A body lift targets the tissue that supports fat and skin, resulting in an improved shape and tone of the area where the surgical procedure is performed. Cellulite (irregular, dimpled skin surface) appears smoother when reshaped by removing excess sagging fat and skin
Several factors can contribute to poor skin elasticity such as aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight, and genetic factors , which can result in sagging of certain areas (abdomen, buttocks, thighs) .
Body lifts refer to the surgical procedure performed in a particular area.
- The abdomen area can extend around to your sides and into your lower back.
- Low, flat, or unevenly-shaped buttocks can be improved by a lift procedure.
- The groin area that may sag into your inner thigh can be reshaped.
- A thigh lift (link to thigh lift) can be done for your inner, outer, or posterior thigh, or to affect the circumference of your thigh.
