What is a Body Lift?
Body lift surgery is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower portion of the body. A lower body lift surgical procedure tightens loose, sagging skin of the abdomen, outer thighs, buttocks, hips and waist. The upper body lift removes excess fat and skin from the upper back and arms.
What Are the Benefits of a Body Lift?
Removing sagging skin has both clinical and aesthetic benefits. The skin may cause chafing which can lead to infections and other problems. Removing the excess fat with a body lift helps you feel more confident about your appearance.
Am I a Candidate for a Body Lift?
You should be in good general health and have maintained your ideal weight for at least 12 months before having body lift surgery.
What Should I Expect from a Body Lift?
For a lower body lift, a full abdominoplasty with muscle tightening and elevation of the pubis is performed, as well as the removal of excess tissue around the trunk and back. Scars are planned to lie within the bikini or bathing suit lines, around the lower trunk. This procedure also tightens the upper half of the anterior and posterior thighs and elevates the buttocks, providing a lift. This 3-hour procedure may be performed on an outpatient basis or with an overnight stay. Pain pumps may be placed at the time of surgery to minimize post-operative pain. Patients typically require a four-week recuperative period after this surgery.
An upper body lift may be combined with a breast rejuvenation procedure such as a breast lift or breast reduction in Atlanta to tighten the upper torso. Scars are typically hidden under the breasts and along the bra line.
