Body Lift – Plastic Surgery

A body lift is the surgical removal of excess skin, which cannot be reduced with diet or workout. Body lifts are usually performed to bring back the body to a more youthful appearance after loss of skin elasticity due to massive weight loss, multiple pregnancies or age-related body changes.

This procedure will help raise, firm, and tighten the skin of the thighs, buttocks, hips, waist, and abdomen to create a more pleasing body contour.

Am I a good candidate?

– For an abdominal lift: Take a pencil and place it in the fold where the skin hangs from the body. Leave the pencil; if it stays there without being held, then you are a good candidate for an abdominal lift.

How is it done?

Body Lift is technically a re-sculpting of the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks. Broken into its components, lower Body Lift includes an abdominoplasty, a thigh lift, and a buttock lift.Read More

A circle is incised around the belly button so that it stays attached to the body. The abdominal muscles are then tightened together again.
