A body lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure, or a combination of multiple cosmetic procedures, done to contour and shape the body. There are several variations, and it can be used to address various areas of the body, such as the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks. This procedure is most commonly performed on people who have undergone gastric bypass procedures and, thus, have lost massive amounts of weight. It is also useful after a person has lost a lot of weight after diet and exercise. Such people are often left with loose and sagging skin and pockets of stubborn fat. During a body lift, our surgeon can remove the excess skin and fat and reshape the remaining tissue.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Since a body lift is a surgical procedure, the candidate has to be in good overall health. They also have to be at a stable weight, for weight fluctuations can undo the results of the procedure. A patient who has undergone bariatric weight loss surgery will need to wait a certain amount of time after the surgery to give their body a chance to recover from both the surgery and the health problems associated with extreme obesity. Generally speaking, women who want to have children should wait until they have stopped having children before undergoing a body lift.
What Does a Body Lift Involve?
A body lift is a customized procedure. It will likely involve a combination of procedures, such as a thigh lift, an arm lift, a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a buttock lift. After your procedure, you can expect a recovery. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing during this time for optimal results. After you have fully recovered from the procedure, you can enjoy your new and improved figure. You can say goodbye to that loose, sagging skin and stubborn fat deposits and hello to better contours.
