Total Body Lift Procedure Pittsburgh
Dr. Dennis Hurwitz prepares to begin an 8-hour surgery on his patient, Roberta. Although, as with any surgery, there are risks involved in a total body lift, Dr. Hurwitz is confident that the benefits are far more prevalent.
Narrator: Dr. Dennis Hurwitz is about to perform a total body lift on
Roberta. This is a radical procedure, which will completely restore her
youthful body in a single eight-hour operation.
Dr. Hurwitz: Roberta understands that there are significant risks with this
operation. My experience has shown that whether I do this total body lift
in one stage or two, the risks are about the same.
Narrator: Dr. Hurwitz begins with the lower body.
Dr. Hurwitz: I don't cut with the electro cautery. I firmly believe that
that sharp cutting with a knife is important because this tissue is what
I'm going to use to close her up and I don't want it damaged by any
Narrator: Before he removes any skin, Dr. Hurwitz uses liposuction to
sculpt Roberta's lower body.
Dr. Hurwitz: It's so much thinner than it was, but not too thin. OK. We're
now going to take this skin out that we deem excess.
