What are Body, Arm, & Thigh Lifts?

With aging or after losing a significant amount of weight, skin loses elasticity and can hang or droop. A body lift in Grand Rapids, Michigan, performed by the surgeons at Partners in Plastic Surgery of West Michigan can help improve body contours and reduce excess skin around the abdomen, hips, back, thighs and buttocks. Following body lift procedures, many patients report increased self-confidence and self-esteem. In addition, Dr. Dennis Hammond, Dr. Andrea Van Pelt, and Dr. Melissa Kath perform body contouring after weight loss.

Our plastic surgeons understand that every case is different and strive to give you exceptional personal care. We have extensive experience with body lifting, contouring and post weight loss procedures, have board-certified anesthesiologists on staff, and perform surgeries in our fully accredited facility. To learn more about a body lift or body contouring, request a consultation online or call us at (616) 464-4420.

Body, Arm & Thigh Lift Procedure

Body lifting and contouring can consist of several procedures including a bra-line back lift, a panniculectomy (to remove the apron of overhanging abdominal skin and fat), abdominoplasty, lower body lift, and/or a thigh or arm lift in Grand Rapids. Body lift and contouring surgery can improve self-confidence and can give skin a tightened and toned appearance. The length of the procedure depends on how much tissue needs to be removed. Most often, body lifting and contouring are comprised of several surgeries performed over a period of time. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss your cosmetic goals and will suggest the best options to give you optimal results. If you’re considering these procedures to address excess skin following a significant weight loss, view our Body Contouring After Weight Loss FAQ.
