A body lift with Dr. Larson is designed to sculpt a smooth body contour by removing excess skin, fat and tissue. It is very common following substantial weight loss – often after bariatric surgery.
After losing a lot of weight, it is common to experience lingering aesthetic challenges – including sagging skin and stubborn pockets of fat.
In addition to being a source of great self-consciousness, these effects can make it difficult to enjoy your new body and find clothes that fit. When this occurs, a custom lift with Dr. Larson can tighten lax skin, remove unwanted fat, and reveal a fit physique that you can’t wait to show off.

The lower body lift is one of our most popular procedures because it addresses a very common problem area – the buttocks, hips and thighs. In addition to removing excess skin, the procedure can also elevate the buttocks and sculpt a beautiful lower body shape.
It requires three incisions: across the waistline, across the lower abdomen and down the inner thighs. Of all the body lift procedures, it is associated with the shortest recovery time of about two to three weeks.
The mid body lift addresses the hips, thighs, buttocks and abdominal area. It is a popular option because it produces a smooth and continuous contour from the belly down to the thighs.
This approach requires the same incisions used during a lower body lift. The main difference is that Dr. Larson will also tighten the abdominal muscles during the procedure. The recovery time is about three to four weeks for most patients
The total body lift is our most comprehensive and intensive lift procedure. It targets the hips, buttocks, thighs, abdomen, arms and chest/breasts. The incisions required include those that are associated with a lower and mid body lift, along with openings along the arms and chest.
The surgery can take between four and seven hours to complete and requires about six weeks of recovery time.
