Achieving significant and sustainable weight loss is an accomplishment to be proud of, and many patients hope to see a toned, shapely physique after losing the weight. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and some individuals find themselves feeling disappointed in the way their bodies look, especially the loose, sagging skin that remains after weight loss. The truth is, loose skin will not resolve itself over time; Dr. Coscia understands this concern, which is why he offers body lift surgery to patients that have lost weight. Body lift surgery improves the look of the entire body following weight loss, and reveals a smooth, tight body appearance that looks great.

About Body Lift

In many cases, excess fat stretches the skin and damages its supportive tissues permanently. Even after losing weight, the skin does not recontour itself, and without the fat to fill in the space, the skin will begin to sag. A body lift is designed to remove excess saggy skin and fat, as well as improve the underlying supportive tissue. The procedure can also be an effective solution to chafing that you may experience.

Customized Solution

Often, a body lift is performed as a final step in a patient’s weight loss journey. Because every patient is different, Dr. Coscia will tailor a body lift solution to your exact needs.

Lower body lift: A lower body lift, or belt lipectomy, is intended to improve the lower body after weight loss by removing loose skin and fat around the abdominal area, or “belt line.” This involves an abdominoplasty as well as the removal of fat and sagging skin from the lower back.

Upper body lift: An upper body lift is ideal for patients with excess skin on the chest, upper back, and the area near the armpits. Skin and fat are removed to reveal a slimmer upper body contour free from unwanted fat.

Combining Procedures

It is common for patients that have lost a significant amount of weight to want to improve several areas of the body at once. In addition to a body lift, patients may opt for procedures such as breast augmentation, buttocks augmentation, or arm lift to complete their look.
