A body lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat to improve the shape and tone of the body. A body lift may target the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, or a combination of body areas. The procedure can also help smooth and tighten skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. The most common reason for a body lift is to correct skin that no longer conforms to body contours due to loss of elasticity, often following pregnancy or dramatic weight loss.
Benefits of a body lift
As with any form of cosmetic surgery, a body lift can offer numerous benefits, including improved self-esteem and self-confidence. A body lift can be especially beneficial for those who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with sagging skin that has lost its elasticity.
