Losing a significant amount of weight is always an incredible accomplishment, but it might not always be the end of your cosmetic journey. When loose skin is left behind, body contouring in Boca Raton can help to eliminate frustrating, sagging skin that remains after losing a significant amount of weight.
Remove Sagging Skin for a Tighter, Toned Look
Weight loss or any number of life events can lead to the presence of loosened, sagging skin, which isn't exactly easy to correct through simple means like diet and exercise. A body lift can address a number of areas, enabling you to enjoy a toned and sculpted figure, removing excess skin, and trimming away stubborn fat to reveal a shapelier, sexier you. If you're in Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, or the nearby areas, and you're interested in learning what our surgeons can do for you, reach out and set up your consultation today!
What is Body Contouring?

What Occurs During the Body Lift Procedure?
A body lift is performed under general anesthesia in our Boca Raton accredited in-office surgery suite on an outpatient basis. A body lift can be combined with other body contouring procedures, such as an arm lift or thigh lift. In this procedure, an incision is made from hip bone to hip bone around the entire body, including front, sides, and back, to allow access for the maximum removal of excess skin. The skin will be removed, along with a superficial layer of fat, and the incision meticulously closed to leave a taut, smooth skin surface. This surgery generally requires about five to six hours to complete, as it involves tightening the abdominal muscles and repositioning the buttocks.

How Much does a Body Lift Cost?
Because a body lift surgery is a highly customized procedure, its cost will vary based on your unique needs and aesthetic goals. Which type of body lift you choose, and how many parts of your body need a lift will be major factors in determining the price. During your consultation, we will examine you and determine your treatment plan and the exact cost.
Are there Any Risks?
A body lift carries the risks associated with any significant cosmetic surgery, including bleeding, infection, blood clots, swelling, pain, anesthesia risks, unfavorable results, and others, such as a loss of tissue, numbness, or other changes in skin sensation in the treated area or areas, the possibility of revisionary surgery, and unfavorable scarring. The most common risks associated with a body lift are typically fluid collection or problems with wound closure.
In the hands of an experienced, highly trained plastic surgeon such as Dr. Pozner, the chance of these types of risks or side effects greatly decreases.
