Toronto Body Lift
Thousands of Body Lift procedures are performed successfully each year and the results are generally quite positive.
Body lift surgery is a body contouring procedure designed for patients who have lost a large amount of weight and now are left with excess hanging skin around their waist. A body lift is more correctly referred to as a lower body lift. It 'lifts' the thighs and buttocks and flattens the abdomen. Research studies have shown that a body contouring procedure such as a body lift will significantly improve the quality of life of massive weight loss patients.
A circumferential body lift is the only way to remove and tighten the loose and sagging skin left behind by a massive weight loss. Non-surgical skin tightening procedures are guaranteed to fail in these situations. Body Lift surgery is the only effective means to address your problem. As such, this is an extensive surgical procedure and not all patients are good candidates.
