Body Lift

Improving Shape and Tone

A body lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess sagging fat and skin are removed to treat conditions caused in part by poor tissue elasticity.

Who is a good candidate for body lift surgery?

In general, body lift candidates include:

  • Individuals with significant soft tissue looseness in one or multiple body areas
  • Healthy individuals without medical conditions that impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what body lift surgery can accomplish
  • Nonsmokers
  • Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and fitness
