Body Lift Q & A

What is a body lift?

body liftA body lift removes extra sagging skin and fat around certain areas of the body. It shapes the body back to a more pleasing aesthetic form and improves any irregularities in the skin’s surface. 

A body lift can include the abdominal area, lower back, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, and arms. 

What are my body lift treatment options?

The team at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center works with you to best determine what areas of your body would benefit from a body lift. Normally, a body lift is divided into an upper, mid, or lower lift. Procedures may include:

  • Tummy tuck 
  • Arm lift
  • Thigh lift 
  • Brazilian butt lift 
  • Chest contouring, for women or men 
  • Fat transfer
  • Liposuction, or fat removal 

You may benefit from one or more of the procedures when planning your body lift. 

Am I a good candidate for a body lift? 

A body lift is helpful in giving you a trim, toned, and smooth appearance, but it’s important to be honest about your health and goals before moving forward.

You may be right for a body lift if:

  • You have recently lost weight, and are looking to reduce drooping skin 
  • You have already lost most of your desired fat
  • Your weight is stable and you don’t foresee it fluctuating 
  • You have good overall health and can undergo surgery
  • You are prepared for a long emotional journey, especially if receiving multiple surgeries 
  • You have approval from your specialist if you’ve had bariatric surgery 

Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center surgeons perform a thorough exam and review of your medical history before determining what treatment is right for you. 

What happens during a body lift?

A body lift occurs at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center’s excellent facility, which has accreditation from the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAAF). 

You are normally given general anesthesia for the procedure, and the team of experienced nurses makes sure you’re comfortable. Your surgeon makes an incision in the particular area receiving the body lift. 

For example, during an arm lift, the incision is from your elbow to armpit, and then excess tissue is removed or fat through liposuction. The skin is pulled tightly and then trimmed.  

During a body lift, any liposuctioned fat can be repurposed for another procedure. Your surgeon may suggest facial rejuvenation at the same time as your body lift, where they transfer fat to your face for a youthful look. 

Some scarring may occur around the incisions, but your surgeon works to keep the incision points as hidden as possible. After the procedure, they close the incisions, and you may receive bandages and compression garments.

Depending on the extensiveness of your body lift, you can normally expect to return to work and daily activities in 2-3weeks.
