A body lift, performed by one of Wilmington Plastic Surgery’s world-class surgeons, can improve the shape and tone of the body’s underlying tissue.

With a body lift, excess fat and loose skin are removed to treat conditions caused, in part, by poor tissue elasticity. In addition, the procedure(s) can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface, commonly known as cellulite.

Body lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat, as liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours. In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a combination of liposuction and body lift techniques may be recommended.

A body lift may include these areas:
  • Abdomen, locally or extending around the sides and into the lower back
  • Buttocks that may be low, flat or shaped unevenly
  • Groin that may sag into the inner thigh
  • Thigh, all around or isolating the inner, outer or posterior thigh
