Body lift is a complex surgical procedure in which loose and sagging skin throughout the body is addressed. With this procedure, stubborn fat deposits may also be removed, though this is not necessary in every case. Common as part of post-weight loss body contouring and some mommy makeover treatments, body lift surgery is a combination of sculpting procedures designed to target specific areas of the body and produce ideal dimensions to your frame.

If you are considering a body contouring procedure in the McLean, Virginia or Metro DC area, please contact New Image Plastic Surgery Associates by calling our board-certified plastic surgeon at (888) 730-4113 today to schedule an initial consultation.

What your body lift will include depends entirely on factors unique to your build and areas of concern.

To be a good candidate for body lift surgery you will need to be a nonsmoker who is in generally good health. This is a complex procedure with a sometimes lengthy recovery period. Smoking will greatly interfere with the recovery process and must be stopped at least six weeks before your procedure.

In addition to being a nonsmoker in good health, Dr. Gartside will need to consider your medical history, ability to take time off for recovery, and capacity for following pre and postoperative instructions before suggesting you undergo a body lift.
