Body Lift

Many things change over time- and the overall tightness of the skin on your body is no exception. If you're concerned about excess skin after weight loss, a changed body after pregnancy or illness, or just looking to turn back the clock and feel more contoured, a body lift is the perfect solution.

What concerns can a body lift correct?

When performed by an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Pellegrino, a body lift will:
  • Correct any sagging skin on your body
  • Slim and contour your body's natural shape
  • Address all of your unique problem areas

An overview of a body lift

At your initial consultation, Dr. Pellegrino will discuss your expectations, perform a thorough evaluation of your body, and give you a comprehensive explanation on what procedure or combination of procedures will be best for you. He will carefully evaluate your unique concerns and desired outcome, and make recommendations to ensure that you are fully satisfied with the result of your body lift. Dr. Pellegrino's assessment may also include that the lift procedures in various areas of your body are often performed in stages, rather than all at once, to promote optimal healing.

What to expect during recovery

A body lift is a significant procedure, so allowing yourself ample time to recover is extremely important. As you recover, normal side effects consist of swelling, bruising, and pain in the area treated. Throughout the healing process, Dr. Pellegrino will advise you to avoid strenuous exercise or physical activity for several weeks after your procedure to promote optimal healing. On average, most individuals will be able to resume their normal daily activities within a few weeks, as long as those activities do not involve strenuous exercise. Dr. Pellegrino and his staff will offer a custom treatment plan and guidance for your recovery period throughout your post-operative follow-up appointments.
