Body Lift in Raleigh North Carolina

Tight, Glowing Skin

A body lift surgery is designed to erase excess loose and sagging skin, allowing you to look and feel confident. As a body lift procedure aims to remove excess body fat, trim extra skin, and firm the underlying muscles, it profoundly works to transform your overall appearance into one you will feel comfortable and confident in. A body lift tightens and firms the skin allowing for a smooth, youthful appearance to shine though. The best part is all aspects from top to bottom are firmed and tightened.

“Dr. Collins is an excellent doctor who cares for his patients. During the consultation he explained the pros and cons of the surgery. He also answered my questions and addressed my concerns.”

About Body Lift

Body Lift Treats:

Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight tend to encompass a growing population of those who wish to erase excessive, loose skin. A body lift procedure aims to improve the shape and tone of underlying tissue within the body. Body lift procedures can be complemented with an arm lift, thigh lift, abdominoplasty, and breast lift surgery. A body lift procedure will let you glow in your own skin.

Results vary from upper, lower, or full body procedures. Since the procedures are so extensive, they take careful time and consideration within the healing process. This highly effective procedure allows you to view results almost instantly, but finalized results may take around a year to fully appear.

Treatment Options

Upper Body

Some surgeons refer to a full body lift as an upper and lower body lift. In an upper body lift, the arms are treated with an arm lift and the breasts are contoured with a breast lift.

Lower Body

The lower body lift called a belt lipectomy, one of the most popular types. Many patients find that the majority of weight loss occurs in areas such as the buttocks, hips, and thighs. To begin your lower body lift, Dr. Collins will make an incision around the belt-line of your waist, across your lower abdomen, and down your inner thighs.

Total Body

A total body lift is a much more intensive procedure than an upper or lower body lift. Many plastic surgeons perform it in stages, as the full surgery can take between four and seven hours to complete. During total body lift surgery, Dr. Collins will begin by completing a mid-body lift, making an incision into your abdomen, around your waist, and down to your upper thighs. Once he has firmed your underlying muscles, removed unwanted fat, trimmed away excess skin, and pulled it smooth.
