Body Lift Surgery in Metropolitan New York

Benefits of Body Contouring Surgery for Manhattan and NYC Residents

Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh specializes in body lift surgery, which can help NYC men and women remove excess sagging skin and redefine their shape following bariatric surgery or major weight loss. It can also effectively eliminate loose skin that develops after pregnancy or because of hereditary factors.

When we gain a large amount of weight, our skin and muscle tissues must stretch to accommodate the extra weight. Once we lose it, either through diet and exercise or weight-loss surgery, our skin generally does not return to its original state. Instead, it remains stretched and hangs loosely on the body, causing some to feel self-conscious and defeated after working hard to reach their weight-loss goal. Dr. Alizadeh offers body lift surgery to help patients achieve a firmer, more toned body aesthetic and renewed pride and self-confidence in their weight-loss achievement.

What You Should Know About Body Lift Surgery

Body lift surgery can treat isolated problem areas or entire regions of the body such as the torso, thighs, or buttocks. Body lift procedures tighten tissues in the hips, groin, buttocks, and thighs, minimizing excess drooping skin. Patients can expect incisions that correspond to the area being treated, and the incision location is designed so that the scar can be easily concealed in natural creases or under clothing.

  • Treating sagging arms, breasts, face, and neck requires minimally visible incisions that lift and support the skin while adding proper volume and shape for lasting results.
  • Surgery of the abdomen, hips, outer thighs and back requires a circumferential, hip-level incision around the entire body.
  • Treatment of the inner thigh typically requires an incision in the groin area, which may also extend along the inside of the leg.

What to Expect During Body Lift Surgery and Recovery

Body lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. The length of the surgery depends on the number of treatment areas and the amount of excess tissue or fat to remove. Dr. Alizadeh will explain in detail every step of your procedure and recovery so that you are well informed prior to surgery and well equipped for a safe, uneventful recovery.
