Body Lift Surgery in San Diego

Personal Attention & Specialized Care

A body lift, also know as a belt lipectomy, is a cosmetic procedure frequently performed on patients who have undergone major weight loss. Body lift surgery is designed to improve the appearance of your body by removing excess skin and resculpting the underlying tissue of your lower body.
More than one surgery may be required to achieve optimal results. Prior to your procedure, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia will be administered for your comfort. Your surgeon will then make a series of incisions to reposition underlying tissue and remove excess skin. The incision length and pattern will depend on the location and amount of excess skin and fat planned for removal. Following the removal of excess fat and tissue, liposuction may also be necessary to boost contour. The skin will then be redraped and tightened across the newly shaped body. All incisions will be closed with a combination of sutures, skin adhesives or surgical tape.

Body Lift Surgery Recovery

Immediately following surgery, it is common for patients to experience some pain and soreness at the sites of incision. Your surgeon may prescribe you oral pain medication to manage your discomfort. Drainage tubes may be inserted underneath your skin to drain excess fluid and you may be required to wear a compression garment for several days to minimize swelling.

A body lift is a major surgical procedure and typically requires several weeks of recovery. Most patients remain in the hospital for the first 1-3 days after surgery. A full recovery is likely to take between 4-6 weeks. Strenuous activities may be restricted for up to eight weeks. The results of surgery will become apparent as swelling gradually subsides. Incision scars may take several months to flatten and fade.
