Body Lift

How is a body lift performed?

A body lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess tissue, skin and fat, and repositions and tightens the remaining skin. This procedure is very common for patients who have recently lost a lot of weight, or women who have had extensive changes to their body due to pregnancy. A good candidate for a body lift is a patient who:

  • Desires a tighter, firmer body

  • Has sagging skin following weight loss or bariatric surgery

  • Has stretched out skin from pregnancy

  • Has frustration at working fleshy arms through shirt sleeves

  • Has discomfort and frustration from tucking excess skin into clothing

What can I expect after a body lift?

Most body lift patients feel discomfort. This can be counteracted with a prescribed oral pain reliever. You can expect to return to work after one week and return to your normal exercise routine after one month. It is important to attend all follow-up visits for proper recovery. Patients should be able to see final results within six weeks.
