Skin Tightening Surgery
Loose or sagging skin is a visible sign of ageing that’s inevitable for most people as a result of the skin losing its elasticity. Here at UK Aesthetic, we have a number of treatments available to help target areas of concern on the body.
What Can Skin Tightening Surgery Help?
Our skin can start to lose its firmness as a natural part of the ageing process, making it appear droopy or loose. However, there are other causes of loose skin, for example sudden weight loss or pregnancy. An effective way to restore youthful looking skin is with cosmetic surgery, providing long-lasting results.
The Best Treatment Options For Tighter Skin
Tighter skin can be achieved through various methods, depending on the area of concern and the patient’s desired results. In some cases, the surgery may only be required for certain areas on the body, whereas for other patients, they may wish to combine procedures for full body contouring. Common skin tightening surgery options include:
Patients may choose a face lift if they find their face lacks definition and volume. During this procedure, the skin is moved and repositioned to appear tighter and lifted. Occasionally, excess fat may need to be removed with liposuction.
Skin tightening surgery is commonly performed on the neck and chin area when the facial muscles slacken and the skin appears to be sagging. Various types of neck lift procedures are available and may be combined with a face lift or other facial procedures. The surgery will get rid of the excess skin and fat around the neck to give a more defined, tighter appearance.
Body contouring can target multiple areas of the body that may benefit from skin tightening surgery, not just the face. If a patient feels like they require skin tightening surgery in more than one area, then body contouring may be the best option for them. All aspects of the procedure will be discussed in the initial consultation.
