What is a Body Lift?
The primary focus of a body lift is not to remove excess fat. This may be implemented as part of the procedure, but if excessive amounts or fat need to be removed, a liposuction may be implemented to achieve this objective. A body lift is primarily focused on tightening loose and sagging skin and tissue to correct the effects of poor elasticity. The end result is an improved shape of the body and a young and healthy appearance.
Who is a Body Lift Candidate?
Persons who have lost a large amount of weight and have loose excess skin and tissue are ideal candidates for a body lift. Patients who wish to treat the effects of poor skin elasticity that comes with aging may consider a body lift as well. Smokers and persons who have health conditions that may inhibit the healing process of the procedure may not qualify for a body lift.
