Body Lift at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts

A body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a comprehensive surgical procedure aimed at improving the contour and firmness of the abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs. At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, we specialize in body lift procedures to help patients achieve a smoother, more toned appearance following significant weight loss or pregnancy. Here’s everything you need to know about body lifts:

What Is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a transformative surgical procedure that targets excess skin and tissue in multiple areas of the body. It typically includes a combination of procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), buttock lift, and thigh lift to address sagging skin and achieve a more proportionate and youthful body contour. Body lifts are often sought by individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise.

Common Concerns Addressed by Body Lifts

Body lifts can address a variety of concerns, including:

  • Excess abdominal skin and tissue
  • Sagging buttocks and hips
  • Inner and outer thigh laxity
  • Unwanted fat deposits in the abdomen and flanks

The Body Lift Procedure

During a body lift, incisions are strategically placed to allow for the removal of excess skin and tissue while minimizing visible scarring. The specific techniques used will depend on the patient’s individual anatomy and goals. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and may require an overnight hospital stay for monitoring and post-operative care.

Recovery and Results

Recovery time and outcomes vary depending on the extent of the procedures performed and individual healing factors. Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort following a body lift, which can be managed with pain medication and proper post-operative care. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few weeks, with final results becoming apparent as swelling resolves and the body adjusts to its new contours.
