Body lift surgery is a procedure to correct loose, sagging skin after aging and significant weight loss that will not improve or tighten with exercise. The abdomen, lower back, thighs and buttocks are regions which may cause flaps of hanging skin which can be removed and tightened through this procedure.
Body Lift Procedure
General anesthesia is used during body lift surgery. The excess skin is trimmed and fat pockets are removed with liposuction, and the remaining supporting tissues are lifted and tightened.
Most patients require at least one to two weeks of downtime after surgery. Strenuous movement should be avoided as much as possible following surgery except for assisted daily ambulation to help prevent blood clots. Patients may resume daily activities gradually in six to eight weeks. Swelling and bruising should subside within several months depending on the extend of surgery.
