Body lifts can be performed in two different ways, to treat either the upper or the lower body:

  • Lower body lift: The lower body lift is the most common type of body lift in my practice. It typically includes a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), thigh lift and buttocks lift performed at the same time. The incision is concealed around the waistline so that it’s not visible when wearing underwear or a bikini.
  • Upper body lift: For patients with severe skin laxity of the upper torso, an upper body lift may be the appropriate treatment. This typically includes a bra line back lift and upper abdominoplasty. The procedure is individualised for the particular patient.

Cosmetic Surgery Tip #37: Use homeopathic Arnica Montana

Untitled 2.006

Homeopathic Arnica Montana has been used for centuries to treat bruising and swelling from soft tissue injury.  Arnica, which is offered both topically and orally, is ideal for facial surgical procedures like a facelift, eyelid or nose surgery.  This remedy is also perfect for fillers and injectable procedures.

Body Lift & Breast Reduction with Liposuction of back rolls. DrTim demonstrates the combined procedures of Body Lift and Breast Reduction, often known as “Mommy Makeover”. A body lift is designed to tighten the skin of a patient all the way around their body. Patients who benefit from this surgery have typically lost a large amount of weight and have significant deformity from skin laxity. Breast reduction surgery is designed to make the breasts smaller and lighter to alleviate the problems of symptomatic macromastia. Improvements may be dramatic as evidenced by the before & after photos at 3 months.
