The effects of gravity over time or significant weight loss can result in a body that sags, droops, or has an overabundance of skin. A body lift is a surgical procedure intended to remove excess skin and unwanted tissue from the hip, thigh, and buttock areas, lifting and tightening the remaining skin and tissue. This procedure is especially effective for patients who have already undergone bariatric surgery.
A body lift can be performed in combination with abdominoplasty, commonly called a tummy tuck, or liposuction for a more complete reshaping of the body. The benefits of a body lift include more confidence in your appearance and better overall health.
