A Body Lift Removes Excess Skin to Enhance Weight Loss Results

Body lifts are personalized treatments that address excess skin on multiple areas of the body. Many patients seek a body lift after significant weight loss to further enhance their new look. Dr. Burns has extensive training and experience in body lift procedures, and he will ensure that you achieve the results you desire. 

Body Lift Candidates

Weight loss is a monumental achievement that is sometimes marred by excess skin. If you have lost a significant amount of weight and now have surplus skin hanging from any of the following areas, you may be a candidate for a body lift:

  • Upper arms
  • Breasts
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

As our weight fluctuates—and as we age—our skin loses its elasticity. So, although massive weight loss is great for your health, your skin may have lost its ability to bounce back. A body lift is beneficial for patients who have met or are very near their weight loss goals and can maintain a stable weight. Body lift candidates should be in good overall health.

Your Consultation

When you meet with Dr. Burns, he will review your medical history and your current health and weight. Together, you will discuss your treatment goals and desired results. After a thorough examination, Dr. Burns can recommend a specific combination of procedures that will address your areas of concern.

Dr. Burns can expertly remove excess skin to reveal the slim, trim, beautiful figure you have achieved through your weight loss efforts.

Your personalized body lift treatment plan may include a breast lift, tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, arm lift, butt lift, or thigh lift. Your unique combination of procedures can achieve the desired results for the slim figure for which you worked so hard.

What to Expect

A body lift encompasses a combination of procedures that will require general anesthesia and may take four to six hours or more, depending on the extent of the work needed. Once you are sedated, Dr. Burns will make incisions in the areas discussed during your consultation.

He will then trim away excess skin and re-drape it in a firm and tightened position. In some cases, he may also use liposuction to remove fatty tissues from problem areas. Once excess skin is removed, he will suture your incisions.

Benefits of a Body Lift

There are numerous benefits of undergoing a body lift:

  • By combining procedures, Dr. Burns can address multiple areas of concern at once.
  • The removal of excess skin will give you a smoother, more toned, and slimmer figure.
  • You will enjoy a more youthful appearance.
  • Physical activities are often more comfortable after excess skin has been removed, and personal care is easier.
  • You will have a larger range of clothing options available to you, and you will feel more comfortable showing off your newly contoured figure.
  • You will feel more confident in your appearance and enjoy major improvements in your self-esteem and self-image.
