A Tummy Tuck May Not Cut It

Benefits of a Body LiftIf you’ve undergone major weight loss in your life, you should feel incredibly proud of such a major accomplishment. Shedding lots of weight provides numerous physical, psychological, and emotional benefits. But for many people, one part of major weight loss – sagging skin – prevents them from being able to jump for joy. Sagging skin can accumulate on many areas of the body as a result of major weight loss. While a tummy tuck can correct sagging abdominal skin, it does not remove excess skin from around the back, flanks, hips, and thighs. If a tummy tuck may not cut it for you, consider getting a body lift from Dr. Zoumaras. A body lift can improve the contours of your body after major weight loss so that you can more fully enjoy the benefits of all your hard work.

What Is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a procedure that provides body contouring and shaping for the lower torso and upper thighs. It’s also called a belt lipectomy because the doctor uses a circumferential incision to dramatically contour your lower body and achieve more aesthetically desirable proportions. With a body lift, Dr. Zoumaras contours the abdomen, back, hips, flanks, and thighs by removing excess skin to dramatically sculpt the body. He can also remove a minimal amount of excess fat from areas such as the lower tummy. Whereas a tummy tuck only flattens the tummy, a body lift flattens the tummy, tightens the back, lifts the thighs, and more fully transforms your lower body.

Benefits of a Body Lift

If you’ve undergone major weight loss, you may feel like a whole new person. But with unattractive excess skin, you may feel burdened by the memories of your life before losing the weight. By removing this excess skin through belt lipectomy, you do not have to be burdened by these things. You can feel free to move forward with a fresh, new start. After this procedure, you may find that your body proportions, clothing fit, self-image, confidence, and overall happiness levels improve drastically.

World-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Jack Zoumaras recommends patients be at a stable body weight for at least three to six months before surgery for the best results after a body lift.
