What is a body lift?

A body lift is an all-encompassing term that refers to the surgery that I do following massive weight loss.

Bariatric Surgery has revolutionized weight loss and is one of the fastest growing procedures in the world. It is not without complication. When considering cosmetic surgery, a patient who has undergone bariatric surgery must consider the following. Depending on the weight-loss procedure that was performed you may have:

  • Vitamin and trace element deficiencies
  • Electrolyte imbalances
  • An increased risk of anaesthetic complications
  • Other malabsorption problems
  • Wound healing problems

I require a 1 year period of ideal weight and lifestyle stability before considering you for cosmetic surgery post bariatric surgery.

Massive weight loss is indiscriminate on the normal “fatty anatomy”. The most desirable bodies do not look like sticks. We need curves in the right places for the ultimate sexy figure. I believe that purely resecting the skin excess after massive weight loss results in an unshapely, elderly look to the body. I frequently, therefore, recommend that Augmentation of the buttocks and breast be combined with the body lift procedures (buttock and thigh lifts, abdominoplasty and brachioplasty).

Scars are noticeable in body lift procedures, particularly brachioplasty, abdominoplasty and buttock/ thigh lifts.
