A body lift is similar to a facelift, except it involves the center of the body. Specifically, a body lift is the surgical contouring of arms, thighs, abdomen and breasts to remove excessive, hanging skin. The body lift procedure is designed for people who have lost large amounts of weight either through diet and exercise or gastric/intestinal bypass surgery. Significant weight loss often leaves people with saggy, excessive and unsightly skin that doesn't conform to their new, thinner figures. Other candidates for a body lift may include those who have excessive, sagging skin resulting from the normal aging process or pregnancy. As we age, our skin stops producing the proteins, elastin and collagen, that are needed for tight and tone skin.
Whether your sagging, loose or stretched skin is the result of significant weight loss, aging or pregnancy, a body lift can help give your body normal contours and tighter, smoother and younger looking skin. BeverlyhillsPhysicians.com can perform full body lifts or area-specific procedures in the following areas: arms, abdomen, thighs, breasts and buttocks. It is important to note that our plastic surgeons tailor each body lift to meet the health needs and aesthetic goals of our patients.

Full Body Lift
Depending upon your health, you may be an excellent candidate for a full body lift if you have excessive, sagging skin in multiple areas of your body or your skin has lost overall elasticity. Full body lifts provides dramatic aesthetic results because the full body lift tightens every area of the body where excessive, sagging skin is a problem.
Below are a few area-specific body lifts. (Please note: abdomen, breasts and buttocks can also be treated.)
Brachioplasty, or an arm lift, is designed to remove excessive and sagging skin in the upper arm that often results from weight loss and aging. An arm lift can give your arms the shapely contours you may not have seen in a long time or never had! Imagine being able to wear any sleeveless shirt you want!
Are you self-conscious about the way your thighs look? Is there excessive, loose skin that hangs or shakes when you walk? A thigh lift is a popular choice for those looking for sleeker, tighter legs. The goal of the thigh lift is to remove the "dimpled" cellulite look on your thighs. In addition, depending upon your health, liposuction can also be performed for better results. Imagine being able to wear shorts again!
