Body LiftAfter successfully shedding a massive amount of weight, it often comes as a surprise to people that they have excess sagging skin. For many people, the drastic change in body shape is too much for the skin’s elasticity to recover from, which is why a body lift is sometimes necessary. Though the skin’s elasticity is meant to help it adjust to changes in body shape, there are limitations.

A body lift is meant to correct sagging of skin on areas of the body like the abdomen, buttocks, inner thighs, and groin. The general procedure of a body lift is anesthesia, incisions, closing incisions and then recovery. The amount and location of the incisions will depend on the specific body issues of each patient. Discussing your goals with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michelle Place will help you finalize your plans.
