Definition - What does Body Lift mean?
A body lift is a cosmetic procedure that involves toning and shaping the tissue that supports the body's skin and fat. During this procedure, excess skin and fat are removed in order to restore the proper elasticity of the tissue and create a smoother skin surface. Areas of the body that are commonly part of this procedure include the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
TheConsultation explains Body Lift
A body lift solves tissue and skin elasticity issues associated with pregnancy, aging, weight fluctuations and sun damage to the skin. A body lift is not intended to solve the issue of weight gain, but instead focuses on restoring the overall elasticity of the tissue so that the body is reshaped and can respond to other contouring techniques or liposuction. This procedure is extensive and requires several incision sites. However, plastic surgery methods allow for most incisions to be strategically placed so they are hidden by clothing.
