What is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a series of procedures that are performed in order to lift and tighten the skin after major weight loss. There are several types of body lifts, including:

  • Full Body Lift– Targets the entire body.
  • Lower Body Lift– Targets the lower body only.

When you meet with Dr. Julio Clavijo-Alvarez, you’ll have the opportunity to talk about your concerns and goals. He will then help you determine which body lift procedure will best meet your needs.

What is the Cost of a Body Lift?

For a circumferential body lift, the average cost ranges from $8,000 - $12,500. The exact cost of a body lift depends on the number of areas that are targeted in the procedure and the treatment method that is used. Due to the comprehensive nature of a full body lift, it is to be expected that this procedure will be more expensive than the lift of just one specific area.

At Gaia Plastic Surgery, we price our procedures on an individual basis based on your needs. We will calculate your lower body lift cost or full body lift cost at your consultation. We accept a wide range of payment options for your convenience, including financing through Dollar Bank and CareCredit®, to ensure all our procedures are financially accessible to patients.

A body lift is a great procedure for someone who has reached their goal weight, but they have excess, flabby skin that is in the way of enjoying their new look. The best way to determine your candidacy is by scheduling a consultation.


How Does the body Lift Procedure Work?

Our team, led by Dr. Julio Clavijo-Alvarez, designs each body lift procedure on a case-by-case basis to meet your individual needs. While some patients may require a more invasive body lift, others may benefit greatly from a non-invasive approach. During your consultation, we will discuss which methods are recommended for your body lift.


What Can I Expect During Recovery for a Body Lift?

Like with any procedure, recovery times will vary based on your procedure and how your body responds. On average, most patients require anywhere from four to six weeks of rest before they can return to normal activities. In the beginning of recovery, you may need to focus on your pain management. You may also need to wear a compression garment. It is also crucial that you follow your doctor’s specific recovery instructions.
