What is a Total Body Lift?
Significant weight fluctuations, age, genetics, and pregnancy can all affect your tissue and skin elasticity. This dramatic change in your appearance can leave you feeling self-conscious. Fortunately, a total body lift can help restore your shape and your confidence.
The skin often sags when it is stretched for a period of time and is then unable to return back to its original shape. A total body lift surgery will improve the overall shape and contour of the body by removing underlying tissue and excess skin. Body lift procedures typically include the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, but can include additional procedures depending on your individual needs.
Our highly skilled board-certified plastic surgeons work with you to create a personalized surgical plan to help achieve your aesthetic goals. Let us help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside!

What Can I Expect from Recovery?
After your body lift procedure, you will experience soreness and swelling at the surgery sites. During surgery, your surgeon may opt to place temporary surgical drains to avoid the buildup of fluid, which will be removed a few days after the procedure. Your surgeon will also give you a prescription for pain medication to help ease discomfort and you will be provided with at-home care instructions. You may wear compression garments to avoid fluid buildup and swelling.
Your surgeon will monitor your progress with postoperative appointments. Most patients require four to six weeks of recovery time before returning to daily activities.
