If you have lost an extensive amount of weight (generally over 100 lbs.) and are experiencing extremely saggy skin at the butt, thighs, stomach and hips then you may want to consider a body lift. This procedure is able to contour the body with the removal of large amounts of skin and fat. However, not every patient is the ideal candidate for a body lift and may benefit more from a tummy tuck. Patients considering a body lift need to have a consultation with Dr. Korman to discuss the entire process and review if this is the best surgery to reach their goal. If you would like to review the body lift with Dr. Korman, contact his Mountain View office today to schedule a consultation.
What is a Body Lift?
An integrated body contouring operation involving the abdomen, buttock, hip and thigh area, this procedure creates an entirely new contour to the waist hips, abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
The body lift is part of a general area in plastic surgery called body contouring. It is very important to evaluate if you are a candidate for the operation or whether a tummy tuck, liposuction, thigh lift, or other procedure is the right one for you. We have had much success with the body lift in contouring of the body, but it is vital to understand the operation and to determine if it is right for you. Some patients need only a tummy tuck; others require the extended tummy tuck. Those that have lost over 100lbs will often need the body lift.
Before & After Photos
The body lift operation is an integrated body contouring operation to remove large amounts of skin and fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and back. This is a procedure designed mainly for men or women who have lost large amounts of weight and are left with saggy and unsightly skin of the abdomen, buttock, thighs, and hips. Sometimes breasts and arms can be combined with the lower body lift.
