Ageing process and childbearing also contribute to the loss of skin elasticity and the formation of redundant skin folds. Body lift surgery is able to address any area of the patient’s body where excess skin and fat tissue is accumulated.
Body lifting methods all have the same goal and they use similar techniques to achieve it: to eliminate unwanted sagging skin and fat deposits, an incision is made in the affected region, surplus skin is excised and underlying muscles are tightened. Before suturing the wounds, liposuction may be performed to reduce fatty tissue that does not respond to any exercise or diet. It is important, though, to note that body lift surgery is not a way to lose extra weight. It is the diminishing of the extra skin that remains after you have managed to lose a great deal of fat.
Body lift can concentrate on specific areas of redundant skin but the greatest advantage of this full-scale surgery is that it makes surgeons able to treat multiple areas in one single operation. This page explains you the basic differences in the process of upper, lower and total body lift procedures and gives a general overview of what to consider when making a decision about having body lift surgery. You can, of course, find detailed information about the procedures on relevant pages.

Types of body lifting
Upper body lift
This procedure deals with sagging skin in the upper portion of the body. The most common areas to lift are the breasts and the upper arms but the procedure is also successful in reducing the flabby skin folds of the neck and the middle back. Upper body lift surgery is made up of a breast lift and an arm lift. If you are dissatisfied with the size of your breasts, breast enlargement or breast reduction may also be performed. Men can undergo male breast reduction.

Lower body lift
Also known as belt lipectomy, it is the reshaping of the hips, buttocks and thighs area. Segments of excess skin and fat are removed from different regions, the buttocks are lifted and stomach muscles are tightened. Lower body lift surgery can truly resculpt the contours of the entire midsection of the body. The procedure includes tummy tuck, thigh lift and buttock lift.

Total body lift
It is an extremely complex surgery which combines lower body lift with upper body lift. Since the procedure is so demanding, it is not uncommon to perform it in stages. Although the total body lift requires extended recovery time, patients are overwhelmingly satisfied with their new figure.

When to undergo body lift surgery
If you want to get rid of unpleasant hanging or wrinkling skin after major weight loss, you are an ideal candidate for body lift surgery. You will be requested by your surgeon to maintain a stable weight for a period of at least three months before the operation. Women who plan to become pregnant in the future should postpone surgery; if you, on the other hand, do not consider further childbearing, it is best to wait about six months after you have finished breastfeeding. This gives your body a chance to normalise and relax.
