Although many people in Los Angeles know what a tummy tuck is, most people don’t know what a Body Lift is. Body Lift is a relatively new plastic surgery procedure which is used for body contouring of people who have lost massive weight after Bariatric Surgery- Gastric Bypass or Lap Band.
Body Lift or Belt Lipectomy is similar to an abdominoplasty in that it also removes excess hanging skin folds of the abdomen. In addition, a Body Lift also removes excess hanging skin of the lower back and helps to lift the sagging buttocks. Beverly Hills Body Lift uses a circumferential torso incision to remove the hanging skin of the mid torso, including that of the abdomen, flanks, and the lower back, and thus lift up the lower body.
Body Lift is a complicated procedure that is best performed by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who specialize in body contouring after massive weight loss. This Body Contouring procedure needs to be performed in a Surgical Facility which is equipped for the intra-operative and post-operative necessities of a major abdominal surgery.
Recovery after a Body Lift takes at least 3 weeks, and during at least the first ten days the patient would need much help. Most patient can return to their routine activities after the third week and start exercising in 4-6 weeks.
