Body Lift

Losing a significant amount of weight is an achievement worthy of celebrating. However, often after weight loss, the skin doesn’t “snap back,” and you’re left with loose, hanging skin on the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs that shrouds your new, slimmer body. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Hagopian can help you make the most of your hard-earned shape with a body lift at his Atlanta, GA, plastic surgery practice.

Case #85

This 50 year old patient with lipedema had liposuction to her legs, hips and abdomen. She then had an extended spiral thigh, calf, and knee lift to remove extra skin. She is thrilled with her results. 

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

What Is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a plastic surgery that removes redundant skin on the mid and lower body. It’s a popular choice for people who have achieved major weight loss. The procedure improves skin tone and reveals smoother, firmer contours by combining a buttock lift, thigh lift, and an extended version of a tummy tuck.

While a body lift typically focuses on the skin, you can also sculpt away any underlying stubborn fat by combining your procedures with SAFELipo® liposuction.

How Much Does a Body Lift Cost?

Starting at $10,000

A body lift, or belt lipectomy, starts at $10,000. This is an extensive surgery that takes around 3.5 hours. Your actual cost may vary depending on the complexity of the surgery and other factors. You will be given a personalized price quote at your consultation.

How Long Is Body Lift Recovery?

It typically takes about 2 to 3 weeks to return to desk work after a body lift and closer to 4 or 6 weeks to begin gradually resuming exercise.

What Do Body Lift Scars Look Like?

Dr. Hagopian takes care to place body lift incisions along natural creases or in areas that are easily hidden under clothing. While scarring is an inevitable part of any skin removal surgery, we offer scar therapies such as steroid injections, microneedling, and silicone gel strips from the Silagen® scar refinement system to minimize it.
