetic harmony of the silhouette.
At the Instituto Pérez de la Romana, body remodeling is performed in two stages.
It is a combination of techniques in which the abdomen, back and gluteal muscles are corrected by way of a circumferential abdominoplasty. We also include a thigh lift, hence the name "lower bodylifting", because all of the lower part of the body is corrected.
This technique combines a chest lift, a mastopexy with prosthesis to reshape the breasts and a brachioplasty to remodel the arms. For this reason, these three techniques together make up what is known as an upper bodylift.
These procedures are carried out under general anesthetic, and the recovery period usually lasts one to two weeks. At the Instituto Pérez de la Romana we perform body remodeling in two stages, reducing complications and ensuring a good result.
We do the lower bodylift first, followed by the upper bodylift three months later. After the two procedures, the body is completely remodeled.
The aesthetic benefits are extraordinary, as are the benefits to self-esteem and the changes in the life it brings to these patients.
