A body lift often combines multiple procedures to lift and remove excess skin and improve tone, shape and contour. A body lift may address the abdominal area, the butt and/or the thighs. Body lift are most often appropriate after pregnancy or significant fluctuations in weight. Usually, liposuction is performed at the same time to remove excess fat and achieve better results than a body lift would produce alone. During your initial consultation, Dr. Alouf will discuss which areas to address during the body lift procedure, how liposuction can improve your results and what you need to do to prepare for surgery.
