Losing a large amount of weight can be immensely rewarding. But, one of the most disappointing side effects of extreme weight loss is the amount of excess, loose skin that remains. A body lift is a procedure by which loose, excess skin is surgically removed revealing the true and dramatic results of weight loss.
The South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery specializes in body lifts and has helped thousands of patients achieve a contoured, attractive body that they’re proud to show off. Body Lift surgery removes excess skin and tissue utilizing several surgical procedures. Our team of experienced doctors and patient advocates will work with you to create an individualized, surgery plan without compromising quality or safety.
A body lift is a very complex surgery and may include abdominoplasty, breast reduction/breast lift, outer thigh lift, Brazilian butt lift, and removal of skin and fat from the back and hips.
The cost of Body Lift surgery depends on several factors, including the complexity of the procedure and the number of areas where surgery will be performed.
