Body Contouring

If you have lost a substantial amount of weight either through your own efforts or following bariatric (weight loss) surgery, you may be very pleased with the results when you step on the scales. However, the outcome may not be as gratifying when you look in the mirror. Considerable loose skin inevitably remains after massive weight loss and often there is also a significant amount of residual fat, both of which can detract from the 'new you'. For these men and women, Dr. Antoniadisl is pleased to offer body-contouring procedures including the Lower Body Lift and other Body-Contouring Procedures at Genesis Hospital in Thessaloniki

Some weight loss patients only need to target one specific area of the body in order to achieve their body-contouring goals. Others may need to deal with a number of problem areas, with the treatment spread over several operations. A significant proportion of patients have all of the main contouring procedures in a number of operations spread out over 12-18 months. Whilst this requires a huge commitment from the patient, the results are truly life-changing.

The best results of body lifting/body contouring by far are achieved in patients who have reached or nearly reached their 'ideal weight' = Body Mass Index (BMI) of 20 - 30. But very dramatic improvements can be made in patients whose BMI is higher than 30.

Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in metres squared.
Normal: 20 - 25
Overweight: 25 - 30
Obese 30 - 35
Morbidly obese: >35

The term 'morbidly obese' means that people in this group have a significant chance of suffering medical complications from their excess weight, such as diabetes, osteoarthritis and high blood pressure with increased risk of stroke.
The more fat that can be lost through the weight loss program the better the results of the body contouring surgery. However, not infrequently, patients still have large amounts of subcutaneous fat following bariatric surgery. Performing extensive liposuction in addition to the excisional surgery increases the duration of the procedure, increasing the risks of complications such as clotting in the legs (DVT) or infection in the operative site or in the lungs. For this reason Dr. Antoniadis generally likes to perform an initial liposuction procedure 3 months prior to the bodylifting procedures.
