Full Body Lift

A full body lift can improve the shape of the body, removing excess and sagging skin and fat and improving skin surface. A body lift can include the abdominal area, buttocks, or thighs. It is frequently used to shape and contour the skin after significant weight loss, including after pregnancy.

Candidates for a Full Body Lift

If aging, sun damage, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations has caused your skin to sag with excess laxity, a full body lift can be used to tone your abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. Many new mothers looking to regain their pre-pregnancy body consider full body lifts. A full body lift is not a weight loss procedure. Patients should be in good general health, be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about surgery.

The Procedure

A full body lift is a series of procedures that remove droopy skin around the arms, legs, thighs, and lower abdomen. Depending on where you have excess skin, Dr. Nima will make an incision to remove sagging skin. In certain cases, liposuction is performed in conjunction with a full body lift. A body lift will eliminate rolls and improve dimpled or irregular skin, restore skin elasticity, and tighten excess skin.

The Recovery

Patients will experience swelling, bruising, and some discomfort, which should subside within several days. Most patients return to work within about a week after surgery. Dr. Nima may recommend a compression garment to manage swelling. You should avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for several weeks. Results from a full body lift are immediate and will continue to improve over several months as the body heals.
