Body Lift

Body lifts are performed in people who have excessive skin circumferentially, around their abdomen and buttocks. This can occur after substantial weight loss, weight gain, or from the effects of aging. Often, the skin is not only aesthetically an issue with patients; it also rubs against the body, causing skin irritation. Body lifts remove the excess skin and fat, leaving behind a smaller waist and a buttock & thigh lift.

General anesthesia is used for patient comfort. Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as personal preference and surgical judgment. A complete lower body lift treats the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs in one procedure. A circumferential incision around the body removes an apron of excess skin and fat and repositions and tightens tissues.


A combination of liposuction and surgical body lifts may be necessary to achieve an improved contour. Deep support sutures within underlying tissues help to form the newly shaped contours.


The results of a body lift are visible almost immediately. It may take as long as one to two years for the final results to fully develop.
