What is a Body Lift?
When you live with 100 pounds or more of extra weight on your body, your skin and fat deposit change. The skin loses elasticity, which is the ability to stay conformed to your body as you shed the pounds. You also develop pockets of stubborn fat that is difficult to lose due to its location in the skin. A body lift corrects the sagging skin and bulges of fat that may remain after losing a massive amount of weight.
What are the Benefits of a Body Lift?
- Removes flaps of loose skin
- Reduces the likelihood of developing infections in skin folds
- Eliminates the most stubborn type of fat
- Helps you feel more confident and satisfied with your weight loss
What Should I Expect from My Body Lift?
Body lifts are categorized as upper body lifts or lower body lifts. Most patients only need one or the other, but some patients do require and upper and lower body lift.
- Upper body lift addresses cosmetic concerns related to the upper arms, breasts and back.
- Lower body lift removes excess skin and fat from the buttocks, waist, outer thighs, abdomen and hips.
Upper and lower body lifts are typically performed during two separate surgical appointments. We wait until you are fully healed from the first procedure before scheduling the surgery for the second procedure. This does vary by patient, so we can best discuss the details of your treatment plan during the consultation.
How Long Do the Results Last?
A body lift does not stop the aging process nor prevent you from gaining new weight. We recommend that you wait at least one year after achieving your ideal weight before proceeding with a body lift. This allows time for your new lifestyle to become habit and may reduce the risk of regaining the weight.
