Body Lift Procedure

Following significant weight loss, most people cannot enjoy their new body contours because of the excess skin left behind on areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, and back. For patients who are seeking a complete body contouring procedure, a body lift can help.

A body lift improves the shape and definition of the underlying tissue by removing excess skin and fat. Dr. Hadeed specializes in body contouring and body sculpting procedures. By customizing each procedure to the individual needs and desired results of each patient, Dr. Hadeed can sculpt the body and give his patients beautiful, long-lasting results.

What Can A Body Lift Do?

Tighten Loose Skin

After massive weight loss, leftover folds of loose skin are likely to take away from the results. A body lift can improve your appearance by removing and tightening the loose skin to reveal more shapely, defined contours.

Improve Contours

Many people who lose a significant amount of weight are often left with an unflattering shape and contours that lack in definition. A body lift can reveal more toned, slender contours by removing excess fat and tightening the remaining skin.

Sculpt The Midsection

The midsection can be the hardest area on the body to tone after massive weight loss. Body lift surgery tightens the underlying muscles while improving the shape and tone of the midsection.

Body lift surgery is an individualized procedure, so Dr. Hadeed will assess your goals and expectations to develop your surgical plan.

Have More Concerns About Body Lift?


Body lift surgery requires extensive incisions, so you should set aside time to allow for a full recovery. After your body lift surgery, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions to minimize swelling and aid in the healing process. Drains may be placed underneath the skin to collect any fluid or blood that accumulates after the procedure. Most patients can return to work after three weeks, but a full recovery generally takes six weeks. You should adhere to Dr. Hadeed’s post-operative instructions to ensure that complications do not arise during the recovery process.


You will have visible scarring after your body lift surgery. The scars can be hidden by underwear and will gradually lessen over time. It is important to take care of your scars by limiting tension on the incision areas and avoiding excessive sun exposure.


Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are common after body lift surgery. Compression garments and pain medication prescribed by Dr. Hadeed will help ease the discomfort.


Your results will become noticeable immediately after the surgery, but it may take up to two years for your results to fully develop.
