What is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a surgical procedure that removes unwanted loose skin from the mid-section of the body. The extra skin is removed from the hips, buttocks, outer thighs, and abdomen. The procedure involves making an incision around the circumference of the entire lower body. Then, underlying fat and excess skin are removed, the stomach muscles are pulled taut, and the incision is stitched together in a snug contour of the body.

Thanks to surgical innovation, you don’t have to worry about unsightly or excessive scarring. Surgeons can use extremely tight suturing that begins deeper in the tissue, and it’s all done in layers to minimize scarring, rather than just on the surface.

Body lifts are especially beneficial to individuals who’ve undergone bariatric surgery which can leave them with pounds of extra skin. Loose skin can be heavy and uncomfortable. It can cause a strain on the body to nearly the same extent as excess weight can. However, removing it in a safe and effective way with a body lift eliminates the problem of carrying heavy skin around while also helping to boost confidence, which is part of losing weight after all.
