Body lifts

Have you lost a significant amount of weight, perhaps after bariatric surgery, and now have an excess of loose, sagging skin that doesn’t tighten on its own?

Such skin can detract from the aesthetic appearance of the weight loss and present functional challenges such as chronic skin conditions.  That can be pretty disappointing to a person who has worked hard to lose weight!

A combination of body lift procedures can help finish off your weight loss journey. The main elements include a lower body lift which is an extension of a tummy tuck incision completely around the lower torso. This allows re-suspension of the lateral and anterior thighs along with the traditional tummy tuck improvements. Given the substantial impact on the body of this procedure, it may be conducted in more than one operation. Many people find this procedure a key part of getting the cosmetic and lifestyle benefits they sought when losing large amounts of weight.

Other elements of body lifting include breast reductions and lifts. Some patients also choose to have arm and thigh lifts, which we only offer for patients as part of an overall body lifting approach.

In most cases, our surgeons will stage your total transformation to ensure optimal recovery from each procedure.
