Bodylifting – So that You Feel Comfortable in Your Skin Again

The body lift reduces excess skin flaps on the abdomen, hips, buttocks and upper thighs and reshapes the body contour.

Massive excess skin on the lower half of the body can cause enormous physical strain. Bodylifting helps

  • patients with clinical obesity who lost weight due to a consistent change in lifestyle and nutritional habits or an operation.

Our surgical specialists at Rosenpark Clinic will provide you with expert advice and will develop an individual lift for you that corresponds to your requirements and wishes.

How does the procedure go?

The body lift as an all-around body skin tightening procedure consists of several body lifting operations. To this end, abdominal tightening, aninner thigh lift and abuttock lift are combined as needed.

Two surgical appointments are frequently necessary for the body lift. Usually, the sagging skin on the buttocks and the outer thighs is tightened first while the patient is in the ventral position, after which the skin flaps on the abdomen and the inner thighs are removed while the patient is in the dorsal position. All incisions and sutures are made so that the scars can be hidden by the bikini or bathing suit later on.

What sort of anesthesia is necessary?

The body lift is done under general anesthesia. For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

When will I be able to resume my regular activities?

We like to keep you at the clinic for at least two days after each surgery. You should take it easy for two weeks after the procedure – especially in order to prevent excessive stress on the sutures caused by friction.

You can find more information in our "Body shaping" information sheets, which you can request from us free of charge.

What else you can do

  • The success of the body lift depends on your behaviour after the operation. To protect the scars and prevent them from stretching, you should avoid physical exertion and refrain from major exertion for the first six weeks.
  • You should also wear a special compression girdle.
  • After the end of the external healing process after about six weeks, you can gradually start doing sports and gymnastics. You should resume muscle training after three months at the earliest.
