Body Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is most often used by patients who have undergone bariatric surgery for weight loss and lost a drastic amount of weight in a short period of time. Men and women who lose a large amount of weight very quickly are most often left over with excess, sagging skin from when their body was larger. It can be extremely frustrating for patients who have achieved such a major weight loss to then not be able to enjoy the achievement and show it off as fully as they would like to because of the excess, sagging skin. The excess, sagging skin may also make it difficult to wear clothing comfortably. The Body Lift procedure addresses the trunk portion of the body to remove the excess skin and create a smoother, more toned body appearance. In some cases, a patient may opt to combine other body contouring procedures with the Body Lift such as Liposuction (to remove left over stubborn fat) or an Arm Lift or Thigh Lift.
