After major weight loss, persistent fat and hanging skin can remain as a permanent reminder of your former weight. If you have lost 50 to 100 pounds or more and are now at a stable body weight, a body lift can remove sagging skin and stubborn fat from around your midsection. This incredible procedure can free you from this sagging tissue and recapture a smooth and slender figure after massive weight loss.
What can a Body Lift do?
Get Rid of Sagging Tissue
When a person loses a significant amount of weight, there remains a portion of stubborn fat and sagging, hanging skin. Without surgical help, this hanging tissue will remain forever and may cause frequent emotional and physical discomfort or distress. A body lift removes persistent fat and hanging skin from around the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs to create smoother and leaner body contours.
Restore a Natural Silhouette
Drooping, hanging skin can mask your incredible accomplishment of achieving massive weight loss. The resulting unnatural contours can create a negative perception not unlike that caused by your previous excess body weight. Body lift surgery smooths and redefines the contours of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs after massive weight loss. This restores a more natural silhouette and reveals your true figure after major weight loss.
