What is Body Lift Surgery?

A Body lift is a surgical procedure indicated in patients who have lost massive amounts of weight and have loose, redundant, hanging skin. It is generally the procedure of choice for patients who have undergone weight loss surgery. The procedure enhances the underlying tissue's shape and tone, which supports skin and fat.

Body Lift surgery thus helps improve a bumpy, uneven skin surface by removing extra sagging skin and fat.

The procedure is generally divided into a Lower and Upper Body Lift.

Lower Body Lift

A Lower Body Lift or belt lipectomy is a very powerful procedure that takes care of the entire "belt" area and addresses laxity of the skin of the belly, waist, and flanks including outer thighs, lower back, and buttocks.

This is a 360-degree surgery and a much more comprehensive procedure than a tummy tuck. A Lower Body lift takes care of the following areas:

  • Abdomen, extending onto the flanks and lower back areas
  • Buttocks
  • Lateral Thighs

Upper Body Lift

A combined back lift, to remove fat rolls along the back, breast lift (or gynecomastia), and/ or upper arm lift are some of the procedures that make up an upper body lift.

A tighter, smoother body contour and an improved profile are the results of an upper body lift.

Am I a good Candidate for Body Lift Surgery?

People who have reached a stable weight and have completed at least 18 months or more post their weight loss surgeries, with loose hanging skin on abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms breasts, are ideal candidates for Body Lift surgery.

Anyone who has lost massive weight, irrespective of having undergone a bariatric surgery or not, and has reached his/ her target weight and does not intend to lose any more weight, is also a candidate for Body Lift surgery.

Initial Recovery Time2-3 Weeks

How is Body Lift done?

Body lift surgery is an extensive procedure and calls for long incisions. The amount and location of the excess skin that needs to be removed, as well as surgical judgment, determine the length and style of the incision.

Incisions are strategically positioned so that most clothing and swimwear can conceal them.

The steps involved in Body Lift surgery are:

Step 1:

In the initial stage, medications are given to ensure your comfort throughout the surgical process. The options include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia, The choice between these two options is typically determined in consultation with the doctor, taking into consideration factors such as the type and complexity of the surgery, the patient's medical history, and individual preferences.

Step 2:

A prevalent method for a complete lower body lift involves utilizing incisions resembling a bikini pattern to enhance the tightness of the abdomen, groin, waist, thigh, and buttock in a single procedure and to minimize the visibility of scars and contribute to a more aesthetically pleasing outcome. An incision encircling the body removes excess skin and fat, while also repositioning and tightening tissues.

Step 3:

To establish and uphold the newly shaped contours, deep sutures are applied within the underlying tissues. Closure of the skin incisions may involve the use of sutures, skin adhesives, tapes, or clips. These deep sutures provide internal support, reinforcing the repositioned and tightened muscles and connective tissues. This step is instrumental in creating a more enduring foundation for the reshaped lower body.

What Results Can I Expect from Body Lift Surgery?

A Body Lift Surgery gives excellent results and helps remove the excess hanging skin. It results in improved body contours and is usually the last step after massive weight loss to achieve a shapely body.

It greatly boosts the patient's self-esteem and confidence levels.

What is the Recovery After Body Lift Surgery Like?

Following the surgery, dressings or bandages are placed over the incisions to aid in your body lift surgery recuperation. Drains, which are tiny thin tubes, are temporarily put under the skin to spill away any extra blood that may collect. The drains are removed 3-5 days after the surgery.

You would need assistance in your day-to-day activities for the first 2-3 days. You would be in the hospital during this time and would get 24*7 nursing care.

You would be discharged from the hospital only after you can be on your own.

You should rest for a few days after discharge from the hospital but you would be up and about during this time.

You can easily fly back around 2 weeks after the surgery and need to avoid any strenuous activities for at least 3 months. Walking and other routine activities can be resumed after you return to your country.

Why is the Body Lift Cost in India so affordable?

Body Lift cost in India is notably lower than the Western countries, it can be attributed to factors such as the generally lower cost of living in India and a favorable exchange rate regime for international patients. Though the Body Lift cost in India is significantly lower when compared to Western countries, high-quality medical care enables patients to achieve substantial savings without compromising the desired surgical outcome.
