Body Lift – Full
At Y Plastic Surgery in Alpharetta, Roswell, and Woodstock, Georgia, body lift surgery after weight loss can be an ideal way to celebrate your success and complete your transformation. Almost everyone who loses a significant amount of weight needs plastic surgery to remove the loose, bulky skin that’s left behind. This skin can hide the newly slimmer contours of your body, and cause both physical and emotional discomfort.
Ideal Body Lift Candidates
Significant weight loss is an impressive accomplishment. Unfortunately, many of the men and women who undergo such a transformation end up with excess skin that can hang from their midsection and other areas of the body. A full body lift is a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Yalif that removes loose, excess skin so patients can enjoy their weight loss. This surgery can benefit your overall health and self-esteem, as well as transform your new physique and new life.
Candidates for a body lift must meet the following criteria:
- Have medical approval from their weight-loss surgery doctor
- Sustain their weight loss for at least a year
- Have lost significant weight
- Are in good health
- Are able to have general anesthesia for the surgery
- Don’t smoke
Patients considering plastic surgery after weight loss with Dr. Yalif typically have excess skin in most areas of the body, including on the face, arms, thighs, and breasts. Dr. Yalif performs separate skin removal and skin tightening procedures for these areas in stages. Some patients might be better candidates for a lower body lift. These choices can be discussed during your consultation.
Understanding Your Procedure
Body lift procedures can be extensive, so this surgery is performed at a local hospital or an accredited ambulatory surgical center with overnight stay capabilities. Depending on the patient’s health and other medical conditions, Dr. Yalif may also schedule separate surgeries 3 to 6 months apart to allow for healing, curtail excessive blood loss, and to limit the risk of infection.

In some cases, medical circumstances exist that may qualify for insurance coverage of at least part of the cost of patients’ procedures. Our staff attempts to verify that your insurance carrier has agreed to cover a portion of the surgery’s costs.
Once cleared by our medical team to perform regular physical activity, our body lift patients report having more mobility and range of motion when doing basic, everyday activities. With all of the extra skin eliminated, they also report feeling dramatically different in their clothes and exuding higher levels of confidence and self-esteem.
Recovery time for each patient is different and depends on the nature and extent of the surgery performed, as well as the combination of surgeries. We do our best to educate each patient on the procedures and how to care for their operative sites after surgery.
