Body lift is a cosmetic procedure to shape and tone the underlying tissue, supporting the excessive fat and skin in the region of the breast, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Body lift involves removal of the excessive fat and sagging skin that results in poor tissue elasticity and hampers the personal appeal of the individual. The various procedures employed for body lift can be broadly categorized as:
- Lower Body Lift: It includes lower body parts such as tummy, thighs, buttocks, and back
- Upper Body Lift: It includes upper body parts such as breasts, chest and middle back
If the treatment includes both upper and lower body lift, it is collectively known as total body lift.
