Body lifts are versatile procedures for patients seeking to recontour more than one targeted body area. They are commonly performed after extreme weight loss, when poor skin elasticity and overhanging folds can cause discomfort or concern.
This surgery will help to improve body shape and tone by removing excess fat and sagging skin, reducing cellulite, and tightening muscle. Typical areas of treatment include thighs, buttocks, tummy, waistline, and breasts. The overall effect is similar to having multiple procedures, including mastopexy, abdominoplasty, and flank liposuction.
360° or Lower Body Lift (Belt Lipectomy)
Combining a tummy tuck with a thigh and buttocks lift, this procedure dramatically changes the lower body shape while minimizing scarring. The surgeon makes an incision at the abdomen, and then extends it around to the back, allowing for fat removal and muscular contouring of the entire truncal area. The results are a more toned midsection, and a more elevated hips and buttocks
Upper Body Lift
This surgery tightens the skin and removes stubborn fat around the chest, arms, and back, using the same techniques as a brachioplasty, back lift, and breast lift, as well as liposuction. Incisions are made with an effort to conceal scarring
