What is a body lift?
Body lift (sometimes called body contouring or body sculpting) is a complex surgical procedure that removes excess skin in areas where patients have lost weight, eliminating overhang and creating a more pleasing silhouette. Often body lift is the best solution for people who have lost a great deal of weight and now have to deal with excess skin. The procedure adapts the skin to the body’s new proportions, returning it to its natural shape and firmness.
Arms, breasts, torso and legs
A body lift involves surgically lifting several areas of the body. The middle section of the body often experiences extreme sagging, especially in the belly and hips and sometimes also in the thighs and arms. Targeted procedures to correct these problems include abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), thigh lift and arm lift. Weight loss also frequently affects the shape of the breasts, so body lift can also include:
Overhanging skin can occur on the back and buttocks as well, in which case the surgeon can do a buttocks lift or bra line back lift. Body lift is also frequently performed along with liposuction of local fat deposits.
In other words, a body lift is a series of surgical procedures that can be partially combined. If more than two or three areas need attention, the surgeon will divide them up into separate procedures. In that case, you will most likely need to wait three to six months between procedures.
Get an experienced surgeon
Since body lift involves a set of procedures on various parts of the body, it requires an extremely experienced plastic surgeon and highly competent surgical team. That is your best chance for achieving the results you want – getting rid of excess skin, healing well afterwards, and enjoying results that look natural.

What to expect
Before the surgery
For two weeks before the treatment avoid aspirin and other blood thinners. Minimise alcohol consumption and smoking for a few days before the procedure. Ideally you should stop smoking completely.
During the surgery
Given the scope involved, body lift is performed under general anaesthesia. It is an extensive operation that involves removing a large amount of tissue from the body and losing a good deal of blood, resulting in bruising and swelling. The anaesthesiologist remains present during the entire procedure. You can take a sedative before the procedure begins, if you wish. This procedure requires a two to three-day stay at the clinic.
You may experience temporary swelling, lack of sensation or tightness in the operation sites. We recommend spending the first days after the operation lying down with your torso propped up. Cold packs to the sites of ttreatment is also important. More extensive body lifts often require a longer recovery period than other procedures.
Instalments that won’t stand in your way
Are you ready to have a body lift, but don’t feel you can afford it now? We allow payment in instalments, so you can schedule your appointment now and pay later. We also arrange partial financing on request. Get in touch and we’ll be glad to go over all options with you.
The risk of complications arising during or after the procedure is very low. Choosing the right surgeon with our help is the best thing you can do to get excellent results. Still, no surgeon in the world can guarantee no complications will ever occur. Taking out insurance on an operation is a logical step, and more and more patients today are choosing to insure their aesthetic operation. We will be glad to help you with that as well. Just say the word.

We will be happy to tell you the exact price for your operation. Since every procedure differs in scope and difficulty, however, the price can only be set after discussing all your requirements and assessing your indications.

Yes, most patients will stay at the clinic for three days.
That depends on the nature and scope of procedures performed. Light physical exertion will normally need to wait about three weeks. Most patients return to work after three weeks.
That depends on the nature and scope of procedures performed. Typically strenuous movement, exercise, strength training and even heavy cleaning will need to wait six to eight weeks.
The results are usually long-term. It is important to remember, however, that we cannot stop the ageing process entirely and physical changes may appear after some time. The same applies to fluctuations in weight. Following all the surgeon’s recommendations is the best way to make sure you heal well, get the results you want and have them last as long as possible.
This procedure has no age limit, so it will mainly depend on the client’s health and physical condition.
Body lift is a relatively major procedure and affects multiple areas of the body. This means the recovery period can be longer than with other procedures. Considering the scope involved, clients would be well advised to plan their body lift carefully. Sometimes surgeons recommend splitting the body lift into separate procedures several months apart. This makes things easier on the body, the operation takes less time and the recovery periods are shorter.
