A body lift is a procedure performed to address loose skin and stubborn fat in multiple areas of the body. Patients may pursue a body lift surgery to address the effects of aging, but one of the most common applications for the body lift procedure is to address loose skin that remains after a person experiences significant weight loss. In these situations, the body lift can help eliminate excess skin to reveal the full results of weight loss. Whatever your cosmetic concerns may be, we can help you achieve them with body lift techniques at The Peer Group.

How Much Does a Body Lift Cost?
The exact cost of treatment varies depending on your unique treatment goals and the specific approach we take to treatment. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the body lift technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment. You can learn more about the cost of your treatment and your payment options by visiting our financing page.
What is the Body Lift Procedure Like?
The body lift procedure will vary depending on your treatment goals and the treatment plan we develop during your consultation. These treatments begin with delivering anesthesia, ensuring you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. The surgery may be split into an upper body lift, a lower body lift, or combined into a full body lift procedure.
An upper body lift addresses the upper back, arms and breasts. A lower body lift addresses the legs, hips and abdomen. The incisions made during the procedure vary, depending on the locations being addressed, but we make every effort to minimize visible scarring. After incisions are made, we remove excess skin and fat before tightening the remaining skin. After these steps are complete, the incisions are sealed and the treatment is complete.
What is the Body Lift Recovery Like?
The recovery process for a body lift varies, depending on the extent of treatment performed, and can be quite extensive if multiple areas are addressed at once. Most patients experience swelling, bruising and discomfort for several weeks after their treatment. You will need to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest and heal following your surgery. We also recommend patients abstain from any exercise or heavy lifting for at least six weeks after treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from a Body Lift?
The results from your body lift surgery are visible soon after treatment, and last for many years to come. However, a body lift cannot prevent changes in the body that might occur in the future due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy or aging. We encourage patients to maintain healthy lifestyle habits in order to make their results last as long as possible.
