Corset Trunkplasty, commonly known as corset surgery, is a new plastic surgery that contours the midsection to resemble a sleeker waistline. Corset trunkplasty works by removing fat and loose skin on the lower abdomen as well as the upper abdomin, which produces a thinner, more sculpted waistline.
What Corset Trunkplasty Does
The surgery makes three incisions to removing excess fat and loose skin around a person's front midsection which reshapes your mid section. Corset trunkplasty is different from other plastic surgeries because its a single-stage body contouring technique that addresses redundant skin of the entire anterolateral trunk following significant weight loss.
Patients will experience more aesthetically-pleasing bodies, easier hygiene maintenance and increased confidence.
Who is a Good Candidate for Corset Trunkplasty?
Patients who've recently undergone bariatric surgery or people who've lost excess weight and have loose skin around the midsection are good candidates. Patients who've undergone the various bariatric surgeries, gastric bypass or gastric sleeve, and have rolls or folds of skin is not uncommon. Corset trunkplasty combines abdominoplasty with upper abdomen contouring which can redefine a person's body.
Risks of Corset Trunkplasty
All major surgeries involve risks and corset trunkplasty is one of them. There are risks of anesthesia, hematoma, seroma, wound breakdown, death and more.
Costs of Corset Trunkplasty
Corset Trunkplasty is an elective procedure that insurance rarely covers. Typical costs range about $12,000 to $15,000. Some plastic surgeons have access to financing and payment options.
