The body lift procedure is designed for improving the tone and shape of the core tissue that is responsible for supporting fat and skin.
Dr. Minniti explains that a full body lift is ideal for those looking to treat the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, hips, and waist in a single procedure. In a body lift, the incision made in a tummy tuck is extended all the way around your lower torso. This allows the surgeon to tighten the muscles of the buttocks and lift the thighs while also executing the traditional abdominoplasty.
The type and length of the incision will vary, depending on the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed as well as the placement of the skin. Dr. Minniti schedules an initial consultation with each body lift patient to discuss their incision preferences prior to surgery. Like most other cosmetic surgeries, the body lift procedure is absolutely customizable to each patient’s individual goals and needs.
