What is a Body Lift?
A body lift is a surgical procedure to combat sagging skin and the deflated appearance that can occur with any significant weight loss. This is often seen in patients who have undergone bariatric surgery or made significant changes in their diet and exercise habits. Once a patient is at a stable weight, a body lift can be considered if all other medical conditions are well controlled. A body lift can include a combination of multiple procedures, which Dr. DePerro can discuss with you at the time of your consultation. These procedures can include an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), thigh lift, arm lift, back/butt lift, and or breast lift. However, not everyone needs each of the above-mentioned procedures. Your consultation and planned surgery will be personalized to your specific body type and objectives
What are the Benefits of a Body Lift?
The benefits of a body lift are to improve the shape of your body and often times go beyond just the obvious physical benefits. A body lift might be what you need to help jump start your life and get you back to a healthy lifestyle. The results are noticeable almost immediately, and the scarring is kept minimal when possible. The results are usually long lasting and should produce ongoing results as long as you maintain a stable diet and exercise routine.
