Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight, and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can cause abdominal, hip and thigh sagging. Body lifting is a combined body contouring procedure that improves the appearance of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and breasts by removing excess skin, sagging tissues and then repositioning or moving the remaining tissue to a more natural position.
There are two main types of body lifts - lower body lift or belt lipectomy and upper body lift. When upper and lower body lifts are performed on the same patient, it is called total body lift. In general, body lifting aims to improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. It is typically done after major weight loss, including those that occur after bariatric surgery.
Body lift surgery or body contouring surgery is usually recommended for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery or lost a significant 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, especially if they cannot get rid of cellulite with the alternative treatments such as regular exercises, firming body lift kits or body creams such as Clarins body lift cellulite control.
