The only effective treatment of loose, saggy skin and cellulite of the body is to remove the excess skin and underlying fat with a body lift, tightening the skin and fat to produce youthful skin tone and natural contours. Body lifts are “facelifts” for the body. Body lifts should use bikini line scar seams to remove the excess tissue. Liposuction and body lifts are often combined to treat both familial fat deposits and skin laxity. This procedure will lift the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, waist and hips at one time.
