Body lift is an extension of the above procedures that are required to address massive weight loss. It deals with predominantly excess skin and loss of elastic tissue throughout the body.
In the lower trunk, it may comprise an abdominoplasty with an extension around the back to lift the buttocks and thighs. In the upper trunk, it usually comprises a breast lift and arm lift. I perform lower and upper trunk procedures separately to minimise complications and allow for optimal healing.
The signs of massive weight loss not only affect the body but often cause the face and neck to look drooped and aged. As such, patients frequently have a face and/or neck lift on a separate occasion.
