Vertical Incision As Part of a Body Lift?
I am having a lower body lift after losing 165 pounds through gastric bypass. The two doctors I am considering have strongly encouraged me to add a vertical incision to the abdominal portion of the body lift. How does this improve the appearance of the abdomen? Will the same pattern of skin below the belly button taken out? One doctor offered to add the vertical component to the abdomen as a second stage. What are the advantages and disadvantages of doing it that way?
