A body lift improves the appearance of the lower abdomen and trunk from front to back, most commonly following extensive weight loss. It is like an extended tummy tuck or abdominoplasty that continues around the sides of the body to remove the love handles and lift the buttocks. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and typically begins with the patient face down. After the initial posterior buttocks and lower back area surgery is completed, the patient is turned onto the back so that the “tummy tuck” can be performed which completes the “belt” lipectomy.
Treatment results will vary, talk to a practitioner to see if this treatment or procedure is right for you.
