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(s) can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface, commonly known as cellulite.

A Total Body Lift is a procedure that is used to improve the shape and tone of the body by removing excess fat and skin. A total body lift is a combination of upper and lower body lifts.

An upper body lift improves the breasts, chest, and middle back areas. A lower body lift focuses on the areas of the buttocks, thighs, abdomen, and lower back. A brachioplasty (arm lift) may also be performed. Once the sagging skin and underlying fat are removed, the remaining skin tissue is stretched, giving the body a tighter, better toned, and more youthful appearance.

If you are looking to improve overall body shape and tone, a total body lift may be the right procedure for you.

Aging, sun damage, pregnancy and significant fluctuations in weight as well as genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity and can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and upper arms.

If you desire a firmer, more youthful-looking body contour, then a surgical body lift may help achieve your goals. It improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin.

Is it right for you? Before you decide to undergo body lift surgery, your weight must be relatively stable. Women considering future pregnancies should postpone an abdominal body lift since pregnancy may diminish the results.
