Questions and answers

What is a body lift?

Body lifting or circumferential body lifting is a plastic surgery performed to remove sagging flesh or loose skin and restore the aesthetic appearance of the different body zones (abdomen, waist, buttocks).

During the body lifting complex, plastic surgeons tighten the abdomen, eliminate abdominal separation (diastasis recti), perform thigh and lower back liposuction, carry out buttock lift and enlargement (with patient’s own tissues or implants).

What are the indications for body lift?

Both women and men are good candidates for body lifting if they have:

  • sagging skin after significant weight loss
  • reduced elasticity of abdomen muscles
  • flabby buttocks 
  • drooping skin of the abdomen and buttocks.
  • inelastic skin of the lower back and chest.

What are the contraindications?

Like any other plastic surgery, a body lift has some contraindications:

  • blood clotting problems
  • exacerbation of chronic diseases
  • heart failure
  • uncompensated type II diabetes
  • mental health disorders
  • obesity with a BMI of 35 and higher
  • autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis)
  • immunodeficiency
  • smoking. 

What are the types of body lifting ?

Body lift is a complex of the cosmetic procedures aimed at correcting one or several body areas (breast, waist, buttocks, etc.). According to the body zone need to be corrected, body plastic surgery includes such types of lifting procedures as:

The operations may be combined and performed during the same process. In some cases, plastic surgeons carry out body lift in tandem with liposuction to remove not only excess skin but also excess fat simultaneously.

What is preparation for the surgery?

Body lifting is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery requires the patient to get the necessary medical tests and examinations. Among them are:

  • complete blood count
  • coagulogram (blood clotting test)
  • immunoglobulins blood test 
  • biochemical profile
  • Rh factor blood test
  • urinalysis
  • electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • lower limbs venous ultrasonography
  • the chest X-ray
  • consultation with a therapist
  • consultation with a plastic surgeon.

What is the body lifting process?

Consultation with your plastic surgeon is required before body lifting. During the consultation, a plastic surgeon will evaluate your body shape, help you understand what result you can expect, take into account your preferences, and develop a complete surgery plan.

Body lift is a minimally invasive surgery and usually is performed by several steps:

  1. A plastic surgeon marks certain body zones that need to be corrected and review the surgery plan again to make sure you get the desired result after the procedure. 
  2. Body lifting is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the number of areas, the operation takes 4-6 hours
  3. A surgeon makes the incisions and separates the skin and the fat layer from the underlying tissues. 
  4. A plastic surgeon closes the incisions.

How does the body lift process change depending on the body area?

Performing abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), a cosmetic specialist removes excess skin and subcutaneous fat of the abdomen tightening muscles in the abdominal wall. To avoid possible complications and reduce fluid accumulation, a plastic surgeon measures the drainage. 

Excess skin in the thigh region (thigh lift) is removed by a longitudinal incision on the inner thigh or a horizontal incision on the outer thigh. The cuts are quite long, but they are usually not visible under clothing. During the operation, a surgeon can also perform a butt lift to correct the shape of the buttocks. 

Brachioplasty or arm lift is carried out to eliminate sagging skin and excess adipose tissue from the upper inner surface of the shoulder. Usually, the incision goes from the armpit to the elbow. If the patient has fat accumulation in the shoulder area without excess skin, plastic surgeons perform lipo to suck out excess fat.

How long is the recovery period after body lifting ?

Patients usually spend a night or two in the hospital after a body lift . The next day they start walking. To reduce swelling and discomfort, specialists recommend making compresses with cold water or ice. Drainage is removed a few days after the surgery.

A few days after the procedure, patients should stay at home. Taking a shower is possible only on the third day after body lifting . Physical activity is permitted for 6-8 weeks after the surgery. 

The terms of the rehabilitation period are different depending on the type of operation. After all body lift types, it is necessary to wear a compression garment for at least 4 weeks. 

