What is a Body Lift?
A body lift is a series of customized cosmetic surgery procedures that work together to address your individual body's areas of concern. It is a major surgical procedure, and as such it is important to choose a surgeon with the artistic skill to deliver an aesthetic result, and who also prioritizes safety, using evidence-based best practices both in the operating room and in postoperative care.

We've compiled detailed post-operative care instructions to best equip our cosmetic surgery patients throughout their recovery process. To ensure the best and safest recovery, your plan encompasses appropriate prescriptions and clear directions towards maintaining your comfort to get you back to normal life and activity as soon as possible. Individual patients respond uniquely, and the type of procedure may differ, but these basic guidelines will help you along your journey.
Your Body Lift Experience
Whether or not the body lift surgeries will need to be performed in a hospital setting or as an outpatient, as well as the necessary recovery time, will depend on which procedures are being performed. Many patients can expect two separate sessions to complete their procedures. Some patients will choose to stage their procedures, pairing an arm lift and an abdominoplasty together, and later undergo a thigh lift with a breast lift. During your initial consultation, we will listen to your specific goals, working with you to devise a personal treatment plan.
