If you have shed significant weight but you still have a hard time finding clothes that fit or struggle with uncomfortable health concerns related to sagging skin, your confidence may still be waiting to shine through. Dr. Tutino will walk you through the body lift surgery procedure step by step so you can look forward to the next stage of your journey.

What is a body lift?

those who struggle with significant skin laxity in multiple areas may plan a transformational full-body lift or total body lift surgery; this is a highly customizable plastic surgery procedure that Dr. Tutino can adjust according to your unique needs and goals. Dr. Tutino is a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon in Ontario with extensive experience performing body contouring and body lift surgeries.

A body lift can improve the positioning and contour of tissue beneath the skin. It also allows for the removal of sagging, overhanging skin to restore a tighter, smoother figure.

Your body lift may include the following areas:

  • Abdominal area – A full or extended tummy tuck or circumferential lift will reduce skin excess in the abdomen and back
  • Buttocks
  • Thigh - the inner, outer, or posterior thighs may be treated 

Your personalized skin tightening and lifting surgery may also include a breast lift, arm lift , thigh lift and more. 

FAQ - top Body Lift Surgery questions

How much weight can I lose with body surgery?

It doesn’t matter which procedure you go for; it is not meant to be a weight loss surgery. But since Body Lift surgery removes excess skin and some fat deposits, you may lose a little weight. If you want a full-body lift, Dr. Tutino will perform a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and buttock lift; this might remove as much as 20 pounds. But it is meant for someone who has a lot of excess skin.

Will health insurance cover a lift procedure?

Typically, surgeries that are meant for enhancement are not covered by insurance. But it is possible in some cases. For example, if there is much skin left after massive weight loss, it could cause infections. That is when a health insurer might approve it. 

Are there different types of thigh lifts?

Yes, there are multiple types of thigh lift available. Dr. Tutino will explain them all to you and even recommend which one or more you might want. The inner thigh lift raises the sagging skin on the insides of your upper legs. Then there is the outer thigh lift. It raises and pulls the outer side of the thigh. Dr. Tutino will discuss it all with you during the initial consultation and make sure you know what to expect and achieve.

Are there any lift procedures that do not involve extensive scarring?

There are scars involved with all lift procedures as almost all lift procedures need long incisions. If we talk about an inner thigh lift, it might give you a scar that comes down to your knee. If you go for a full-body lift, it will give you a scar that goes around your body. But since Dr. Tutino is one of the experts in microsurgery, he makes sure that he positions the scars so that they are well hidden.

How much will it cost?

The cost depends on various factors. The more area you cover on the body, the more the price increases. It also includes the surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist, compression garments, and follow-up care. If Dr. Tutino decides to keep you overnight for monitoring, you could also have the additional charges for overnight care. Another factor is the time required for the procedures and whether it’s a one-day procedure or more.

Are there any risks or complications?

As with all surgical procedures, plastic surgery procedures also have certain risks and complications. It is increased if you are having a body contouring procedure after massive weight loss. Some risks include fluid accumulation, skin loss, infection, bleeding, and more. The number of complications depends on factors like the patient’s health, weight loss, and more. That is why so many patients trust Dr. Tutino. He has the experience, the skills, and the state-of-the-art facility to make your journey as comfortable and risk-free as possible.

How long does it take to recover from a full-body lift?

Usually, after a body surgery, you will be able to get back to your workplace or your routine in about two weeks. But this also depends on the number of surgeries that you have had. In the beginning, right after the surgery, Dr. Tutino will restrict all heavy and strenuous activities for the first three to four weeks. After that, during your follow-up sessions, he will allow you to get back to your routine gradually.

Does lower body lift include thighs?

Yes, the lower body lift includes the thighs. It consists of a tummy tuck that goes down to your hips and back. The procedure will lift your pubic area, buttocks, outer thighs and take care of any extra skin around your abdomen and back.

Body Contouring: Is It For You?

Not everybody is a good patient for a body contouring procedure. Also, experts like Dr. Tutino and more say that not everybody needs body-contouring surgery. The factors that affect your body-contouring procedure are age, genetics, level of sun exposure, and the weight distribution around the body.

