What Is Body Lift Surgery?
Body lift surgery refers to various body contouring procedures that remove loose skin or tighten and tone different parts of the body. A total body lift addresses the overall figure by targeting the torso to contour the overall figure and shape. However, a body lift may involve one or more other procedures.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is one of the most well-known body lift surgeries. This removes loose skin and improves the contour of the abdominal region, including the love handles.
A breast reduction may be included as part of a body lift to maintain a perky yet proportionate appearance while improving the overall contour of the breasts.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
The appearance of the upper arms can be affected as a result of a dramatic change in weight or the natural aging process. An arm lift removes excess skin, often referred to as “bat wings,” for a more toned appearance.
Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)
Thigh lift surgery reduces saddlebags and addresses sagging in the inner thighs that can occur due to aging or weight fluctuation. Liposuction is often combined with a thigh lift to sculpt the overall appearance further.
During a butt lift, Dr. Kovanda will remove excess skin and tighten the buttocks. This improves the drooping or sagging appearance that commonly occurs in the buttocks over time.
Who is a Candidate for Body Lift Surgery?
The typical body lift surgery candidate has loose skin and a sagging or drooping appearance in various body parts due to pregnancy, significant weight loss, or aging. A good candidate is generally healthy overall. Dr. Kovanda will review your health history to determine if a body lift is the right procedure for you during a consultation.
