What No One Tells You About a Body Lift

Body lift surgery is sometimes thought to be comparable to a “facelift for the center body” as it takes into account the lower torso and upper legs and will allow for improvements in the stomach, the hips, the buttocks, the outer thighs and the back region. A body lift is a contouring type of surgery that centers on the abdomen, as well as the thighs and buttocks region.

Body lift surgery is especially beneficial for women who have undergone stomach stapling (or bariatric surgery) or for women who have been left with an excess of loose and sagging skin due to weight loss or pregnancy. Liposuction is a better option if your skin is tight but there is plenty of fatty tissue. Speak to a plastic surgeon about your options but if loose skin in the lower region of your body is the problem then body lift surgery is probably your best bet.

Body lift surgery is an extensive type of surgery that will require a lengthy recuperation period. Be aware that scars are an inevitable part of having a body lift so if the thought of scars bothers you more than loose skin then weigh the pros and cons of your decision very carefully.

Depending on your age and state of health at the time of the surgery, some patients are restricted to not lift more than five pounds at a time and to not exercise at all. Walking is a very gentle form of exercise that is encouraged but it is strongly recommended that you refrain from other forms of exercise until an adequate level of healing has been reached. For most patients this means anywhere from six to eight weeks. The average person will need four to six weeks of a recovery period before they can resume their regular day-to-day activities. It is important that no amount of pressure be exerted on the surgery sites. Most individuals can return to their jobs after being off from two to four weeks, assuming there are no major complications from the surgery.

An estimated 75 percent of the swelling from surgery will begin to show serious improvement by the time the six week mark is reached and 90 percent of the swelling should be gone by the time three months have passed. The final result of the body lift will be able to be seen once the scars have fully matured which will be in approximately six months time. Be aware that some people who undergo body lift surgery are left with more scars than others and some people will note that their scars fade faster than other people's. Not even the plastic surgeon can predict how much scarring will occur and how long, or how well, the scars will heal.

A body lift is an extremely expensive form of plastic surgery with the average cost being in the range of $13,000 to $14,500. It is one of the most expensive of all cosmetic procedures. Check with your insurance company to see if they cover a body lift before you schedule the surgery.
