What is a Body Lift?
A body lift is a complete body contouring solution that addresses loose skin and stubborn fat in multiple areas of the body. While many body contouring treatments only target a specific area, the body lift procedure combines these techniques for full-body results. The body lift can be a great solution for patients who have recently achieved significant weight loss, and have excess skin remaining. It can also be an effective solution for patients who have developed sagging skin in multiple areas of the body as a result of the aging process. In any case, the body lift procedure is ideal for targeting the following areas in a single procedure:
How Much Does a Body Lift Cost?
The cost of a body lift at Savannah Plastic Surgery can range from $13,500 to $15,000. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on variables that include your treatment goals and the extent of treatment necessary to achieve those results. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We can also determine your eligibility for health insurance coverage at this time.

What is the Body Lift Treatment Like?
The body lift procedure is performed in our surgicenter and begins with using the appropriate anesthetic, ensuring that our patients receive a safe and comfortable treatment. The approach to your body lift procedure will vary depending on your treatment goals. A body lift can be performed as an upper body lift, targeting the arms and abdomen; a lower body lift, targeting the legs and hips; or a full body lift, targeting all areas. The type of body lift you receive, as well as your treatment goals, will determine the location and size of your surgical incisions. Through the incisions, we will remove excess skin and fat to produce the desired body contours. After several hours of surgery, the incision will be closed and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Body Lift Recovery Like?
After a body lift procedure, it is common to experience soreness, bruising, swelling, and varying discomfort throughout the treatment areas. A body lift is one of the most extensive body contouring procedures we offer, and as such, requires the longest recovery period. Patients are encouraged to take at least a month off of work and other normal activities. It is important to rest as much as possible during this time to let the body heal and prevent any unnecessary stress. Patients can resume exercise and other strenuous activities about two months after treatment. Due to these restrictions, many patients choose to have someone help them around the home for a few weeks.
What Body Lift Results Can I Expect?
The results from the body lift procedure will be noticeable immediately, but it may take a few months for all swelling to subside and for the full results to become visible. Once the body lift procedure is performed, the results are permanent. However, future weight gain and aging can impact your results. We encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits to make their results last as long as possible.
