Body Lift

Located in Louisville, KY.

Body Lift

The body lift (torsoplasty) is an extended version of the tummy tuck. Body lift is frequently combined with other plastic surgery operations including liposuction to achieve a patient’s desired result.

Through torsoplasty and a responsible recovery period, patients can experience the dramatic and long-lasting benefits of plastic surgery firsthand.

Ideal Candidates for a Body Lift

A body lift is perfect for patients who have sagging skin and pockets of stubborn fat in multiple areas of the body. Candidates must be in good overall health with no post-surgery healing issues. Candidates must have realistic expectations regarding the results of the body lift.

Your Consultation

During your body lift consultation, you will meet with one of our skilled surgeons. They will listen to your concerns and aesthetic goals. They will perform a physical and evaluate your medical history. After this, your surgeon will create a surgical plan.

You will learn more about the details of the body lift process, including preparation, the surgery session, and the recovery process. Your surgeon will make sure to answer all of your questions. The surgery date will be set at the end of your consultation.

The Body Lift Procedure

In general, a body lift procedure can last 3 to 4 hours, depending on the number of treatment areas and goals of the patient. The surgery will start with administration of general anesthesia.

Incisions will then be created. Depending on the surgical plan, excess fat may be removed and underlying tissues may be tightened. Excess loose skin will also be removed, and the remaining skin will be tightened. The incisions will be closed using sutures, and bandages will be applied.

The Recovery Process

Your surgeon will go over the recovery instructions before you are released. Swelling, bruising, pain, and discomfort can be experienced at the early stage of the recovery period. Medications will be prescribed to ease the pain and discomfort.

You will need to wear elastic post-surgical garments to control swelling. A timetable will be provided for when physical activities are allowed. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to assess recovery and remove stitches.

How Much Does a Body Lift Cost?

The cost of a body lift surgery will depend on the exact procedures involved. The size and number of areas being addressed will impact the overall price of body lift surgery.

Patient Testimonials

"I can honestly say that I am impressed"

“I have had Ultherapy treatment and I can honestly say that I am impressed. Each treatment brings an immediate tightening effect and then over the next few months you see your skin continue to improve. It is excellent at stimulating the deeper skin layers. The collagen in my face gets a major boost – and so does my confidence level! This is a treatment that actually produces real and noticeable results. I now have a maintenance treatment on a yearly basis. The treatment is completely tolerable with no downtime. In my opinion, there are not too many treatments available that can give you impressive results and no time out for healing, you’re good to go. You should approach the treatment with realistic expectations and afterwards be pleasantly surprised. It is not a miracle worker, but it just might be the next closest thing. My experience has been completely positive and I love to get a big bang for my buck. Ultherapy is an amazing treatment and a very good investment. Aging is inevitable, but who says you can’t do it gracefully and at a slower rate. I will also say that it is incredibly important to have it performed by a trusted provider who is well trained with this procedure. Abby has both the credentials as well as the experience with this treatment and I trust her without reservation. If you are considering Ultherapy, make an appointment with Abby today.”
