As implied by is name, a full body lift, also called a total body lift, refers to a series of surgical procedures that cosmetic surgeons use to reshape or contour their clients’ bodies. As of the date of this article, the average price for a body lift in the United States is approximately $30,000. Of course, the total cost will vary based on location and other factors. It is also worth mentioning that some health insurance companies may pay for some or all of the procedures involved. Prospective clients are advised to discuss this with their respective insurance providers prior to selecting a cosmetic surgeon.

How Does Lower Body Lift Surgery Work?

Typically, excess skin and fat are removed from the candidate's upper arms, breasts, abdomen, buttocks and thighs. Individuals will be given general or local anesthesia while they undergo a full body lift, which can take up to eight hours to complete. The full body lift is very popular among women who develop sagging breasts and abdominal “pooches” after giving birth. Additionally, individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight via bariatric surgery or through other means and are unable to rid themselves of sagging skin through diet and exercise also find the full body lift to be beneficial.

How long is the recovery time?

This question is difficult to answer because, an individual’s age, general health and pain threshold all play a part in healing. Additionally, due to the fact that multiple body parts are reshaped during a full body lift, recovery time is somewhat longer than what is usually required for a nose job or breast implants. On average, however, a full body lift candidate will often need at least two months to recuperate. During the first month, pain, redness and swelling will greatly subside, mobility will increase, and clients should be able to resume regular physical activity within three months.
