What is a Body Lift?
Obesity followed by rapid and sustained weight loss can lead to sagging skin on the stomach, thighs, chest, and other areas of the body. As you burn fat, your body loses volume, but your skin doesn’t always keep up. It can remain stretched in some cases, giving you a “baggy” appearance that makes you feel self-conscious.
A body lift is a collection of cosmetic surgical procedures designed for people who have lost a large percentage of their body weight – typically 30 percent or more. Body lifts work by removing excess skin and tightening any that remains to give you a firmer, more youthful appearance.
Nothing is worse than putting in the hard work to lose weight, only to wind up feeling unhappy with the way you appear. A body lift is a tool you can use to capitalize on your efforts, allowing you to enjoy the fruits of your efforts and regain your confidence.
Dr. Tenley Lawton will work with you from the start to create a customized treatment plan uniquely reflective of your needs. Your body lift could target the groin, hips, midsection, arms, breasts, buttocks, and any other area showing signs of excess, sagging skin. We take a holistic approach, targeting multiple regions to give you the appearance you want.
Average Body Lift Costs
The average body lift typically costs around $8,073, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. However, that figure is only part of the total price most patients pay. It doesn’t include things like operating room expenses or the cost of anesthetics.
