Body Lift

After experiencing massive weight loss as a result of gastric bypass surgery or conventional weight-loss methods, many patients are left with large quantities of inelastic skin that do not respond well to continued diet and exercise. Body lift surgeries are an ideal option for patients who wish to undergo surgery to remove loose skin from multiple areas of the body.

Body lift surgery usually includes two or more of the following procedures:

  • a circumferential lift or belt lipectomy, designed to remove excess skin from the buttocks and midsection
  • an arm lift, which removes hanging skin from the upper arms
  • inner (medial) or outer (bilateral) thigh lifts
  • a breast lift or breast reduction surgery

Body lift surgeries are highly versatile procedures, and Drs. Vickery and  Keegan  draw on their decades of experience and breadth of technique to create optimal results. For patients who undergo extensive body lifts or other types of plastic surgery, New York Drs. Vickery and Keegan may work as a team to reduce operative time and minimize surgical risks. For some patients, a series of separate surgeries may be necessary to ensure maximum safety.

Body lift surgeries may be performed on an outpatient basis in some cases, but many patients elect to stay overnight in our private recovery rooms, where they receive one-on-one care from our specially trained nursing staff.
