Liposuction in Body Lifting Surgery
Thank you for your question.
Yes, liposuction can be used as a very important tool during the body lifting procedure to assist with body contouring and helping to achieve the final result.
Body lift and liposuction
I do not routinely combine liposuction of undermined regions at the same time as a body lift. It increases the seroma rate.

Body Lift and Liposuction
During a Lower body lift, liposuction is used for two reasons. One is to remove the unwanted deposits of certain areas such as flanks or outer thighs. This can really help in establishing a proper contour. Another reason that liposuction can be used in lower body lifts is to loosen the tissue of the thighs. Liposuction in this scenario can really help the superior lift of the thighs.
Bodylift is a powerful procedure at producing great shape.
Generally, liposuction is not considered part of a bodylift, however, we often combine a bodylift with liposuction of other parts of the body to give a better overall result and total bldy contour. A bodylift addresses the excess skin and fat around the midportion of the torso. It is a wonderful procedure that is extremely powerful at producing an excellent body shape.
Liposuction adds further refinement to body lift procedures
.Body lift surgery is generally recommend for individuals with skin laxity, most frequently fol owing massive weight loss. Liposuction can be added to body lift procedures to further define your shape. A lower body lift combines an abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) with an outer thigh and buttock lift. Liposuction can be included to improve the shape of the waistline, as well as the outer thighs. An upper body lift corrects the breasts(or chest) as well as the lateral chest folds and can be combined with Liposuction. For cases which require high volume liposuction, I generally recommend a two staged approach with liposuction performed at the initial stage followed 3 months later by the body lift procedure. Each case is individualized to meet your specific needs.I would recommend consulting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area. Best Regards, Andrew Lyos, MD, FACS Houston TX 713 799 8989.
Body Lift & Liposuction
I tend to perform little, if any, liposuction at the time of a body lift. The body lift requires a circumferential incision resulting in the interruption of a great deal of the normal blood supply. In addition, a body lift is a very time-consuming procedure with which I usually perform no additional procedures which might increase operative risks.
After massive weight loss, ther is excess skin and sometimes, more often than you think, there is still some fat pockets that need liposuction. If these pockets are within the areas of body lift then the liposuction is included.
Discuss this with your surgeon ahead of time, agree on exactly what is being done.
The liposuction will give a better result.
Lower Body LIft and Liposuction
The lower body lift has been designed to address excess skin of the back, flanks and abdomen. Excess skin is removed circumferentially and in the process, the buttocks are lifted in an upward direction.
Although liposuction isn't part of the lower body lift, it's often combined with the procedure. Liposuction is used to refine and improve contour. It's important to realize that every patient is unique and for this reason, liposuction is often used to tailor the procedure to meet the patient's specific aesthetic goals.
Not typically part of the lift, but could be combined with the lift...
