Body Lift

Compare 11 clinics

Body contouring surgery or body lift surgery refers to any type of procedure in which the shape of different areas of the body is altered according to the patient’s specifications or wishes. Body contouring surgery after weight loss refers to a set of procedures aimed at eliminating or reducing excess skin, along with fatty tissue. Body contouring surgery after weight loss is a very popular choice for patients who have already underwent bariatric surgery.

Body lift surgery or body contouring surgery can include one or more of the following procedures:

● Facelift
● Breast Lift
● Abdominoplasty
● Arm lift
● Lower body lift
● Medial thigh lift

Although body contouring surgery or body lift surgery is a popular choice for formerly-obese patients, a number of factors can influence tissue elasticity and ultimately lead to sagging skin and tissue: pregnancy, sun damage and the natural aging process.

Body Lift Candidates

Body lift surgery or body contouring surgery is recommended for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery or simply lost a substantial amount of weight. Any individual with excess sagging skin and tissue around different parts of the body can benefit from body contouring surgery or body lift surgery. The procedure can also help individuals with cellulite.

Am I Suitable for Body Lift?

Body lift surgery or body contouring is not recommended for patients suffering from heart disease, lung disease or diabetes. Heavy smokers should either stop smoking or avoid this procedure altogether. Patients suffering from an active infection are not good candidates for this procedure.

Preparing for Body Lift

Patients need to avoid smoking at least a month before the body lift surgery. Blood thinners, herbal teas, anti inflammatory medicine need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before body lift surgery. Patients need to have a stable weight before undergoing body lift surgery.

How is Body Lift Performed?

Body contouring surgery is usually performed in one session, under general anaesthesia.

Body contouring surgery can be broken down into several, individual components:

● Brachioplasty or arm lift surgery
● Mastopexy or breast lift surgery
● Abdominoplasty
● Lower body lift

The average body lift surgery lasts anywhere between 1 and 7 hours, depending on the procedures performed. Once the procedure is over, patients will be required to spend between 1 and 3 days in hospital, under close medical supervision.
