What is a body lift?
Body lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that is highly effective in correcting:

  • Lose, sagging or excess skin on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and arms.
  • Lower abdominal stretch marks
  • Small deposits of excess fat
  • Pubic Laxity
  • Lose or weakened abdominal muscles

Who is a good candidate?
An ideal candidate for body lift surgery is:

  • Healthy with no significant medical conditions
  • Not morbidly obese (some people that are overweight, but not obese, are still good candidates)
  • A Non-Smoker (smoking increases surgical risk and inhibits healthy healing

Body Lift- The Procedure
After administering general anesthesia, Dr. Stoker will perform the following steps during your body lift surgery:

  • A few incisions are made along the lower abdominal area and around the body to remove excess skin (length and pattern of the incision will depend on location of the excess skin and patient preference)
  • After the excess skin and fat is removed, the two incisions are pulled tight together and closed

Body Lift Recovery
As every patient is different, recovery times may vary. Typically body lift patients are able to return to work within two weeks. Even though you can return to work, vigorous physical activities should be avoided for at least a few weeks to not delay the recovery process.

You should also try to have someone that is able to help care for you for the first few days after surgery. You will also have several post-operative appointments with Dr. Stoker in order to remove sutures and asses your recovery process.

The Dr. Stoker Difference
Experience is everything when it comes to choosing a body lift surgeon. Dr. David Stoker has had a great deal of training from the finest academic institutions. The skill of your surgeon is by far the most important factor in determining a successful outcome. Not every surgeon is good at cosmetic surgery. It requires a synthesis of art and science – of technical prowess and artistic flair – to give body lift patients the beautiful results that Dr. Stoker is known for.
