Body Lift

A body lift is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the middle and lower abdomen, hips, outer thighs, back, buttocks, and to tighten muscles of the abdominal wall. Although the steps of the body lift procedure differ depending on the needs of the patient, Surgeons often perform surgery on the stomach first, removing excess skin from the belly button to the pubic area, and then tightening the abdominal wall muscle. This is the area that is most often loosened by excessive weight loss. Swelling, which is commonly seen after body lift surgery, is controlled by compression garments and the use of drains, sterile collection tubes used to evacuate excess fluid.
A body lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess sagging fat and skin are removed to treat conditions caused in part by poor tissue elasticity. In addition, the procedure can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface, commonly known as cellulite.
