Body Lift Q & A
What is a Body Lift?
A body lift, sometimes referred to as body contouring, is performed to shape and tone an individual’s body through removing excess skin, fat and support tissue. It is typically performed after major weight loss that has left excess sagging skin or disproportioned stubborn pockets of fat.
What Body Areas are Targeted in a Body Lift?
A Body lift can be performed on the upper body, mid body or lower body. It is most often performed on the stomach, buttocks or thighs, but can also be performed on other body areas. Different types of body lifts include::
- Arm lift
- Breast lift
- Buttocks lift
- Thigh lift
- Abdomen lift (Tummy Tuck)
If patients wish to target excess skin and fat across a few of these different areas, a full body lift or total body lift will be performed.
What’s the Difference Between a Body Lift & Liposuction?
Skin elasticity plays a major role in determining if a patient is a better candidate for a body lift or liposuction. A body lift is performed when a patient has excess skin that has poor elasticity and when they may need some excess fat deposits removed; it is not performed solely to remove fat. Liposuction on the other hand, is an effective option for removing excess, unwanted fat when the skin has good elasticity so that it can naturally adapt to the new body shape created by the liposuction.
Is a body lift right for me?
A body lift is a great option to reshape your body if you have poor skin elasticity, as well as unwanted fat or soft tissue.
Many women and men choose to get a body lift if they recently underwent major weight loss, but still have excess sagging skin, soft, loose body tissue or stubborn fat deposits. This may make it frustrating to feel comfortable in clothes, despite the new weight loss. A body lift procedure can help you contour and tone your body so that you feel confident in your own skin and shape!
Deciding whether a Body lift is right for you is a deeply personal decision. At Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics, your physician will help you understand all your available options to reach your goals so that you can make the best decision for you.
