A major operation involving the removal of areas of excess skin and soft tissue, particularly of the abdomen and lower back areas.

Why you might need it

A total body lift is sometimes referred to as a circumferential body lift or an upper and lower body lift.  It is a major operation involving the removal of areas of excess skin and soft tissue, particularly of the abdomen and lower back areas.

It may involve lifting the whole abdominal skin, repositioning of the belly button and tightening of the abdominal muscles and also lifting of the buttock skin and repositioning.

A total body lift procedure can cover numerous individual procedures such as liposuction, thigh lifts, buttock lifts, arm lifts and tummy tucks as a whole operation.

Total body lift surgery is used for patients with excess skin over their bodies and is especially helpful for patients following considerable weight loss and who may, as a result, have lost skin elasticity.  Excess skin can cause chafing and discomfort, as well as prevent patients from wearing clothes in a smaller size.

The procedure

A total body lift procedure can cover numerous individual procedures such as liposuction, thigh lifts, buttock lifts, arm lifts and tummy tucks as a whole operation.

For patients following significant weight loss other adjunctive procedures may be required.  A consultation regarding the risks and limitations of surgery will help you to choose a procedure that will meet with your expectations.

A total body lift procedure is a major operation, performed under general anaesthesia. The operating time and your length of stay in hospital will be determined by the extent of the surgery as discussed at the initial consultation but you can expect to take up to six weeks at home for initial recovery.
