What is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a procedure that removes fat and sagging skin to improve the tone and shape of the tissue that supports the skin. They aren’t intended for strictly fat removal, but rather to improve tissue elasticity. Poor tissue elasticity and skin sagging can be caused by various factors including aging, pregnancy, sun damage, weight fluctuations, and genetic factors.
