A body lift is generally performed on formerly obese patients who’ve lost a significant amount of weight. An incision is made above the pubic area and continues around the hip, ending just above the buttocks. There it meets the incision from the opposite side. The result is a much flatter, smoother abdomen, removal of waist rolls and lifting of the outer thighs and buttocks. In short, the skin is brought into line with your actual body form for a more pleasing, healthy appearance.
