Body Lift procedures are surgical procedures and they require extensive incisions. Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as surgical judgment.
Advanced techniques usually allow incisions to be placed in strategic locations where they can be hidden by most types of clothing and swimsuits.
Plastic surgeons at Sharkawy Clinics offer body lifts to help those who have lost a large amount of weight reflect the new, more positive image they have of themselves.

Body lift surgery is one of the most common procedures used to improve the body's appearance after weight loss surgery. It’s also long-lasting, if you keep your weight stable.
The surgeon makes one cut along the abdomen and removes excess, sagging skin. The surgeon also lifts and tightens the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, and arms in the same procedure. Liposuction is often used to remove fat and improve body contour. Buttock augmentation may be done since buttocks often flatten with extreme weight loss.
Body lift surgery can dramatically change your appearance, and the results are permanent, except for a loss of natural firmness that comes with age.
Your surgeon should discuss the risks and benefits with you before your surgery. But for most people, the result is a smoother, more normal body shape.
