Put the Finishing Touches on Your Physique With a Body Lift in Austin

Losing a significant amount of weight to get yourself in better shape and improve your health is a huge accomplishment that should be celebrated. However, one of the few downsides to weight loss is that it often leaves you with excess skin in certain areas of your body, which tends to become loose and saggy. This can prevent you from attaining the slim, toned physique that you crave. At Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, our body lift procedures can help you address this common issue to complete your dream figure.

What Is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a series of cosmetic surgical procedures performed to lift and firm multiple areas of the body, tightening up loose skin and eliminating stubborn fat deposits to create a more youthful, defined physique. Most commonly, a body lift will be performed on individuals who have recently lost a large amount of weight, either through bariatric surgery or a weight loss program.

At Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, our expert cosmetic surgeons offer two main types of body lift procedures:

Upper Body Lift

An upper body lift is one or more procedures that sculpt the contours of the areas above the midsection. This series of procedures may include an arm lift, breast lift, and back lift. This treatment is typically used to eliminate excess skin and tissue around the back, chest, breasts, arms, and armpits after a patient has experienced significant weight loss. An upper body lift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia.

Lower Body Lift

A lower body lift can address various areas from the midsection down. Typically performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia, the lower body lift may include a tummy tuck, thigh lift, buttocks lift, or belt lipectomy. The different techniques that may be involved in your lower body lift can eliminate redundant, sagging skin and make it much easier to feel comfortable in different types of clothing. The removal of excess tissue can sculpt the body and also improve overall hygiene in the area.

Because each body lift procedure is customized based on the patient’s unique goals, the details of the recovery period can vary.

You’ll also need to wait at least four to six weeks to participate in strenuous physical activity.

The length of your body lift will depend on the specifics of your treatment plan. On average, though, an upper body lift takes around two to four hours, while a lower body lift takes around four to six hours.
