Beverly Hills Body Lift uses a circumferential torso incision to remove the hanging skin of the mid torso, including that of the abdomen, flanks, and the lower back, and thus lift up the lower body.


Body Lift is a complicated procedure that is best performed by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who specialize in body contouring after massive weight loss. This Body Contouring procedure needs to be performed in a Surgical Facility which is equipped for the intra-operative and post-operative necessities of a major abdominal surgery.
