Transform your body to the new you you've always dreamed of.
Body Lift Surgery
Whether your intention is to tighten the skin following massive weight loss, or reduce sagging skin brought about by the aging process, dramatic appearance improvements can be initiated with a body lift. Beverly Hills’ Dr. Kim can perform the procedure on any number of body areas, and add or subtract potential components according to your request.
For example, our Los Angeles body lift patients can opt to undergo:
Upper body lift: By removing sagging skin on the upper body, excess fat (back fat rolls or fat that widens the waist) can be removed via liposuction; then, the skin is redraped to reflect a tighter texture. The result is smoother skin on the shoulders, back, and upper abdomen.
Lower body lift: By targeting sagging skin on the outer thighs, abdomen, and buttocks – and, performing a tummy tuck if necessary - the mid to lower body of a Beverly Hills body lift patient can be firmer, tighter, and significantly more toned following recovery.
Total body lift: Combining both upper and lower body lift is an ideal way for post-bariatric patients, or others who have undergone massive weight loss, to tighten the skin from shoulders to thighs. A total body lift can be the final step toward attaining the physique you strived for during weight loss.
Los Angeles Body Lift Patients: Options for Supplemental Procedures
If desired, body lifts may also include one or more minor lift procedures. For example, you may be interested in an:
- Upper arm lift (brachioplasty)
- Inner thigh lift (thighplasty)
As stated, many of our Beverly Hills body lift patients have recently lost weight and wish to reduce loose, hanging skin; while others, including those who choose to incorporate tummy tuck or liposuction, aim to target the visible signs of aging on the body. Examples of both scenarios can be viewed in the before and after body lift photos featured in our gallery.
