Coming to the end of a long weight loss journey is a cause for celebration, but it can be understandably difficult to feel happy about your weight loss when the result of your weight loss is a fair amount of sagging or loose skin. The experts at Beautique in Knoxville, TN believe the LaTorre Corset Lift is the ideal treatment for reducing excess skin resulting from weight loss.
What Is the LaTorre Corset Lift?
A corset lift is traditionally a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and fat from your body while simultaneously lifting and tightening your skin for a more svelte appearance. However, Beautique specializes in the multi-modality non-surgical version of a Corset Lift crafted by our very own in-house experts. The LaTorre version of this treatment uses minimally invasive cosmetic treatments to tighten, lift, and sculpt your body into your ideal shape.
How Does a LaTorre Corset Lift Work?
As a multi-modality treatment, this LaTorre body treatment combines the most reliable body contouring treatments into an all-in-one treatment plan that helps shape your body by minimizing lingering fat and tightening up loose skin. While this treatment may combine elements of fat reduction treatments based on your aesthetic goals, the real magic of this treatment can be found in the efficacy of PDO threads.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are a unique minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that can be used virtually anywhere on the body, including the face. PDO threads are made out of polydioxanone threads, a material similar to the sutures used in medical settings such as surgeries. PDO threads have the ability to interact with proteins and compounds in the sub-dermal layers of the body, which enables them to be metabolized and absorbed over time.
The general idea of PDO threads is to physically lift your skin into a higher position. Placing PDO threads is done through a special needle, which is inserted into targeted areas of your body so allow the PDO thread to hook into sub-dermal tissue; then, the PDO thread is pulled and connected to a higher portion of the skin, which helps tighten the appearance of your skin. PDO threads can be used for Corset Lifts in a number of ways, including:
Our experts will help you determine the best approach for your treatment so you get the coveted corset-like results you want. In addition to PDO threads, we may also recommend other body contouring or fat reduction treatments to slim your shape and improve the effectiveness of your treatment results.
Do PDO Threads Increase Collagen Production?
The interesting thing about PDO treatments is the fact that polydioxanone threads serve a double purpose. In addition to lifting and tightening your skin, PDO threads also help increase collagen production in the skin. This is because polydioxanone threads interact with sub-dermal tissues and will stimulate the production of collagen over the course of several weeks.
Collagen production is essential for tightening and lifting skin because collagen is the main protein in your skin that is responsible for supporting skin structure. As we age, the level of collagen in our skin begins to slow in production, which leads to your skin loosening and losing its elasticity, or the ability to snap back into place. This is particularly true for those who have undergone significant weight loss and require more collagen to help skin take a tighter shape.
What Are the Benefits of a LaTorre Corset Lift?
There are numerous benefits for a LaTorre lift, whether it’s for the face or the body. For example, this treatment is highly customizable to your exact needs. In fact, we take the time to go over all of your appearance goals and expectations to tailor your treatment to your exact needs so that you can love the way your body looks. Other benefits of this treatment include:
The fact that this is a non-surgical treatment is very important for patients who are not medically qualified for body contouring plastic surgery or who do not want to undergo extensive downtime after a cosmetic procedure. Non-surgical treatments are generally safer for patients, pose fewer risks of scarring as a result of treatment, and are easier to recover from.
You can also expect natural-looking results from your treatment. Our experts make every effort to ensure that your results appear natural, meaning they are appropriate for your body type, your age, and your health. This is particularly because of the PDO threads used in your treatment, which lift and tighten skin from the inside out.
Many patients who have recently lost a significant amount of weight are dismayed to learn that clothes don’t magically fit better after all that weight loss – and one of the main reasons is excess loose skin left behind by weight loss. When your skin is tightened from a Corset Lift, you will be able to fit in clothing of all sorts much easier.
More Body Confidence
Hand-in-hand with being happy with the way you look is a boost in your overall body confidence. The benefit of feeling beautiful is one that can’t be overstated. Many people are much more satisfied with their overall life outlook and wellbeing when they are confident about their appearance, particularly those who have worked so hard to lose weight.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Good candidates for this treatment include both patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and patients who are experiencing skin laxity on the body as a result of the natural aging process. Women who have given birth within the last three to six months may also be good candidates for this treatment. A consultation will determine if this is the right treatment plan for you.
