Body Lift surgery, also known as Body Contouring surgery, is a complex cosmetic procedure aimed at enhancing the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat.

Excess Skin Removal Surgery is particularly beneficial for individuals who have undergone significant weight loss, which has led to sagging skin and irregular contours in various areas of the body.

Excessive weight loss can often leave behind skin that has been stretched and is unable to conform to the new body size. In such instances, Body Lift surgery offers a comprehensive solution. The Body Lift procedure typically focuses on removing excess skin and fat while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue. The result is a more normal appearance with smoother contours.

Body Lift surgery can be performed on various parts of the body, including the abdominal area, buttocks, thighs, and breasts. The surgery can either target one specific area or several areas simultaneously, depending on your needs and desired outcomes.

Body Lift surgery addresses excess skin around the lower trunk, both front and back, elevating the buttocks, lifting the pubic region and the lateral portion of the thighs. It can be combined with a medial or full Thigh Lift.

In certain circumstances, Mr MacQuillan, together with a consultant colleague, will combine a full Lower Body Lift with a Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) and Breast Uplift (Mastopexy), known as a total Body Lift, so that post-operative downtime can be reduced.

This surgery is specialised and requires careful preoperative planning and medical work-up, normally including the use of diet supplements. If you are considering Body Lift surgery, please make this clear when booking a consultation as extra time will be allowed to cover all the essential points in detail.

Body Lift is quite extensive and differs significantly from other cosmetic surgeries like Liposuction, which only removes excess fat and does not address issues related to sagging skin. Body Lift surgery is more about redefining and reshaping the entire figure rather than just removing unwanted fat.
