Body Lift

Body Contouring After Weight Loss in NYC

Losing a large amount of weight should be an exciting and positive experience, but if you’re stuck with large amounts of excess skin afterward, it doesn’t always feel that way. Our surgeons understand the end goal of patients who have lost a large amount of weight–and it is not to be stuck with sagging skin. With a body lift, our team can help add the finishing touches to your newly slimmer body, providing you with well-toned and natural looking contours that complement your healthy new lifestyle.

  • A full body lift is a comprehensive procedure that addresses excess tissue and fat in patients who have lost extreme amounts of weight, especially those who have undergone bariatric or gastric bypass surgery. For these men and women, exercise cannot eliminate the larger amounts of excess skin that has lost its elasticity.

    We customize each body lift procedure to the patient and their unique needs for improvements of the abdomen, buttocks, back, and thighs.

  • Massive weight loss is an amazing accomplishment that should be rewarded with not only a healthier life but also a more confident outlook. For many, the excess skin that remains after weight loss restricts movement, comfortable dressing and prevents complete enjoyment of the weight loss. Our surgeons recommend that patients maintain their weight loss for a minimum of six months to a year prior to choosing to have a body lift surgery.

    At New Look New Life, we pride ourselves on tailoring the safest and most effective cosmetic treatments to each individual patient. Drawing on our surgeons general surgery backgrounds, they will often recommend that patients undergo body lift procedures in two or more stages. Anesthesia risks are reduced and the recovery is more manageable.

  • Our New York cosmetic surgeon is skilled in safely performing body lift procedures with the most natural and appealing results. However, the decision to have body lift surgery should not be taken lightly. Following a thorough consultation with you and your physician, as well as medical clearance, our staff will schedule the various phases of your body lift.

  • Whether performed as a total procedure or staged in sections, body lift results are immediate and significant. As with most cosmetic procedures, your enhanced body will continue to improve throughout the healing process.

  • If you choose to stage your body lift, we will likely perform your lower body lift separate from your upper body lift. Your lower body lift will likely include a tummy tuck, thigh lifts, and a butt lift or buttocks enhancement. Your upper body lift will include a chest or breast lift, back lift, and arm lifts. Our surgeons will skillfully make as few incisions as possible, removing excess fat and skin as is suitable for your body. Their dedication to natural contouring and appropriate size reduction will give you the slender, tighter appearance you desire.

    A total body lift is a comprehensive surgical procedure performed in a hospital setting. Patients who undergo this type of body lift surgery will spend a few days recovering in the hospital prior to returning home to rest.

  • For patients who choose to stage their body lift procedures, an overnight stay is not required. If you choose to have a total body lift, then you will require overnight hospital stays.

  • Body lift recovery requires one to two weeks if done in stages. A total body lift requires a significant amount of additional rest and recovery time.

  • While our cosmetic surgery team is very experienced in body lift procedures, surgical complications could include an adverse reaction to anesthesia, blood clots, infection, or bleeding. Proper adherence to recovery guidelines is important to prevent wound separation or the need for additional wound care.

    Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call their surgeon’s cell phone immediately.

  • Body lifts yield drastic skin reduction results that are long lasting. As the body naturally ages, some skin elasticity will be lost. However, maintaining a consistent weight will preserve your body lift results indefinitely.

  • Once you determine how your body lift procedures will be staged, we will outline all detailed expenses.

  • During your initial consultation, we listen to your body goals and present you with a range of cosmetic procedures that might be right for you. We will give you a thorough understanding of your options that might include liposuction, Lunchtime Lipo, tummy tuck, thigh lift or arm lift, breast reduction, facelift or neck lift, or other body and facial procedures.
