Dermolipectomy (Armlift, Thighlift)
Dermolipectomy is the most important procedure for treatment of
the deformities engendered by massive weight loss. It remains
the only treatment for excising redundant skin.
liposuction is useful for removing fatty deposits without
traditional surgical incisions, its application is limited by
the ability of the skin to contract and conform to the newly
sculpted figure. Thus liposuction may serve as an adjunct when
treating the sequelae of weight loss but not as a primary
procedure. In response to changing expectations, reconstructive
surgeons have developed increasingly ingenious and specific
dermolipectomy procedures to minimize or hide scars, lessen
morbidity, and enhance function.
Liposuction in combination with
dermolipectomy has expanded the applicability of traditional
procedures to a wider variety of patients.
