Body Lift Surgery

A body lift can improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports the skin and fat.

Excess sagging fat and skin, commonly known as cellulite, are removed and the procedure can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface. Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight, and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
