Tucson Body Lift
Improve Your Shape & Tone
A body lift, also referred to as a belt lift or a belt lipectomy, is a surgical procedure that targets and removes loose, hanging skin from the body. This cosmetic procedure is effective for clients who have undergone significant weight loss but continue to have unwanted excess skin in certain areas of the body. Dr. Craig Hurst is fellowship trained and has over 14 years of experience in plastic surgery. At Hurst Plastic Surgery, in Tucson, he offers body lift surgery, to provide you with a better proportioned appearance and more contoured figure.
A body lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to improve the look of sagging skin by altering the underlying tissue. During the procedure, excess skin is removed from around the body. A belt lipectomy involves incisions that are made in the location where the skin is to be removed. Fortunately, they can usually be strategically placed so as to be less noticeable. This procedure can also improve skin surface by removing dimpled or irregular segments.
Body lifts target:
Significant fluctuations in weight, sun damage, pregnancy, and a genetic predisposition to poor tissue elasticity are all predisposing factors for sagging skin in the area of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs, especially around the midsection. A body lift is an effective solution to tighten and improve the appearance of the redundant skin in these locations.
A body lift does NOT remove excess fat. If your skin has good elasticity and you simply wish to remove pockets of fat, liposuction may be a preferable option should you have good skin elasticity and simply wish to remove focal pockets of fat. However, the two procedures may be recommended in conjunction with each other in order to achieve optimal aesthetic results*.
- Significant amount of loose skin in one or more parts of the body
- Non smoker
- Committed to a healthy lifestyle
