The human body is three dimensional, and in many cases it’s not possible to achieve desired results with ‘two dimensional’ surgeries like abdominoplasty that only target a specific area on the front of the torso. When issues with loose skin, flabbiness or excess fat deposits extend all around the circumference of the body, on the front, back and sides, as well as the abdomen, thighs and buttocks, the only way to target and fix all of these is with a body lift procedure.
Lower Body Lift
A combination of thigh and buttock lift, abdominoplasty and tummy tuck. This variation removes excess skin and fat, but also actively tightens the stomach muscle walls. Our lower body lifts utilise a tissue network called the superficial fascia suspension system that runs through the abdomen. By manually improving suspension of this system, we can more effectively raise the actual musculature of your body rather than simply removing tissue like in less intense operations.
Central Body Lift
Also called a belt lipectomy, this procedure is great for removing circumferential excess tissue that runs across the all sides of the torso. This is best thought of as a tummy tuck that also fixes your sides and back.
These are just two of the more standard variations. Body lifts also encompass a number of operations done concurrently. For example, a combination thigh lift, tummy tuck and brachioplasty could be referred to as a body lift.
Body Lift includes:
It’s important to be aware of the fact that body lifts are a much more extensive procedure than smaller and more targeted operations, and anyone who tries to downplay its intensity probably isn’t being entirely honest with you.
At Australia Cosmetic Clinics, our surgeons will always be entirely clear and up-front with you. As such, we cannot promise that a body lift is your best option without an initial consultation session. What we can say, however, is that all of our past patients who opted for this procedure have reported overwhelmingly high levels of satisfaction and have been universally thrilled with the results.
As medical experts, we feel it’s important that you’re aware it’s an intense procedure. Recovery time varies, but is almost always at least 6 weeks. Conducted under general anaesthetic, the operation itself takes 6 to 8 hours. The upside is that it always achieves longer lasting, more complete and far more dramatic results. At the end of the day, the only way to decide whether or not it’s worth it is to have a consultation session.
Our frequently asked questions are meant to provide you with a guide to some common concerns regarding our most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. For full details on any surgical or non-surgical procedure performed in our clinics, we recommend booking a consultation with one of our highly experienced surgeons.
Will there be scarring?As a body lift procedure is a comprehensive surgery, there will be visible scarring on areas of the body. Your surgeon will endeavour to limit scar length and position the scars in a way that is not conspicuous, but nonetheless, scars may be more noticeable than anticipated, and it is important that your expectations about the surgery are realistic and that you discuss the outcomes with your surgeon.
Potential risks and complicationsWith any surgery, there is a certain level of risk. Some of the general potential complications of any surgery 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
