Body Lift surgery, also known as Massive Weight Loss Surgery or post-bariatric body contouring, can indeed be a transformative procedure that can significantly impact a person’s life. It is particularly beneficial for individuals who have loose, saggy skin, uncomfortable skin folds (which can sometimes lead to infections), or those who have undergone significant weight loss through bariatric surgery. At Centre for Surgery, we specialise in performing Body Lift procedures after massive weight loss with utmost professionalism and safety. Our priority is to minimise risks and ensure that you achieve a happier and healthier body. To help you make an informed decision, we have provided answers to frequently asked questions about Body Lift surgery below.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU SHOULD HAVE A BODY LIFT?
Consider a body lift procedure if you have:
- Lost a significant amount of weight and maintained it.
- Undergone pregnancy or multiple pregnancies.
- Saggy skin on the upper arms, belly, hips, thighs, or buttocks.
- An “apron belly” causing discomfort or self-esteem issues.
- Excess skin that makes you unhappy with your body.
- Social or intimate activities that you avoid due to the presence of extra skin.
WHAT IS A FULL BODY LIFT CALLED?
A full-body lift, also known as body contouring surgery, encompasses a range of procedures that lift and tighten the entire body. It involves removing excess skin and, in some cases, fat deposits from various areas, including the arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks.
HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN YOU LOSE WITH A LOWER BODY LIFT?