Most of the patients who have a body-contouring surgery are at least above 40. That is when your skin loses some or all of its elasticity. Another thing that affects your decision to have body-contouring surgery is the amount of weight loss and where you have lost it. For example, if you have lost 50 pounds of weight around your midsection, much loose skin will be left in the area. But if you have lost around 100 pounds, but it is from all over your body, that will not have the same effect on the skin.

benefit 2 of 3 "full body contours"

body lift - plastic surgery by dr. tutino

People sometimes confuse body lift surgery for weight loss surgery. It is not intended to remove fat specifically or to treat obesity.

liposuction can be used in conjunction with skin removal; however, it targets smaller, localized pockets of subcutaneous fat. The amount of fat loss through body lift surgery is not typically significant, but removing a large amount of excess skin can reduce a person’s weight slightly and certainly improves full body contours and reduces clothing sizes in many cases.

Who Can Get A Body Lift Surgery?

If you have recently slimmed down and want to enjoy a slimmer, smoother contour without embarrassing skin rolls, consider a body lift surgery.

Because the combination of lifting procedures can amount to an extensive operation and recovery, there are several health factors your surgeon will discuss with you before planning.  If you can say “yes” to the following points, you might be a good candidate for a body lift surgery:

  • You’ve lost between 30 and 50 percent of your peak weight
  • If you suffer from sagging skin around your abdomen
  • Your weight should be constant. If it keeps on changing, it might not be ideal timing to plan a body lift
  • If you are in good overall health
  • If you don’t plan on becoming pregnant after abdominoplasty surgery
  • If you are committed to maintaining a good diet and exercise regimen
  • If you do not smoke or drink excessively
  • If you are in good mental and psychological health

Dr. Tutino will review your entire case, including your medical factors and any medication or supplements you may take. He will also perform a physical examination so that you can explain your areas of concern, and he’ll counsel you about realistic options you have.

Dr. Tutino will only concentrate on the problematic areas with the least invasive methods to deliver desired results.

How much does a body lift cost?

A body lift surgery is a highly customizable procedure. The exact methods and cost depend on various factors and preferences. 


1) The Type of Body You Want
After consultation, you might discover you don’t need full-body lift surgery. Dr. Tutino will only concentrate on the problematic areas with the least invasive methods to deliver desired results. Sometimes that means zeroing in on just the tummy, the thighs, breasts, and so on. A body lift will address many of these areas together, which increases the combined cost. 

2) Number of Procedures At Once
After consultation, you might discover you don’t need full-body lift surgery. Dr. Tutino will only concentrate on the problematic areas with the least invasive methods to deliver desired results. Sometimes that means zeroing in on just the tummy, the thighs, breasts, and so on. A body lift will address many of these areas together, which increases the combined cost. 

3) Amount of Fat
If you add liposuction to your procedures, the time required and related fees will increase. 

4) Testing and Examination
To ensure safety, reduce risks and improve overall results, Dr. Tutino may create an individualized surgical plan for you that requires additional diagnostic testing and examination.

5) Other Procedures
Many people appreciate the convenience of multiple procedures performed together. Benefits may include having a single recovery period and fewer appointments; however, each added body treatment area will affect the total of your body lift surgery cost.

The Consultation

Dr. Tutino is a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon. You can rest assured that all your questions and concerns will be discussed during your consultation. You are encouraged to ask about:

  • Help to define your surgical goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies, and previous medical treatments
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drug use
  • Previous surgeries
  • Your lifestyle, work requirements and planning for optimal recovery 

Dr. Tutino will:

  • Take photographs for your medical records
  • Discuss your body lift options
  • Recommend a course of treatment or alternatives
  • Discuss likely outcomes of body lift surgery and any risks or potential complications

Customized Treatment Plans

Once you’ve shared your concerns and goals, Dr. Tutino will create a personalized treatment plan for your body lift surgery. Every patient is unique, and every patient has different needs and wants. He will sit with you and discuss your possible action plans to understand the surgery and the expected outcomes. 

How Should You Prepare For Body Lift Surgery?

Many people wish to plan and prepare in any way they can for this significant but exciting life change. You can take numerous steps to ensure your surgery goes according to plan and you have a pleasant, satisfying experience from start to finish.

The first thing you can do beginning right away is maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Whether you have been approved for a body lift surgery or not, your nutrition and fitness levels can directly affect how you look and feel. Maintaining stable body weight is essential before body lift surgery.

If you smoke, right now would be a good time to stop. Not only does it harm your overall health, but plastic surgeons may also decline to perform procedures on patients who smoke. That’s because smoking reduces your body’s ability to heal well. Smokers experienced decreased blood flow in their skin, so that that complication risks can increase.

Be sure to discuss all medications, vitamins or supplements you take with Dr. Tutino. Some of those may interfere with surgical safety and recovery.

Take care to avoid skin infections and maintain vigilant hygiene. Excessive skin may retain harmful bacteria, so make sure you keep it healthy and clean.
