A body lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is used to remove or tighten excess skin and sagging fatty tissue. A body lift can be performed on the lower body and upper body.
A lower body lift, also known as a lipectomy, restores contour to the lower midsection of the body, which includes the tummy, thighs, buttocks and back. An upper body lift concentrates on the breasts, chest and middle back. If both the lower and upper body lifts are performed, this treatment option is known as a total body lift. A body lift is sometimes performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck.
