Body Lift

Model Photo

For men and women who have lost a great deal of weight, feeling satisfied with their appearance may still be out of reach. One of the primary reasons dissatisfaction occurs is that loose, sagging skin detracts from their newly slim figure. A body lift from Chicago area plastic surgeon Dr. Sandeep Jejurikar can reduce excess skin and residual fat deposits to refine the post-weight-loss shape.

To learn more about body lifting procedures, you can request a free cosmetic consultation online or call Dr. Jejurikar's office at (630) 960-0023 in Downers Grove.

Body Lift Considerations

When an individual loses a great deal of weight, their skin will not have the elasticity to tighten over their newly slim contours. This leads to unappealing flaps and rolls of skin. But weight loss isn't the only cause. Aging, pregnancy and some other factors can also play a role in sagging skin and fat.

The term "body lift" can describe a number of different procedures. These procedures include an arm lift, a thigh lift, butt lift, and a total body lift In Chicago, these procedures can be performed together or separately depending upon each patient's unique needs and goals. Dr. Jejurikar develops a unique treatment plan for each patient, based upon his many years of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery experience.

The Body Lift Procedure

Depending on the severity and the location of excess fat and skin, several incisions may be made:

  • For an arm lift, an incision is made along the inside or back of the upper arm.
  • For a thigh lift, incisions are usually made along the inner thigh from the groin to the knee. An incision from the groin to the hip may also be necessary.
  • For a butt lift, incisions may be made along the belt line, along the sides of the buttocks, or below the buttocks.
  • For a total body lift, the incision mentioned above may go all the way around the body in order to deliver the best aesthetic result.

Additional incisions also may be required to achieve optimal results. With these incisions, excess skin and fat will be removed. A tummy tuck or liposuction in the Chicago area may be combined with your body lift procedure to achieve the smoothest shape possible.
