The word “body lift” can sound scarier than it really is. We want to help you understand exactly what the procedure is, and why it may be right or wrong for you. It is crucial to know who the procedure is designed for, what it can do, and why it works.

What is a body lift?

There are two primary types of body lifts: an upper body lift and a lower body lift. An upper body lift consists of a breast lift, an upper arm lift, and/or surgery to remove fat rolls from behind your back. Dr. Wallace works to remove the excess skin and fat from this region of your body in order to create a smoother contour.

A lower body lift (otherwise known as a belt lipectomy) has the same goals as an upper body lift, but for a different region of your body. For lower body lift procedures, Dr. Wallace tightens and sculpts the buttocks, the back of the thighs, the outer thighs, inner thighs, and/or the abdomen. If you are wondering which region of your body you want to focus on, Dr. Wallace can offer unmatched to help you make your decision.

What does body lift surgery look like?

If you decide to opt for a body lift after consulting with Dr. Wallace, you will learn that a body lift requires general anesthesia and will require an overnight stay. You should not feel worried about this, as it is just to ensure you are as safe and healthy as possible.

What can I expect after surgery?

You may be wondering, “how can a body lift help me?” Well, once you undergo the procedure and recover, you’ll find that you are much lighter than you were before. Your new body can not only give you the confidence that you may have lost when you were not your ideal weight, but it also gives you the chance to start anew. When you see your results, you may acquire inspiration to keep working toward your fitness and body goals.

If you live in the Dallas, Frisco, or Plano areas, are just not working for you, then call Dr. Charles A. Wallace, M.D. and learn why a body lift might be the perfect fit for you.
