Body Lift Surgery

A body lift in New Jersey is a surgical procedure that is meant to address excess loose skin and pockets of excess stubborn fat in several areas at once. This comprehensive body-contouring option helps to improve the shape and tone of the body, creating a desirable silhouette. Most body lift patients undergo the procedure after experiencing dramatic weight loss from bariatric surgery. It can also be performed to address loose skin that forms as a result of childbirth or the aging process.

Which Areas Can a Body Lift Treat?

A body lift surgery is a highly customizable procedure that caters to the unique needs and goals of every individual. This combination surgery can remove excess skin and fat from the following regions:

  • Upper Arms
  • Breasts
  • Midsection
  • Hips
  • Lower Back
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Groin

Types of Body Lift Surgeries

The type of body lift you choose to undergo will depend on several factors, including the locations of the loose skin on your body and your overall aesthetic goals. The following are the three most common types of body lifts.

Lower Body Lift: A lower body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is one of the most popular types of body lifts. For many patients, most weight loss tends to occur in the buttocks, hips, and thighs. This can leave excess loose skin that hangs in large folds from the body, causing chafing and discomfort. A belt lipectomy removes this excess skin and creates flattering contours.

Mid-Body Lift: A mid-body lift (or torsoplasty) treats the abdomen and the regions addressed by a lower body lift. Using this procedure, the surgeon is capable of creating continuous smooth contours from the abdomen down to the thighs.

Total Body Lift: A total body lift might be ideal for you if your skin has lost its overall elasticity. This comprehensive method of rejuvenating your figure addresses all the areas of your body where stubborn fat pockets and surplus skin have accumulated. A smooth, trim, and lifted appearance can be achieved by contouring your arms, breasts, midsection, thighs, and buttocks.

The Body Lift Process

At the start of body lift surgery, general anesthesia is administered for patient comfort. Next, incisions are created. Body lift surgeries require extensive incisions, and the lengths and patterns of the incisions depend on the area and the amount of excess skin to be removed.

Once the excess skin is trimmed away with a scalpel and excess fat is removed with a cannula, underlying tissues may be tightened. After the remaining skin is tightened, the incisions are closed with sutures, skin adhesives, tapes, or clips.

Healing and Recovery

After a body lift, patients will need to rest and recover in the hospital for up to two days. After this time, they can return home.

Time off from work will be essential. Patients will notice bruising and swelling, which will fade in time. To aid in this process, it will be necessary to wear post-surgical elastic garments, which also encourage the skin to better conform to the body’s new contours.

Patients will need to avoid physically strenuous activities like sports and heavy exercise for several weeks in order to protect their healing incisions. Patients will return for a follow-up appointment to have sutures removed and to check on their healing process.

How Much Does Body Lift Surgery Cost?

The cost of body lift surgery depends on the exact procedures that the patient includes in their surgery. Additionally, factors like anesthesia fees, the techniques utilized, the amount of tissue removed, and the overall time needed to perform the surgery can all play a role in determining the final price.

Dr. Ganchi and his team are the best around! The facility is absolutely beautiful. During my consultation appointment, I immediately felt welcome and comfortable. My rhinoplasty surgery was more than successful and recovery was quick and painless! 1 year later and I'm still complimented on his beautiful work!

I just had my rhinoplasty surgery 1 week ago . Dr. Ganchi did an amazing job. Exactly what I was hoping for is what I received. I was unsure about the surgery and the process because I never had any before. The whole staff was great, patient, understanding and took great care of me. Dr. Ganchi has such a soft, gentle touch and takes his time. It shows with the results. Very minimal bruising first day and after that gone. Day by day, results are getting better and better. If you are feeling hesitant or have concerns let me ease your mind and tell you, they were great and you are in great hands.

Recently I had reconstructive nose surgery. The process was simple. So far I am 10 days into the recovery phase. It has not been scary or dreadful. Swelling around the eyes reduced after a few days! All that is left is keeping my nose protected! If you follow the instructions that Dr. Ganchi and his team lay out for you then it is smooth sailing!

I can’t recommend Dr. G’s office enough. He has changed my life for the better and I’m forever grateful.

Greetings all! I recently had labiaplasty done with Dr.Ganchi. I found Dr.Ganchi’s practice long before life gave me time to proceed with this procedure. Therefore I was very happy through each step of the way. After a wonderful consultation in which Dr.Ganchi thoroughly explained what I should expect as far as having the procedure done and the healing process etc. I too am thorough and was left without a question to ask. The front desk staff is fabulous. They were informative which made me feel comfortable and at ease. I even purchased a facial and they were sweet and helpful. The surgery room was airy and I loved my view. I was totally comfortable during the entire procedure. I went right in and in no time I was home. The healing process was just as I was told it would be so felt just fine all throughout. I went back to work on the seventh day after the procedure. I am proud of myself for achieving this and you should too. It’s a life changer in many ways, from clothes feeling comfortable to wiping differently after peeing. I will certainly continue seeing Dr.Ganchi for other procedures, he is really the best! Thank you Dr.Ganchi!!

Best decision I've ever made. Period. For most, plastic surgery decisions are life changing. Not only physically, but mentally as well. Going under the knife voluntarily is a wild experience because YOU choose the surgeon, and with the surgeon, their team. Let me just say real quick...Dr G., Laila, Karen, and Marcela are NJ's DREAM TEAM. I had a breast augmentation performed at the end of June 2021, and WOW. Worth. Every.Penny. It hasn't even been a month of recovery and my results are amazing. I feel so sexy, so confident, and so complete. Brings me tears knowing something I've wanted for ten years, is here, and I've been given exactly what I dreamt of. Dr.G is the REAL DEAL. They make me feel like family when I'm there and can't wait to continue seeing them... from my breasts to my routine botox.. there's nothing he can't do.

Dr Ganchi is a wonderful, caring doctor and a true artist. He put me back together again after four kids that did a number on my abdominals and I am so grateful to have found him. My results are unbelievable. His staff is also top notch and hold your hand through every step of the process. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Ganchi and his staff are the best of the best. They all made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Ganchi is so gentle, which made my recovery process painless and easy. I was worried about the recovery process for a rhinoplasty, but I would do it all over again if I had to. It was so much easier than I thought it was going to be all thanks to Dr. Ganchi. I will definitely be recommending Dr. Ganchi to everyone I know!!!
