A body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, addresses excess skin or fatty tissue on the body that results from age or extreme weight loss. More extensive than a tummy tuck, the body lift is performed on the lower torso and upper legs, resculpting the abdomen, hips, back, buttocks and outer thighs. Body lift procedures are a type of body contouring that can yield dramatic results by slimming, toning, firming, and shaping the entire body.
While exercise and a healthy diet can help with weight management, they dont address loose, sagging skin and uneven contours.
Aging, sun damage, cellulite, genetics, pregnancy, and significant fluctuations in weight may contribute to poor tissue elasticity and can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. A body lift can provide a firmer, more youthful-looking body.