The surgery is minimally invasive and does not cause severe pain. During the first days after the procedure, the patient may feel discomfort and tension. To eliminate this feeling, doctors prescribe postoperative treatment consisting mainly of painkillers and antibiotics.

During the postoperative period, the patient should remain under the supervision of a doctor. Follow-up examinations are necessary not only after the operation but also in the long term (one month, six months, and a year after the operation).

What are the body lift risks?

As any other plastic surgery, body lifting can lead to some complications. The most common among them are:

  • infection
  • seroma (fluid accumulation under the skin)
  • hematoma (bleeding)
  • scar contracture
  • implant displacement
  • blood clots
  • deep vein thrombosis
  • swelling
  • persistent pain.

To avoid complications after the body lift surgery, you must choose a highly-qualified plastic surgeon, pass medical tests and examinations, and accurately follow all the doctor’s recommendations.

I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.

Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

Hi, ich hatte eine Bruststraffung mit Implantaten und möchte meine Erfahrungen gerne teilen. Ich wurde vom Flughafen abgeholt und ins Hotel gefahren, was super geklappt hat!Da ich erst am nächsten Tag den Op Termin hatte, habe ich die erste Nacht im Hotel geschlafen und wurde dann morgens von meiner Dolmetscherin Nevin abgeholt und in die Klinik gebracht die wirklich nur zwei Minuten zu Fuß entfernt war! Dort angekommen wartete mein Op Arzt Dr. Ergin Er schon auf mich um die Op endgültig nach meinen Wünschen vorzuplanen ich fühlt mich sehr gut aufgehoben! Seine Art beruhigt einen also mich hat sie beruhigt. Alles abgesprochen ging es weiter zur Blutabnahme die Ärztin für die Narkose stellte mir einige Fragen ob ich Medikamente nehme oder an Krankheiten leite etc. halbe Stunde später war ich schon in der Op. 3 Stunden war ich in Narkose die üblichen Dinge die sich kaum vermeiden lassen zb Übelkeit oder schmerzen nach der Narkose sind auch mir passiert aber dem sollte man sich im Klaren sein wenn man plant eine Operation zu machen! Genauso wie man nicht kalt kochen kann kann man auch schmerzen nach einer Operation nicht vermeiden, lindern durch schmerztabletten. Man bekommt Antibiotika und Schmerzmittel. Ein Tag später konnte ich im Hotel schon schlafen und zwei Tage später wurden die drainagen gezogen (unangenehm aber auszuhalten, müssen sowieso raus). Das Hotel sehr schön sauber riecht so lecker irgendwie und die Hotelfachangestellten super nett und zuvorkommend. Sie wissen das man eine Operation hatte und sind sehr hilfsbereit. Essen top! Man geht dann ab und zu so wie es der Dr. veranlasst zu Kontrolle ansonsten you need to rest und am letzten (7.) Tag geht man zum verbandwechsel und wird dann zum Flughafen von den zuständigen gestellten Taxen gebracht auch nette Leute sehr hilfsbereit! Ich habe nichts negatives zu sagen weil nichts vorgefallen ist was mich verärgert oder enttäuscht hat! Wer sich hier behandeln lassen möchte macht alles richtig 👍 ich bin sehr zufrieden und froh das ich durch bin 😁 An die Raucher man soll nicht rauchen ja, aber wer raucht sollte sich vorher um Zigaretten kümmern es gibt keine Automaten oder Zigaretten zu kaufen in der Nähe! Ciao 👋

FORME Clinic

I was unsure as I booked over the phone and internet to have my eyelids tucked and my ears fixed back without seeing the place, if I had made the right decision but as soon as I arrived I felt happy that I had made the journey. Friendly and helpful staff. Super clean and modern. No fuss surgeon explained everything perfectly and carried out my work with a minimum of fuss. Its only 2 weeks ago but healing well and very satisfied with the results. Thank you. Fully recommended
