Body Lift in Bangkok, Thailand
What is Body Lift?
Body lift in Thailand is one of the most common procedures used to improve your body’s appearance after weight loss surgery. This procedure also improves your shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess sagging fat and skin are removed and the procedure(s) can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface, which is commonly known as cellulite. It’s also long-lasting, if you keep your weight stable.
How is the Body Lift procedure performed?
Body lift in Thailand involves making an incision at the waist or slightly below it and removing excess skin and closing the skin under some tension. The incision length and pattern depends on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. Most commonly, a body lift treats both the abdomen and the back area and is therefore circumferential. The amount of time it takes to complete the surgery varies widely depending on your individual needs. Body lift procedures are performed under general anesthesia and requires 2 night stay in hospital.
Your surgeon may recommend a combination of liposuction and body lift procedures to achieve an improved overall contour. Support sutures deep within the skin help form your newly shaped contours.

What are the risks involved with a Body Lift?
Complications can mean a longer recuperation period for your body lift surgery. The two most common risks of this kind of surgery are small skin separations and the development of seromas, which is when fluid begins to build up under the surface of the skin. Small skin separations are referred to as “dehiscence” and they are a result of the areas of the skin where it is necessary to pull the skin tight to close it properly. Sometimes small skin separations involve the need to re-suture the spot of skin that has been operated on. Other complications of body lift surgery that happen less often includes bleeding, blood clots and the development of infections.
