Tummy Tuck With Thigh Lift Bellevue & Kirkland
The tummy and thighs are two of the most problematic body areas for patients. These two areas are affected by aging, pregnancy, genetics, gravity, and several more factors. They also tend to be among the most susceptible due to where fat naturally pools on the body. If a patient has concerns about both of these areas, Dr. Jonov frequently recommends a tummy tuck with thigh lift. This allows him to treat both areas at once and patients to enjoy their full results sooner. The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery provides the best tummy tuck with thigh lift Bellevue and Kirkland offers.
Overview: Causes Of Loose Skin On The Abdomen And Thighs
As implied above, loose skin on the abdomen and thighs has various causes that will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Jonov will examine the causes of your loose skin during a consultation. This will inform the approach he takes when recommending a procedure and performing it.
Along with what can cause the changes, your age, skin quality, if you smoke, and how well your recovery goes, all impact what is possible and the results you get. Some of the main causes and factors that influence the development of loose skin on the abdomen and thighs include:
- Progressing age
- Pregnancy (especially multiple pregnancies)
- Quick or frequent significant changes in weight
- Sun damage/exposure
- Weight loss or gain at an older age
- Certain illnesses and medical conditions
- Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
- Bariatric surgery
While the above reasons are some of the most common or well known causes of loose, sagging skin, countless other factors could contribute. It is not always possible to identify all the contributing reasons for the extra skin, but Dr. Jonov can usually determine the largest ones.
