what is a One-Stage Body Lift?

What Are the Benefits of a One-Stage Body Lift?
A one-stage body lift can be used to safely and effectively tighten the skin on a patient's lower body. This not only provides a smooth contour but removes lax and droopy skin from the area. After the surgery, patients will notice significant results, including a tighter tummy and often a revitalized sense of self-confidence.
What Techniques are used for a one-stage body lift?
A lower body lift, or belt lipectomy, is an incision is made around the belt area surrounding the lower torso extending to the buttocks and thighs. Loose, saggy skin is trimmed away and the remaining skin is lifted. Liposuction may be used to remove excess fat which can then be reinstated into the buttocks for an instant butt lift. These procedures may be completed in one session or spread out over multiple sessions, depending on the patient’s health and aesthetic needs.
what can i expect during a one-stage body lift?
A lower body lift surgery lasts from 5 – 8 hours, depending on the number of procedures needed. The procedure is performed with general anesthesia and requires an overnight stay in a hospital or accredited surgical facility. Depending on the patient’s needs, spinal anesthesia may also be administered to avoid possible pain or discomfort.
How Long Is Recovery From A One-Stage Body Lift?
Because of the more extensive nature of the incisions used in a one-stage body lift, the body and skin will need a longer time to adjust to their new positions. Most patients will need 3 – 6 weeks of restricted activity before returning to a lighter normal routine. Any swelling should lessen after a few weeks, usually normalizing after 1 – 2 months. The full results and effects of a one-stage body lift are usually seen after about a year.
