Because a body lift is a highly customized procedure, the amount you pay depends heavily on your circumstances. The price will depend on the type of body lift you need, the amount of sagging skin you want to eliminate, and the surgeon’s qualifications. Other factors that may make a difference include your insurance coverage, any compression garments you may need after the procedure, and pre-surgical diagnostics and testing costs.
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.
Could I Benefit from a Body Lift?
Patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight can benefit substantially from a body lift. After surgery, you will notice some immediate improvements, such as less excess skin and a more toned physique. Full results usually take several months and only show up once all the swelling subsides. After everything is done, you will feel more like you’ve completed your weight loss journey. You will have fewer lines and wrinkles and less sagging. It’s a total makeover.
If you have more than an inch of pinchable skin, are generally in good health, and can maintain a stable weight, you might be a good candidate for a body lift. You may also wish to consider surgery if excess skin is interfering with exercise or you feel self-conscious about the way you look.
