What is a body lift?

The exact procedure will vary depending on the area being treated.

Am I a candidate for a body lift?

You may be a good candidate for a body lift if you have loose, saggy skin that affects your quality of life.

The procedure can treat many areas of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, upper back, and arms. Some things that may disqualify you from having a body lift include:

  • Active infections or open wounds
  • Allergies to anesthesia or other medications
  • Excessive bleeding disorder
  • Heart disease or other cardiovascular conditions

Body Lift Consultation and Preparation

Our Miami body lift patients will have a consultation with the surgeon to discuss their goals for the procedure. They will examine your skin and assess the amount of excess tissue. They will also talk to you about any medical conditions that could affect the surgery or your recovery.

Preparing for a body lift may include:

  • Avoiding sun exposure or using sunscreen to prevent tanning
  • Eating a healthy diet and staying hydrated
  • Avoiding nicotine products for three weeks before and after surgery
  • Getting a medical clearance from your primary care doctor

Body Lift Procedure

Body lifts usually involve making incisions in strategic locations so that excess skin can be removed and the remaining skin can be pulled tight. In some cases, liposuction may also be used to remove pockets of fat. Body lifts can be performed as standalone procedures or in combination with other cosmetic surgeries, such as breast lifts or tummy tucks.

Body Lift Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

The body lift results can be very dramatic and help patients achieve a more youthful and toned appearance. The results are usually long-lasting but may be affected by weight gain or pregnancy. Our Miami body lift patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight to ensure that the results of their body lifts are not diminished.

Recovery from a body lift may take several weeks. You will need to take it easy for the first few days and avoid strenuous activity. You will also need to wear compression garments to help with swelling and support your incisions as they heal. After about two weeks, you should be able to return to your normal activities.

Following your surgeon's instructions for aftercare is essential to ensure a successful recovery. This may include wearing compression garments, avoiding sun exposure, and taking care of your incisions. You should also avoid smoking, as it can impede healing.
