Body lift plastic surgery enhances the tone and shape of underlying weak or loose tissues that provides support to skin and fat. Plastic surgeons can remove excess fat and skin for restoring a more youthful looking appearance in body parts that require a lift. The procedure is designed to help improve the skin’s cellulite condition and make the skin more regular and smoother.
Body lift cosmetic surgery can be performed on buttocks, abdomen, thighs, and groin. Poor tissue elasticity in the areas may occur because of sun damage, hereditary factors, aging, major weight fluctuations, and pregnancy. Your cosmetic surgeon may recommend a combination of liposuction and body lift in areas where skin elasticity is particularly weak.

Lower Body Lift
Lower body lift is highly common and involves buttocks, hips, and thighs. Dramatic weight loss can result in unsightly skin folds. While these may not appear to be aesthetically problematic, they may result in chafing and discomfort.
Lower body lift cosmetic surgeries are designed for removing excess skin, improving contours and lift the buttocks and thighs. The surgeon will place incisions across the lower abdomen, waist, and down the inner thigh. They will remove unwanted tissue and fat through these incisions and pull the skin tightly together. The surgeon may also trim the skin before suturing it.
Mid Body Lift
This is an aesthetic procedure that involves treating the abdominal area and addressing the areas involved in a lower body lift. The technique enables surgeons to create smooth and continuous contours from the abdomen to the thigh. Incisions are made similar to the ones in lower body lift.
Loose abdominal muscles will be accessed by the surgeon through the incisions made around the waist. They will then stitch the skin tightly together to build a flatter belly and a slimmer waistline. Excess skin and fat are removed after muscle repair. Your surgeon will close the incisions with sutures.
Full Body Lift
Your surgeon may recommend a full body lift if you suffer from significant skin laxity all over the body. This procedure will treat skin laxity in every area of the body which typically accumulates surplus fat and skin. This includes the buttocks, abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, and breasts. The procedure can contour these body parts to achieve a trimmer, youthful, and lifted appearance.
Full body lift plastic surgery ranks among the most comprehensive body procedures for restoring a more attractive and younger figure. This is especially true after a person has undergone large weight loss. Generally, full body lifts are performed in stages. Your surgeon will decide whether to perform the surgery in one go or in bits since the surgery takes anywhere from 3 to 4 hours. Many women choose to undergo breast lift along with full body lift as well.
