BODY LIFT SURGERY
With growing popularity of weight loss surgery (gastric bypass) and with many people rapidly losing large amounts of weight, the demand for a body lift has increased. If you have lost a large amount of weight and have loose hanging skin in multiple areas of your body, a body lift can address these concerns. A body lift may also be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures such as a breast lift, arm lift, thigh or butt lift.
A body lift must be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in body reconstructive surgical procedures, as a body lift is an extremely complicated surgery. At Aesthetique, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery Center, LLC, Dr. Prasad Sureddi, Board Certified plastic surgeon specializes in body shaping and contouring procedures.
HOW IS A BODY LIFT PERFORMED?
Dr. Sureddi advises his patients who have lost a large amount or weight or had bariatric surgery and have excessive amounts of loose, sagging skin in the stomach, arms, breasts, hips, buttocks, and thighs that a full body lift can help. There are two types of body lift surgical procedures, the lower body lift surgery (belt lipectomy) and the upper body lift surgery. When both procedures are performed it is called a total body lift. In addition to excess skin removal, and liposuction, muscle tightening may also be necessary to improve core strength and for optimal body contouring. Non-surgical skin tightening and muscle building, such as with EmSculpt®, is also used to optimize the final results.
Dependent upon the extent of the body lift surgical procedure it may be performed in a hospital or a fully accredited outpatient surgical center. A total body lift procedure ranges from four to seven hours and is done under general anesthesia.* Dr. Sureddi will advise you of the best options to address your body lifting goals.
