Body Lift

If you are suffering from loose, sagging skin and poor body contouring around the midriff, abdomen, back and hips, you might consider Body Lift surgery to remove the excess skin and fat. When combined with Liposuction and/or Arm or Thigh Reduction surgery, the results can be hugely transformative.

With the ultimate aim of helping you regain your body confidence and self-esteem, Dr. Edmund Ek specialises in a wide range of body contouring procedures, including Body Lift surgery.

Dr. Ek offers his services as a highly skilled and experienced Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon to help you safely make the final step towards reaching your goal body.

His expertise is especially valuable for those who have achieved immense weight loss (whether through diet and exercise or gastric banding) and need to remove the last stubborn relics of their former physique.

This procedure is effective in the following cases:

  • Loss of skin elasticity in the trunk, back or abdomen
  • Stubborn flabby, saggy, dimpled or orange-peel skin
  • Low self-esteem or quality of life due to sagging skin
  • Noticeable improvement when lifting the skin of the lower body

Making the decision to undergo surgery

With any surgery, it is important to learn as much as possible about the procedure before deciding to go ahead. While there is undoubtedly a lot you can find out on the internet, Dr. Ek highly recommends taking the time to see a Plastic and Reconstructive specialist in person.

Dr. Ek will spend as long as is necessary talking with you and understanding your unique case before offering his expert opinion and recommendations on whether or not surgery is the best option for you.

Dr. Ek's Body Lift procedures can either be very area-specific, such as Lower Body (tummy, thighs, buttocks and back) or Upper Body (chest, middle back), or more general (Total Body Lift). He will advise you on which operation is most appropriate for your needs.

If Dr. Ek and you together conclude that surgery will give you the most positive results, he will then work with you to plan the surgical procedure down to the finest details, including incision locations, how much skin to remove, and any other additional treatments (e.g. liposuction) that you may also benefit from.

Understanding the procedure

Depending on your specific case, the surgical procedure can vary.

However Body Lift surgery generally combines a number of surgical techniques, including:

  • Strategic removal of excess sagging skin
  • Lifting and tightening of skin to pull body skin taut
  • Additional Liposuction or Arm/Thigh Lifts to maintain body contours and proportions

The operation is performed under general anaesthetic and can vary in length depending on the case.

What results or outcomes to expect

After your treatment, Dr. Ek will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing and ensure that the surgery has been as successful as planned.

You can expect your Body Lift surgery to effectively improve your body contour and give you a more youthful-looking and toned body. In general, Body Lift results are long lasting, provided you maintain your body weight.

Dr. Ek's past patients have expressed overwhelmingly positive feedback about Body Lift surgery, as it offers an effective means of achieving their body goals that diet or exercise simply can't.

Please note that Body Lift surgery is not used for removing significant fat deposits - it is not a weight loss or obesity treatment, but is used to remove leftover skin and attached fat.
