BODY LIFT

Individuals who have undergone massive weight loss surgery are often left with undesirable problem areas, including loose, sagging skin in various areas of the body. The solution we can provide is body lift surgery. Offering sensitivity and compassion, our body contouring surgeon can help patients achieve their desired results. The body lift procedure is designed to remove excess skin and fat from specific areas of the body that are often seen in post-bariatric surgery patients.

Before The Procedure

During an appointment with our surgeon, you will discuss your problem areas and, should you qualify for body lift surgery, he or she will create a personalized treatment plan. Based on your particular case, you may require one or more surgical visits. Typically, the arms, breasts, abdomen, lower back, hips, and thighs have the most excess skin.

During The Procedure

The body lift is performed to remove excess skin and sometimes also fat from the torso and upper legs. It is a complicated procedure that can take three to seven hours under general anesthesia, but it offers an improvement in appearance for patients who have lost significant amounts of weight due to childbearing, diet, exercise or bariatric surgery, or who have loose, inelastic skin for other reasons. The procedure is often combined with others such as breast lifts, face lifts and arm lifts to regain a proper body proportion. During the procedure, skin is lifted from underlying tissue, muscles are tightened and stitched, and fat is removed where necessary, and the skin is sutured closed.

After The Procedure

Results are visible immediately
Surgical tubes may be needed for several days to drain any fluid, and patients may need to wear compression garments for a few weeks to facilitate faster healing
Our body lift patients are encouraged to walk as soon as they are able to after surgery, although strenuous activities must be limited for about a month
the overall recovery requires four to six weeks that are usually difficult.
