Full Body Lift - Circumferential Abdominoplasty

Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso – Full Body Lift

A full body lift is a combination of an upper and lower body lift, both of which are used to shape, tone, and trim the abdomen, buttocks, chest, back, thighs, and breasts.

Full body lift surgery helps treat and remove excess skin, cellulite, and other problem areas. The procedure is ideal for those who have lost a significant amount of weight, usually after bariatric surgery, or for mothers who wish to get their bodies back to the way they were before pregnancy. Candidates should have maintained their weight for at least three months, though longer is preferable. It's also advisable to wait at least a year after bariatric surgery to pursue the full body lift surgery.

What to Expect During & After Your Body Lift Surgery

A full body lift surgery takes approximately four to seven hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Jabor or Dr. Reynolds will begin with the first part of the full body lift – the lower body lift – creating a horizontal excision above the thighs and buttocks. Your doctor will then create a horizontal incision along the pubic area, removing excess tissue and fat, occasionally with the aid of liposuction. Your stomach muscles will also be tightened.

For the second part of the full body lift – the upper body lift surgery – Dr. Jabor or Dr. Reynolds will remove the skin around the breasts as well as eliminate the fat from the back and at the waist. As this is a major medical procedure, healing time is significant, often between four to eight weeks. An arm lift and/or upper thigh lift may also be considered after you've had time to heal sufficiently from your full body lift surgery.

To learn more about the full body lift surgery, we invite you to come to our office in El Paso for a consultation.
