Body Lift

Body Lift Surgery in Atlanta, GA

A body lift is a contouring procedure that is performed around the entire torso. During surgery, the patient is physically turned so the entire circumference of the trunk is addressed. Multiple techniques are used to excise skin and fat, and to tighten the stomach muscles. They result in a toned physique with an enhancement of both the front and back of the torso.

Body Lift Vs. Tummy Tuck Vs. Liposuction: What is the Best Option For Me?

Dr. Crispin understands the frustration that many of his Metropolitan Atlanta patients share when substantial weight loss fails to achieve their aesthetic goals. It is very easy to be discouraged by the resistant bulges or excess skin that stubbornly remain. Dr. Crispin’s expertise in body contouring will make your desired outcome a true reflection of your weight loss, resulting in a slim profile.

A thorough consultation with Dr. Crispin is essential. First, the two of you will ascertain what areas need attention.

• Do you have small, residual pockets of fat that remain unresponsive to diet and exercise? Are these pockets restricted to one area, such as the thighs, abdomen, or neck?
If so, liposuction is the technique for localized fat removal.

• Is your goal to tone your abdomen by addressing issues of excess fat, saggy skin, and/ a weakened abdominal wall?
If so, a tummy tuck is the contouring procedure for you.

• Did you lose a highly significant amount of weight via bariatric surgery or diet and exercise? Is there an excess of hanging, dimpled skin on your entire lower torso, poor tissue elasticity, and damage to the stomach muscles?
Then a body lift is your best surgical option. It can allow correction by tightening the stomach while lifting the buttocks to a more prominent position with a fuller, contoured appearance.

What is the Right Incision For Me?

Body lifts require substantial incisions. Length and pattern vary based on the amount of excess skin and tissue removed.

Whenever possible, Dr. Crispin will locate the incisions in a natural skin crease, such as the groin. A common incision traverses the abdomen and is hidden by most underwear.

What Happens During Body Lift Surgery?

A body lift is a complex and extensive surgery best performed by an extremely experienced, board-certified surgeon, such as Dr. Crispin. His high level of expertise, advanced technical skill and expertise in body contouring will tailor a safe and successful outcome to each patient’s unique anatomical needs. This procedure is suitable for both men and women.

What Are My Recovery Times After Body Lift Surgery?

This procedure is a serious commitment to both surgical recovery and your overall well-being. Recovery is at home, with a limited routine and no lifting. During this time, it is recommended that someone stay with you to assist you in tasks of daily living. Most patients may return to work or their obligations in 2 weeks. Avoid all strenuous exercise or activity for the first 3 to 4 weeks.

Wear your suppression garment as directed by Dr. Crispin. This will assist with post-surgery swelling and bruising. In 6 weeks, the swelling should subside substantially. At the 3-month mark, approximately 95% of the swelling should be gone.

Most patients find their new, natural-looking figure and increased self-confidence worth the extended recovery period.

FAQs: Body Lift


1) What causes poor skin elasticity and resulting saggy, dimpled skin?

The primary contributors are extreme fluctuations in weight, bariatric surgery, aging, pregnancy, sun damage and genetic factors. An important fact to remember is that even at healthy, stable weights, most people have some type of cellulite (dimpling).


2) Is the scarring significant? Will the scars fade?

There are no invisible scars; however, Dr. Crispin will place the scars in natural creases that are hidden by underclothes. We will provide scar creams that optimize healing.


3) Will I lose weight after surgery?

A small loss of 2–3 pounds is usually experienced.

    I always wanted an hour-glass figure and now I have one thanks to Dr. Crispin. Dr. Crispin did my breasts and liposuction on my belly. He made me feel at ease to talk about all my concerns and he took the time to review all my options with me. The surgery and recovery were seamless thanks to him and his staff. I would, and have recommended him to many of my friends and have a growing list of the next things I would love him to work on ;).
    I love my new body. Thanks.
