Steps involved in body lift surgery
General anesthesia or intravenous sedation is recommended to patients for comfort during surgical procedure.
For lower body lift incisions mimicking the bikini pattern is used to tighten groin, abdomen, buttock, thigh and waist in a single procedure. There may be a need for liposuction to enhance the contours before eliminating tissue and skin with an incision.
For mid-section or torsoplasty, lower body lift incision is used to gain access to abdominal muscles. For total body lifts, each part is addressed separately including arm lift, breast lift, and lower or mid body lift.
Closing the incision
Sutures are made deep within underlying tissues, so as to tighten the newly shaped contours. The skin incision is closed with stitches, clips, tapes, or skin adhesives.
