 A body lift is a strategic surgical procedure to contour the physique, improving your quality of life and your confidence in how you look. To our experienced, compassionate, board-certified plastic surgeons at Allure Plastic Surgery in New York City, body lifts are one of our favorite procedures to perform as we get to work with you to achieve the body sculpting results you deserve after all the work you've put in to lose the extra weight that was weighing you down both physically and emotionally.

What is a body lift?

Patients undergoing bariatric surgery can lose up to 140 pounds as a result of their procedure. Some are lucky in that the skin left behind tightens on its own, but many struggle with a loss of skin elasticity that can lead to drooping contours. 

While sagging skin is often looked at as a purely cosmetic issue, the truth is that excess skin can cause hygiene issues and can lead to rashes and other medical problems. A body lift at NYC's Allure Plastic Surgery effectively removes the problem at its source, trimming away redundant skin folds to clear a path for a shapely, attractive figure. Liposuction may also be incorporated into your body lift to help enhance your results.

A body lift may address:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Lower back
  • Buttocks
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs

What are the benefits of a body lift?

  • Removal of excess sagging skin
  • Improved hygiene
  • Increased energy
  • Reduction in irritation, chafing, and discomfort
  • Enhanced self-confidence
  • Increased wardrobe choices
  • Long-lasting results

Who is a good candidate for a body lift?

Good candidates for a body lift are those who:

  • Have stable weight
  • Don't smoke
  • Don't have significant health issues
  • Have not been able to improve appearance with non-surgical means
  • Have an understanding of what a body lift can and can't do
  • Are willing to follow the doctor's recommendations

What can I expect from my recovery?

Recovery after a body lift at NYC's Allure Plastic Surgery can be more involved than with other contouring procedures simply because the treatment addresses so much of the torso at once. Most patients will need at least six weeks of downtime to ensure optimal healing. As with any surgery, there will be swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the treatment sites, but our team will make sure you are comfortable with prescription pain medications. You will be asked to wear a compression garment, which helps to ease your swelling and preserve your new sculpted lower body shape.

Body Lift FAQS

Will there be scars?

Scarring after a body lift is rarely significant enough to outweigh the benefits of the procedure in terms of your health and appearance. Scars will fade gradually, and we can supply you with medical-grade scar creams to help reduce their appearance as much as possible. Our surgeons will do everything possible to place incisions in areas where they are well-hidden

Is a body lift painful?

Body lift surgery is performed under anesthesia, so you will not experience any pain during your treatment. After surgery, discomfort may last up to one or two weeks, depending on your body’s healing mechanisms. You will be prescribed painkillers that can help to reduce tenderness.

What are the risks with a body lift?

Our board-certified plastic surgeons practice a meticulously precise, conservative approach that minimizes the risk of complications and reduces your downtime. However, with any surgery, there are inherent risks. These include infection, anesthesia risks, bleeding, fluid buildup, poor wound healing, blood clots, numbness, and poor cosmetic results. We will go over these risks with you in more detail during your private consultation.
