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 also removed.

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
