Individuals who desire a well-toned body with smooth contours may want to consider a surgical body lift. A body lift is intended to improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and remove the excess skin and fat that is in part due to poor tissue elasticity. In addition, a body lift can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Body lift surgery is performed under anesthesia. The incisions made depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. A complete lower body lift treats the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs in one procedure.

Immediately following the procedure, sutures are used to close the incision. Although results of a body lift are visible almost immediately, it may take one to two years for desired results to be achieved.
