Body Lift

What are the potential risks and complications of body lift surgery?
As with most body surgeries, it is impossible to predict what the exact results will be. Healing and recovery will vary from patient to patient, however, some common risks include hypertrophic scars, collection of fluid, blood clots, numbness in operated areas, asymmetry, swelling and irregularities in shape.
Greater complications that can occur in any surgical procedure include:
* Adverse reactions to anesthesia
* Hematoma or seroma (the build up of blood or fluid under the skin that may require removal)
* Infections or bleeding
* Allergic reactions
* Unsatisfactory results that ultimately may result in further surgeries
* Asymmetry (unevenness) of the skin
How long does it take to get back to normal activities?
Following the surgery, you will be dressed in compression garments and will be required to stay in hospital for up to a couple of days to monitor your healing progress. Following your discharge from hospital, you will be able to return to your normal activities after 3 weeks of rest.
Will there be scarring?
As a body lift procedure is a comprehensive surgery, there will be visible scarring on some areas of the body. Your surgeon will endeavour to limit scar length and visibility, however it is important for patients to understand that scarring may still be visible and to discuss these outcomes with your surgeon before undergoing a body lift procedure.
