The Body Lift Procedure Steps start with anesthesia that may be administered intravenously or as general anesthesia. The incision in a body lift is commonly made in what is known as a bikini pattern where the abdomen, waist, thighs, buttocks and groin are all tightened and lifted in one fell swoop. The last step, if this is the only procedure being performed at this time (sometimes the body lift is performed in combination with Liposuction if there is stubborn fat in the area as well) is closing the incision through the use of sutures, tapes, or skin adhesives.
Results from a Body Lift procedure are visible almost immediately, though your body will continue to heal and adjust over time.
