A body lift is a term used for a combination of multiple body contouring procedures. By combining treatments Dr. Correa is able to produce dramatic results with a single recovery. The procedure typically addresses common problem areas including the abdominal area, flanks, buttocks, and thighs. However, it can also be customized to meet your individual contouring goals.
Dr. Correa is a board-certified surgeon who routinely performs body lift procedures for both men and women. He uses the most advanced surgical techniques to maximize results with as little pain, scarring, or downtime as possible.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Body Lift?
Almost any patient who is bothered by the contours of their figure may be a good fit for the procedure. However, there are certain characteristics that can determine whether or not you’d benefit from a body lift. The ideal candidate for a body lift is someone who;
#1: Is In Otherwise Good Health
The best fit for body contouring procedures of any type is someone that is in otherwise good overall health. Patients should have no problems going under general anesthesia. Men and women who are non-smokers typically have the best outcome with surgical procedures. There is no ideal age for patients seeking body lift. However, those with a relatively good amount of skin elasticity will benefit best.
#2: Has Both Unwanted Fat & Excess Skin
A body lift is a revolutionary combination of procedures that safely and effectively address a variety of concerns. The procedure removes unwanted pockets of isolated fat while also trimming and redraping excess skin. Patients will also be happy to know that a body lift can help minimize the appearance of unwanted cellulite.

#3: Have Time for Adequate Recovery
While you’ll often only need to plan for a single recovery with a body lift, it is essential that you give your body enough time to heal afterward. Otherwise, you can prolong the recovery process and reduce the efficacy of your treatment. Dr. Correa will provide you with in-depth information on when you’ll be able to return to normal activities based on your individual procedures.
#4: Have Realistic Expectations
A body lift is not intended as a weight loss solution. Men and women should be close to their ideal weight and have little to no fluctuations before undergoing the procedure. Patients who would like to contour their final figure and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for them have the highest satisfaction rates.
#5: Is Willing to Maintain Lasting Results
Body lift procedures can help sculpt your desired figure but it cannot prevent you from gaining future weight. It’s up to you to maintain your newfound physique through healthy lifestyle choices like diet and exercise. Many patients who undergo body lift treatments find themselves more motivated and confident in keeping long-lasting results.
Is A Body Lift Right for You?
The best way to determine if a body lift is right for you is through an in-person evaluation with a skilled body contouring specialist. Dr. Correa works with each patient individually to identify their concerns and customize a treatment plan for an optimal outcome. Your body contouring treatment may be done as a standalone procedure or through a staged approach to maximize results.
Dr Correa and his staff were extremely welcoming and helpful throughout my process with them. They made everything a breeze for me and the price for my procedures in comparison to his competitors only helped with my decision.
