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.

How much does a body lift cost?

The average cost of lower body lift surgery is $8,157, according to 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The cost of body lift surgery can vary widely. The average fee referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.A surgeon's cost will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure(s) used and the geographic office location. Most health insurance does not cover body lift surgery or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.

Body lift costs may include:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Medical tests
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Surgeon's fee

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for a body lift, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
