When you have experienced massive weight loss, the end of that journey can leave you with loose, sagging skin and tissue. Unfortunately, once the skin has been stretched to a certain degree, it will continue to sag and droop unless surgically corrected. Over time, as your skin stretched to accommodate weight gain, it can lose its ability to bounce back.

Sadly, there is no amount of diet or exercise will help your skin regain its supple elastic quality. A body lift performed by Dr. Landon Pryor can finally allow you to have the trim, fit body shape you have worked so hard to have.

Why is a Body Lift Performed?

When you have lost a significant amount of weight, it is common to be left with loose, hanging skin on abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and flanks. Your dreams of having a tight, toned body at the end of your weight loss journey are incomplete, even after achieving an ideal weight. Body lift surgery can help to sculpt the beautiful, firm contours that allow you to wear tight or revealing clothing with confidence.

What are the Benefits of a Body Lift?

A body lift will allow you to sculpt the beautiful new curves of your body, removing excess skin and fatty tissue from the abdomen, back, hips, thighs, and buttocks. Following body lift surgery, you will also experience:

  • A lifted, tightened tummy
  • Contoured buttocks and thighs
  • Removal of excess skin and fat
  • Beautifully defined curves
  • An improvement in your self-esteem

If you are experiencing excess skin accompanied by pockets of fatty tissue which interferes with your ability to live life to the fullest, you may be an excellent candidate for a body lift.

This can cause painful chafing and skin rashes, not to mention impacting your self-image. Dr. Pryor will happily meet with you to discuss your vision for body contouring and let you know if you are a candidate for body lift surgery.

What is the Recovery from a Body Lift Like?

Each body lift procedure is unique, tailored to the specific needs of the individual patient. Dr. Pryor will provide you with post-operative instructions that will guide you through your recovery.

You will also be instructed to wear compression garments for one to two weeks following your body lift to aid with any swelling and allow your body to heal properly.
