Body Lifts

A body lift targets the tissue that supports fat and skin, resulting in an improved shape and tone of the area where the surgical procedure is performed. Cellulite (irregular, dimpled skin surface) appears smoother when reshaped by removing excess sagging fat and skin

Several factors can contribute to poor skin elasticity such as aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight, and genetic factors , which can result in sagging of certain areas (abdomen, buttocks, thighs) .

Body lifts refer to the surgical procedure performed in a particular area.

  • The abdomen area can extend around to your sides and into your lower back.
  • Low, flat, or unevenly-shaped buttocks can be improved by a lift procedure.
  • The groin area that may sag into your inner thigh can be reshaped.
  • A thigh lift (link to thigh lift) can be done for your inner, outer, or posterior thigh, or to affect the circumference of your thigh.

NameIntroduction
Arm LiftAn arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that can be considered if the underside of your upper arm sags or appears loose and full, due to excess fat and skin. 
Buttock AugmentationThe buttocks can be flat due to genetics, or can flatten out due to significant weight loss.
Neck LiftWhen the neck area doesn’t match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution.
Thigh LiftThe goal of thigh lift surgery is to smooth and reshape the skin and, in some cases fat, and evenly proportion contours of the thighs and lower body.
Tummy TuckA tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a reshaping and contouring of the abdomen.
