A well-toned body with smooth contours often is a sign of fitness achieved by healthy diet and exercise. But exercise cannot always achieve results for individuals who have loose, sagging skin and uneven contours. Aging, sun damage, pregnancy and fluctuations in body weight as well as genetic factors contribute to poor tissue elasticity and may result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms.
If you desire a firmer, more youthful looking body contour, then a surgical body lift may help achieve your goals. In general, a body lift reduces excess fat and skin resulting in smoother skin and contours. These physical changes to the body can improve your body image and enhance your self-confidence.

A circumferential incision around the body removes an apron of excess skin and fat and repositions and tightens tissues.
A complete lower body lift treats the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs in one procedure.
