What is a Body Lift?
A body lift is a surgical procedure that can help patients eliminate unwanted fat, skin, and tissue from select areas around the body. Often, when people lose an excess amount of fat or go through a shift in weight due to pregnancy, they are left with loose, sagging skin that hangs off the body. For many men and women, it can make them feel as though their newfound weight loss goes unnoticed and affect their self-esteem or confidence. A body lift can help to trim away this unsightly skin and tighten the abdominal muscles to leave you with a tighter, smoother, more attractive body contour.
This procedure is similar to a tummy tuck but is more comprehensive and provides a more defined figure. Dr. Scott Farber will create an incision around the circumference of the hip region. . The incision allows him to trim away any excess fat, and begin sculpting your body. The overhanging skin will be trimmed away, and the abdominal muscles tightened to help maintain your new silhouette. During this procedure, Dr. Scott Farber will restructure your abdominal skin and pull it tight, like an internal corset, to create a more toned appearance before closing the incisions. This gives a lift to the lower boddy as well improving the appearance of the knees, thighs and buttocks.
What is a Lower Body Lift?
The term “body lift” is used vaguely and can mean removing excess skin and fat from various sections of the body, including breast, arms, tummy, and back. You may hear terms like lower body lift or upper body lift – these are used to more accurately describe which areas of the body will be targeted during surgery.
A lower body lift specifically targets the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips, and thighs. If you hear the term upper body lift, the surgery will target areas like arms, back, breasts, etc.
Is a Body Lift Right For Me?
Have you undergone a significant weight fluctuation, either from a diet, exercise, bariatric surgery, or following a pregnancy? If so, a body lift may be right for you. When your body loses a substantial amount of weight, it often leaves loose skin in its wake. If you are unhappy with the appearance of this sagging skin in your midsection and around your thighs, a body lift may be an ideal procedure for you.
Patients who have undergone the procedure typically benefit from:
- Slimmer, more toned appearance
- Eradication of excess skin and fat
- Flatter stomach and thinner thighs
- An enhanced quality of life
- Tightened abdominal muscles
- Better posture
- Enhanced hour glass figure
- Diminished “love handles”
- Lifted Buttocks
- Lower, more discrete incision compared to traditional tummy tuck
