What is a Body Lift?
A body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a surgical procedure that tightens loose, sagging skin and muscles to achieve a firm, shapely look. A body lift also erases cellulite and dimpled areas. The surgery is intended to accomplish full-body toning in people who have weak underlying tissues because of age, pregnancy, or genetic factors.
Who is a Body Lift Designed For?
You might consider this surgery if you’ve lost a large amount of weight and have excess skin, or if you have been pregnant and your body never returned to normal even after exercise and weight loss. The ideal candidates for this procedure have reached a BMI of less than 25 as well as a stable weight, and are generally in good health.
How Long will the Procedure Take?
A body lift involves inpatient surgery. The process takes approximately four hours to complete, after which the patient can expect to stay for one or two nights. Patients will be able to resume regular activities about two to three weeks after completion of the procedure.
