Body Lift Surgery

A body lift or lifting of the entire trunk (abdomen, flanks, and back) and sometimes of the buttocks and thighs, is sometimes needed, especially after large amounts of weight loss. Excessive skin and loose tissues are removed, and the contour is improved by lifting and tightening in a circumferential fashion.

This is usually an extensive procedure that requires general anesthesia, at least a short hospital stay, and a more involved recovery period than other standard body contouring procedures. For the right person, the rewards can be great, completing the process following weight loss and restoring improved contour.
