What is a Body Lift?

Losing a large amount of weight is an important personal achievement that is the best thing for your health and well-being. Unfortunately, though, after you lose a significant amount of weight, your skin doesn’t necessarily retract with the lost weight, and it can drape loosely from your body along with little bulges of extra fat. Schedule your consultation for a body lift now with plastic surgeon Dr. Jamie Schwartz, who is passionate about his work and also utterly committed to always keeping safety at the top of his mind as he helps you pursue your optimal results.

Benefits of a Body Lift

During your consultation, Dr. Schwartz will thoroughly evaluate your aesthetic and physical issues. A body lift is performed to eliminate the excess fat and skin around your hips, abdomen and buttocks that occur following the loss of a great deal of weight. A body lift is similar to an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), but it goes beyond the abdominal area to include the buttocks and hips. While you may lose some additional weight through your body lift, this procedure is not meant as a weight-loss tool, but rather as a post-weight loss technique ideally suited to sculpting and contouring your body. It is often combined with a brachioplasty to rid the upper arms of sagging skin and/or a thigh lift, to lift the sagging skin on the thighs after a great deal of weight has been lost.

What Is a Body Lift Procedure?

A body lift procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis, and it may be performed along with other body contouring procedures, such as a brachioplasty or a thigh lift. During the procedure, an incision is made from hip bone to hip bone around your entire body, (i.e., front, sides and back), to allow for the maximum extraction of excess skin and fat. The extra skin is removed with a superficial layer of fat, and the incision is closed to leave a taut skin surface once it has healed. This surgery generally requires about five to six hours to complete, as it also involves tightening the abdominal muscles and repositioning the buttocks.

How Long Is The Recovery After a Body Lift Procedure?

Following a body lift, you will wear a compression garment around the lifted area to help facilitate healing. You may experience some discomfort, so we advise that you plan to take one to two weeks off from work and other normal activities after this procedure. We will provide you with pain medications to take after you return home to alleviate any discomfort. You will need to avoid strenuous activities for at least a month. It takes almost three months for most patients to see the final results of this surgery. Please understand that body lift surgery cannot recreate a perfect contour, but the results will be much better than the previous hanging skin you experienced post-weight loss. Most of our patients are extremely pleased with their results, and they look forward to finally wearing fashionable and revealing clothes or going to the beach without hesitation.
