The procedure will be individualized to your specific conditions and the regions to be treated. Body lifts are surgical procedures and they require incisions, in some cases, extensive incisions. A circumferential incision around the body removes an apron of excess skin and fat and repositions and tightens tissues. Other body contouring procedures may be performed separately or in the same surgical session as a body lift including liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), mastopexy (breast lift), or a breast reduction.
After surgery, one or more small drain tubes may be placed temporarily to drain excess fluid or blood. You may return to work and normal activities within a few weeks so long as you do not engage in any heavy lifting or vigorous exercise.
