There are a variety of different techniques used by Dr. Talebzadeh for circumferential body lift procedures. Circumferential body lift can be combined with other forms of body-contouring surgery including liposuction or performed at the same time with other elective surgeries.
Every surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk and it is important that the patient understand the risks involved with a circumferential body lift procedure. An individual’s choice to undergo a surgical procedure is based on the comparison of the risk to potential benefit. Although the majority of patients do not experience the following complications, a patient should discuss each of them with Dr. Talebzadeh to make sure the patient understands all possible consequences of a circumferential body lift. We want to be open and honest with you about all possible complications so that you can make a truly informed decision about what is, at the end of the day, a very drastic surgical option.
Bleeding-It is possible, though unusual, to experience a bleeding episode during or after surgery. Should post-operative bleeding occur, it might require emergency treatment to drain accumulated blood or may require a blood transfusion. Do not take any aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications for ten days before surgery, as this may increase the risk of bleeding.
Infection-Infection is unusual after this type of surgery. Should an infection occur, treatment including antibiotics or additional surgery may be necessary.
Change in skin sensation-Diminished (or loss of) skin sensation in the lower abdominal area may not totally resolve after circumferential body lift.
Skin contour irregularities-Contour irregularities and depressions may occur after circumferential body lift. Visible and palpable wrinkling of skin can also occur.
Skin scarring-Excessive scarring is uncommon. In rare cases however, abnormal scars may result. Scars may be unattractive and of different coloring than surrounding skin. Additional treatments including surgery may be necessary to treat abnormal scarring.
Asymmetry-Factors such as skin tone, fatty deposits, bony prominences, and muscle tone may contribute to normal asymmetry in body features.
Delayed healing-Wound disruption or delayed wound healing is possible. Some areas of the abdomen may not heal normally or may take a long time to heal, and may necessitate further surgery.
Allergic reactions– In rare cases, local allergies to tape, suture material, or topical preparations have been reported. Systemic reactions that are more serious may occur in response to drugs used during surgery and prescription medicines. Allergic reactions may require additional treatment.
Pain-Chronic pain may occur very infrequently from nerves becoming trapped in scar tissue after a circumferential body lift.
I liked the confidence of the doctor and his staff when making the decision to undergo my procedure. I was very comfortable with my procedure and it was an excellent experience. Would recommend him to anyone! Thank you
