Body lift procedures correct sagging skin. Body lifts can be done on the whole body or can be used to target either the upper or lower body.
Dr. Mouchantat performs the following body lift procedures:
- breast lift
- arm lift
- thigh lift
- tummy tuck
A complete lower body lift corrects sagging hips, buttocks, thighs, abdomen and waist. It combines a thigh lift and tummy tuck with surgery to lift the hips and buttocks.
Body Lift Options
A body lift can be done on your whole body or just your upper or lower body. A whole body or lower body lift can be done as a single procedure, or can be done as a series of procedures. Dr. Mouchantat will develop a surgical plan that is specific to your needs.
The Body Lift Procedure
When you consult Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Mouchantat about a body lift, he will develop a surgical plan based on your needs and physical condition. Your health will be a major factor in Dr. Mouchantat’s decision about whether to perform a comprehensive body lift as a single surgery, or whether you will need to undergo multiple body lift procedures over time. Having multiple surgeries over time allows you to heal and recover between surgeries.
For a comprehensive lower body lift, the procedure may involve an incision that goes around the circumference of your body near your waist. The skin will be raised below this incision to create a firm appearance, and excess skin will be removed. This surgery lifts the hips, buttocks, abdomen and waist. A thigh lift would also be performed to lift skin on the thighs.
Body Lift Aftercare
The healing and recovery period after a body lift surgery varies, depending on the procedures Dr. Mouchantat performs. For all body lift procedures, you should plan to rest and take time off work. You will need to wear compression garments after your surgery, and you will also need to care for sutures. Some body lift surgeries will require you to care for small drains at the incision site.
