A Customized Full Body Lift Can Give You a Slimmer, More Defined Figure


If you have lost a substantial amount of weight but you suffer from sagging, excess skin, you may feel that your appearance fails to reflect your new healthy lifestyle. A full body lift at our Nova Scotia practice can refine your entire figure by combining various body contouring procedures. At The Landings Surgical Center, Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau tailor all of our procedures to be completely personalized. After a body lift, you could enjoy increased physical comfort, an improved appearance, and a greater sense of self-confidence.

Should You Consider a Full Body Lift?

If you recently lost a large amount of weight, excess skin may obscure your newly slimmed figure. If so, a full body lift may be right for you. Before recommending this treatment, Dr. Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Boileau will conduct a complete exam to determine your candidacy. Among other things, your doctor will consider:

  • Current weight: To undergo a full body lift, you should be at a healthy weight, and you should not be planning to lose more weight since this could create more sagging skin in the future.
  • Dedication to a healthy lifestyle: Similarly, you must be committed to maintaining your weight through proper diet and exercise.
  • Health history: To tolerate anesthesia and extensive cosmetic surgery, you should have generally good physical health. If you suffer from a blood disorder or autoimmune disease, this could affect your candidacy.
To protect your health and reduce discomfort, our doctors typically perform body lifts in stages.

The Full Body Lift Procedure 

A full body lift will combine several body contouring procedures, and each body lift is unique to each patient. At your consultation, Dr. Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Boileau will explain your treatment options. Together, you will create a surgical plan that suits your particular needs and concerns. In some cases, you may address only your lower body, but you could also choose to treat your entire figure. Your body lift could include any of the following treatments:

Aftercare and Recovery

Body lifts are extensive, so you need to set aside a substantial amount of time for your recovery. Your exact timeline will vary, depending on the number of procedures you undergo, the size of your incisions, and the way that your body responds. You may need to take between two weeks and two months off from work. While you are recovering, you should wear compression bandages and maintain your follow-up appointments at our office. Dr. Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Boileau will provide approval for when you can return to work and your regular exercise routine.

Lasting Benefits of a Full Body Lift

Although a body lift can involve an extended recovery time, most patients are willing to wait because the treatment has such tremendous benefits. A body lift can thoroughly transform your figure, helping you look younger and slimmer than you have in years. The effects can be particularly rewarding if you have worked hard to lose a large amount of weight. Following treatment, your weight loss will be much more apparent. In some cases, a full body lift can also improve your physical well-being. For example, severely sagging skin can cause chafing, and it can limit your physical activities. Finally, a full body lift can greatly improve your self-esteem. After treatment, you may be more willing to try new activities, engage in different social settings, and show off your slimmer body.
