Body Lift

Drastic weight losses usually leave excess skin around the lower half of the body. A body lift combines different rhytidectomies such as abdominal wall lifting with a navel re-implantation, lifting of the buttocks, or thigh lifting. A circular scar remains, which can be covered by underpants.
