Body Lift

A circumferential body lift also known as a belt lipectomy, torsoplasty or panniculectomy removes excess skin from the torso and upper legs.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Body Lift?

Candidates for body lifts typically suffer from loose (inelastic) skin on many or most areas of the body as a result of age, childbearing or significant weight loss due to diet, exercise or bariatric surgery. Therefore, the procedure combines well with others such as breast lifts, arm lifts and liposuction to retain a proper body proportion. Body lifts help tighten and tone the abdomen, back, buttocks, hips and thighs.

What Should I Expect During A Body Lift Procedure?

During the procedure, skin is lifted from underlying tissue, muscles are tightened and stitched, fat is removed where necessary, and the skin is sutured closed. Surgical tubes help to drain any fluid for a few days, and patients need to wear compression garments for a few weeks to facilitate faster healing.

What Should I Expect During My Recovery?

After surgery, we recommend patients to walk as soon as they are able to, although we highly discourage strenuous activities for a month or longer. Results are visible immediately.
