Upper Body Lift

Are you a fitness enthusiast who works out regularly and can now see your body slowly take an attractive shape? Have you lost a lot of weight and are now looking fabulous except for some excess skin on your arms, back and even chest/breast? 

When a person works so hard on their body and doesn’t exactly get the dreamy model like results it is quite frustrating. Loss of fat in a short span of time can lead to loose, hanging skin and stubborn residual deposits of fat on the upper body. These make the otherwise attractive body look unattractive. 

Understanding this issue and the frustration it brings to the person, Dr Santosh Bhatia, the Board-certified Plastic Surgeon and Director of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai offers a complete solution in the form of “Upper Body Lift” to tackle all of these issues at once. 

Complete Solutions are Vanity Cosmetic Clinic’s premium range of package solutions that were designed to eliminate multiple problems in a single plan.

What to
expect before the upper body lift surgery?

In the case of Upper Body Lift surgery, the pre-surgery prep is not much for the patient. Dr Santosh Bhatia may ask you to undergo a couple of routine blood and urine tests in order to establish basic parameters for the surgery. He may ask you to discontinue a few medicines which might conflict with your recovery process later. And if you are a smoker, you will be asked to quit smoking in the weeks leading up to the surgery. 

But other than that, no special preparation is required from the patient’s side.

How Is

Planning for every surgery in the package is vital and Dr Santosh Bhatia creates an extensive schedule of which surgeries can be performed together and which need to be done separately. Based on this schedule you will be asked to come in on different days for different procedures. If there is a gap between two procedures, you will be asked to follow certain diet restrictions and physical activity restrictions so as to ensure optimal recovery in the meantime. 

The details of each procedure can be found on their individual pages. 

  1. Arm Lift
  2. Breast Lift
