Body Lift in Mexico
When we refer to a body lift, ultimately the goal is to address the issue of sagging skin. Since skin is part of the body that supports the tissues below it, such as muscles; excess skin causes muscle tone to be loose giving the appearance that everything has fallen out of place.
The sagging can affect all areas of the body including the abdomen, breasts, buttocks, arms, thighs, face and neck. If you have had large variations in weight after pregnancy or significant weight loss by either gastric bypass, diet or exercise, your skin won’t be able shrink back to its original state due to the loss of elasticity.
