If you have experienced dramatic weight loss, you may be struggling with excess, flabby skin that prevents you from enjoying your new figure. Fortunately, a body lift is an effective way to tighten and remove excess skin, so you can feel confident in your new look. At ReNova Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we offer body lift surgery to residents in and around Pittsburgh, PA.
What is a Body Lift?
A body lift is a series of procedures that are performed to lift and tighten skin after substantial weight loss. There are several different types of body lifts, including:
- Full Body Lift–This targets the entire body.
- Lower Body Lift–This targets just the lower body.
When you meet with Dr. Julio Clavijo-Alvarez, you’ll have the opportunity to explain your concerns and goals. He will then help you determine which body lift procedure is right for your needs.
How Much Does a Body Lift Cost?
The average cost for a circumferential body lift ranges from $8,000 – $12,500. However, the exact cost varies depending on the number of areas targeted and the treatment method used. Given the comprehensive nature of a full body lift, you can expect this to be more expensive than the lift of one specific area.
At ReNova Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we price our procedures on an individual basis and will calculate your lower body lift cost or full body lift cost at the time of your consultation.
We are proud to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through Dollar Bank and CareCredit®, to ensure all our procedures are financially accessible.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Body Lift?
If you’ve reached your desired weight, but have unnecessary, flabby skin obscuring your accomplishments, you could be a good candidate for a body lift. However, the best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation.
How is a Body Lift Performed?
Our team, led by Dr. Julio Clavijo-Alvarez designs each body lift procedure on a case-by-case basis. Some patients may require a more invasive procedure, while others may benefit from a non-invasive approach. We will discuss the recommended methods for your body lift during your consultation.
What is Recovery Like After a Body Lift?
Recovery after your body lift will vary, depending on your procedure and your body’s individual response. However, most patients require four to six weeks of rest before returning to normal activities. Initially you may need to focus on pain management. You may also wear a compression garment and should follow your doctor’s specific recovery instructions.
How Long Will My Body Lift Results Last?
The results of your body lift are designed to be long-term. However, the best way to maintain optimum results is to follow a healthy diet and regular exercise routine.
