Individuals who have achieved significant weight loss, whether through diet, exercise, pregnancy or bariatric surgery, are often left with loose, excess skin. The body lift is a plastic surgery procedure which improves the body shape by removing excess skin and sometimes fat from the torso and upper legs. It is ideal for individuals who have excess skin following weight loss or those who have loose, inelastic skin for other reasons.
Candidates for body lift surgery are generally healthy, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery. Most candidates are looking to improve excess skin in the abdomen, hips, thighs and/or buttocks. The surgery can be combined with other procedures like the arm lift, breast lift or facelift to target other areas of the body and to retain a proper body proportion.
