Many patients experience significant psychological disturbances due to body image issues and functional as well as hygienic disturbances due to the significant amount of excess skin throughout their body. This is especially true in cases with massive weight loss. Upper body lift surgery is a procedure that reshapes and re-contours the upper part of the body. The goal of the upper body lift is to remove excess skin and fat from the upper torso and arms. It also treats sagginess and fatty tissue and cellulite from these areas. After the procedure, patients benefit from a better and improved body shape and skin appearance.
