Introduction to Body Lift

The act of weight loss deserves all of the praise that comes with any personal achievement. however, there are instances in which your body doesn’t bounce back as quickly as you’d like (or at all). As your skin stretches to meet the demands of its extra mass, it can have the tendency to stay stretched, due to your body’s lack of elastic production. Dr. Golger offers a surgical Body Lift to help remove the excess skin and fat from your lower torso and achieve a much nicer, and more lean aesthetic.

What is a Body Lift?

A Body Lift is a surgical procedure that is normally required after a person achieves extreme weight loss. It is often applied to eliminate the folds of sagging skin that is typically left behind in several common areas, such as your abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. The goal of this surgery is to improve your underlying supportive tissue’s shape and tone. Any areas where there is excess sagging are removed, which can improve a dimpled or irregular skin surface. In situations where the patient has poor skin elasticity, you may require Liposuction as an additional procedure for best results.

Who Are The
Best Candidates
For Body Lift?

This procedure is commonly performed on patients who were once obese and have lost weight naturally or by means of surgery to eliminate loose hanging folds of skin around the torso and midsection. The best candidates for a Body Lift in Scottsdale are the ones who:

  • Are healthy individuals without medical conditions that impair healing or increased risk of surgery
  • Have significant soft tissue looseness in one or multiple body areas
  • Possess a positive outlook and realistic goals for what body lift surgery can accomplish

What’s the First Step?

The first step towards a Body Lift in Scottsdale is to book a consultation with Dr. Golger. During this appointment, you will go over your objectives for the surgery, review your medical history, and examine your target areas for the procedure. Based on this information, Dr. Golger will create a customized surgical plan that caters to your specific requirements for your Body Lift.

The surgical plan will outline the techniques to be employed, the anesthesia options available, and the expected outcome of the surgery. If you are content with the plan, you can coordinate a date with our Patient Coordinator, who will also give you a detailed set of pre-operative instructions to follow before your Body Lift.

What to Expect on the Day of Body Lift

When you come in for your Body Lift, you will begin by being administered general anesthesia. Once you are sedated, Dr. Golger will begin your surgery by creating an incision around your body, through which he will remove excess skin and fat from areas such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and lower back. The goal is to tighten the midsection leaving you with a more contoured silhouette. Your incisions will be made in inconspicuous areas that hide the appearance of your natural creases or clothing line. To further enhance the results of the Body Lift, liposuction may be combined with the procedure to extract fatty tissue from stubborn problem areas and smooth out the body contour.

The time of the procedure can vary based on the patient’s needs, but typically takes between 6-8 hours.

Body Lift Recovery

After your Body Lift is complete, we encourage you to give yourself ample time to heal and recover. We typically recommend that you relax and rest for approximately one week before gradually resuming light, non-strenuous activities. To support delicate tissue, and minimize swelling and discomfort, you will need to wear a compression garment for several weeks following the surgery. As your body continues to heal, you can gradually return to normal activities after approximately 6 weeks. We understand that the recovery process can be a challenging and uncertain time, but we’re committed to providing you with the highest level of care and support to ensure successful results.
