Total Body Lift
About the Procedure

Following gastric bypass, gastric sleeve surgery or lap-band surgery, patients often lose 50 to 150 pounds. With this major weight loss, sagging skin on the body appears. This excess skin usually appears in the abdomen, thighs, and buttock areas of the body. Sagging skin may also appear in the face, arms, chest, or breasts.

Because there is such an abundance of extra skin, exercise alone cannot make it disappear. The goal of a body lift is to remove this skin and tighten the loose areas.

Although there are many variations of a body lift, the typical "total body lift" includes a tummy tuck, thigh lift and buttock lift.

A total body lift is major surgery and is performed under general anesthesia. It usually requires a two-night stay. A total body lift is one of the more uncomfortable cosmetic procedures; however, a Pain Pump is used to deliver numbing medication on a continual basis.
While every surgery leaves a scar, the surgeon customizes the incisions to match the patient's needs.

Recovery from a total body lift is two to three weeks. You may return to work in two weeks, although there may still have some discomfort.
