Body LiftWhat is a body lift?

A body lift is a surgical procedure that aims to remove excess skin and fatty tissue in multiple areas so you gain a firmer, smoother shape and profile. Body lift surgeries typically targets these areas:

  • Belly or abdomen area, including the sides and lower back

  • Buttocks

  • Thighs, including the inner and outer thighs

  • Groin

In addition to removing excess tissue, a body lift procedure can also help correct the appearance of dimpled skin due to cellulite.

Can a body lift be used in place of liposuction?

No, a body lift is not intended to remove large amounts of excess fat. However, a body lift may be used in conjunction with liposuction to help you achieve a firmer, smoother result following the liposuction surgery.

Am I a good candidate for body lift surgery?

The best candidates for body lift surgery are those who:

  • Have lax, loose skin, and tissue in several body areas

  • Do not have existing medical conditions that could interfere with recovery and healing

  • Do not smoke

  • Are committed to following through on post-surgical dietary and lifestyle changes that can help them enjoy maximum benefits of their procedure

  • Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about what the surgery can accomplish

How will I feel after surgery?

Your surgical procedure will be based specifically on your needs, and there will be multiple incision sites. Once your surgery is over, you will feel tired from the anesthesia and you will have soreness around the operational areas. You will receive specific instructions with regard to your physical activity and how to care for the incision sites during healing. You will also receive medication to reduce discomfort and decrease the risk of infection. Be sure to follow up with office visits as directed
