People desiring a body lift, frequently do it to improve appearance.  They may have loose, sagging skin of the abdomen, back, thighs, or buttocks. They may be prone to skin irritation and rashes, and have problems with intimacy. A body lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat. Excess sagging skin and fat are removed, and dimpled, irregular skin surface is also improved. A body lift may include the abdominal area extending around the sides and the lower back, the buttocks, the pubic area, and the inner, outer or posterior thighs. Liposuction may also be used in conjunction with these procedures to optimize the result.
