About the One-Stage Body Lift

A one-stage body lift, often called a torsoplasty, is a body contouring procedure that combines many techniques to remove excess skin and fat, lifting and reshaping the mid-lower areas of the body that have been altered by age, massive weight loss, and pregnancy. One-stage body lift surgery focuses on the mid and the lower body, including the buttocks, stomach, flanks, low back, and thighs. According to the desired amount of skin removal, a circumferential 360 incision may be performed, which permits the highest amount of skin excision and lift. A lower body lift is a major procedure that can redefine a patient’s lower half of the body. Our highly talented surgeons, Drs. Erik Nuveen and Courtney Caplin have experience with skin removal surgeries. For many patients, this surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, OK allows men and women to not only achieve their weight loss goals but to complete their total transformation with a firmer figure that looks healthy and beautiful.

Surgical Technique

A lower body lift is sometimes called a belt lipectomy as the incision is made around the belt area surrounding the lower torso. The incision is extended to the buttocks and thighs. Loose, saggy skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be lifted and secured by sutures. Liposuction may be used if there’s excess fat. There are also cases when the fat harvested from liposuction is reinstated into the buttocks for an instant butt lift. These procedures may be combined in one session, or they may be staged depending on the patient’s circumstance.

During/After the Procedure

The lower body lift procedure is performed with general anesthesia and requires an overnight stay in a hospital or accredited surgical facility. Due to its nature, a spinal anesthesia may also be administered. The surgery lasts from 5 to 8 hours depending on the number of procedures performed. Patients who have a lower body lift will experience a slow recovery process. Aside from extensive incisions, the body and skin need adequate time to adjust to their new positions created by the surgery. Most patients will need 2-3 weeks before returning to a light routine. It can take up to a full year for the final results of this surgery to appear.
