About Body Lift Surgery
The cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons at Dr. Grant Hamlet specialize in body and facial procedures. These professionals will meticulously remove unnecessary skin and help show off your weight loss results. This surgery often requires liposuction and skin removal techniques. At Dr. Grant Hamlet, we use Vaser Liposuction to reduce excess fat stores and help accentuate your body’s curves.
Lower Body Lift
The main technique in a body lift is a lower body lift, also referred to as a belt abdominoplasty, which will help transform the abdomen and lower back. This procedure requires an incision pattern along the front of the abdomen and lower back. Excess skin will be removed through this incision and the underlying abdominal muscles will be tightened. The remaining skin will be lifted, helping to lift the buttocks and thighs.
For a more extensive buttock or thigh lift, you can discuss adding these techniques onto your procedure in your consultation. A thigh lift and butt lift will help reduce folds and irregularities in the surface of your skin. The result will be smooth thighs and perky buttocks.
Extended Tummy Tuck
Another popular form of a lower body lift is an extended tummy tuck. If you are not looking to reduce skin in your back, an extended tummy tuck will only reduce skin around your abdomen. The procedure is similar to a lower body lift and your abdominal muscles will be tightened and remaining skin made taut.
Upper Body Lift
An upper body lift is a combination of techniques that help to make your upper body look young and smooth. An upper body lift may include techniques such as an arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, that will remove extra arm skin and improve the proportion of your arms. Other techniques include surgically reducing excess skin in the back, face, neck, and breasts. Incision techniques will vary based on your anatomical features and desired outcome.
The details of your full body lift surgery will be based on your preferred aesthetic and extent of improvement needed.

During your private meeting, you may meet with one or more of our surgical specialists. They will listen as you explain what aspects of your body you are unhappy with and would like to improve.

An examination will be performed so that our team has a good understanding of your anatomical features and desired aesthetic.
Together, they will create a treatment plan that considers your unique figure and ideal result.
The details of a body lift, including potential risks and the recovery period, will be discussed. We encourage our patients to ask lots of questions and voice their concerns. This is your opportunity to talk about your concerns with experienced professionals. Our goal is for you to leave your consultation educated and confident in your procedure! Before you leave, you will schedule an appointment with our team and will be informed on how to prepare for the surgery and recovery of a body lift surgery.
There are a few steps you will need to take to ensure a healthy surgery and recovery.
The best way to start preparing for surgery is by picking up prescribed medications well in advance of your appointment. Arrange for rides to and from the surgery and ask someone to stay with you for the first twenty-four hours of your recovery.
As the surgery date gets closer, choose a recovery area of your home that will be free of disturbance. This area is often a bedroom but should be somewhere you can relax and be stress-free. This area should have lots of pillows, your medications, and entertainment.
Twelve hours before your surgery, you will need to fast and get a good night’s rest. The morning of your appointment, dress in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes that will not be tight on treated areas.
Body Lift Procedure
The surgery will take a few hours, and once completed drains will be placed and incisions closed and bandaged.
When you arrive at your surgery, you will be asked to change into a gown. Once changed, your treatment areas will be cleaned and incision sites marked. Your pre-determined anesthesia and sedation will be administered and, once you are resting, the surgery will begin. The surgical team will assist your cosmetic surgeon as they apply incisions. Skin will be reduced and liposuction may be used to reduce excess fat deposits. The surgical team’s movements will be strategic and deliberate to provide attractive contours. Together, they will work to give you your best results.
Recovery After Surgery
When your surgery is completed, you will be monitored as you wake up from the sedation. You may need to be monitored for a while to ensure you are doing well. Once you are deemed healthy, your friend will be able to drive you back home to complete your recovery there.
As the anesthesia wears off, your incision sites may be swollen and sore. Medication will help reduce discomfort and help you rest. You may need to adjust your sleeping position so you don’t apply pressure to incisions.
Many patients take seven to ten days off from work as they heal. This timeframe will fluctuate based on the extent of your procedure, your health, and the activity level of your job. Any drains and stitches will be removed in a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. Your check-up will be a great time to ask questions and learn what to expect in the rest of your recovery process.
You will see your results instantly! You can enjoy smooth skin right away! These results will only increase as swelling and bruising decreases. Your final results will set in after a few months but patients can often return to work within a week or two.
Your results will be long-lasting!
To maintain your results, eat healthily and live an active lifestyle.
