The body lift is ideal for someone who has a significant amount of skin laxity not only of the abdominal area, but all the way around the trunk involving the hip areas, thighs, and buttock areas. This situation occurs for many people who have achieved major weight loss. However, the procedure is also appropriate for healthy weight individuals who are seeking improvement all the way around the lower body.
A body lift procedure will remove excess skin and fatty tissue all the way around the lower trunk. This typically involves aspects of an abdominoplasty but also removes additional skin and fatty tissue in the hip and upper buttock areas to help tighten the sides of the thighs and the buttocks. The abdominal muscles are tightened, and liposuction provides additional definition in contour. The body lift can make very dramatic overall improvements because it helps tighten several areas at once.
With a body lift, the abdomen, hips, lateral thighs and upper buttocks are all impacted.
