How To Prepare For A Back Lift
If you are interested in having a torsoplasty in Tulsa, finding an experienced and approachable plastic surgeon should be your first step. Some people may not realize that a back lift is still a major surgery, despite being a cosmetic procedure. Because of this, you will want to find someone that you can trust to do good work. Therefore, it is essential to seek out a qualified and confident surgeon with expertise in this specific type of procedure.
Once you identify a plastic surgeon that you would like to work with, the next step is to schedule a one-on-one meeting with them. A consultation is vital to getting on the same page as your surgeon so that they understand your goals for surgery as well as any past medical history. During this consultation, you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have regarding the preparation for the procedure, the surgery itself, and the recovery process.
What Is The Procedure For A Back Lift?
After the consultation, you will make an appointment to undergo your back lift surgery. At a hospital or surgery center, trained medical staff will administer anesthesia so that you will not feel any pain during the procedure. Dr. Kreitzberg will then make incisions, remove the excess skin, and reattaching the skin with improved contour and skin tightness.
While the time it takes to complete a torsoplasty will depend on the targeted area, most back lifts in Tulsa take between three and five hours. As an outpatient procedure, most people do not have to spend the night in the hospital and can go home the same day as the surgery. However, your surgeon will want to schedule follow-up visits to monitor the healing of the incisions. Most people can return to work and other daily responsibilities within ten to fourteen days after surgery. Some swelling may persist longer than that, but a back lift could be a permanent solution to excess back skin once healed.
