Who is a Good Candidate?
A body lift can be beneficial if:
- You lost significant amounts of weight, but have fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise, such as love handles, bra bulge, and dimpled bulges on your flanks and hips.
- The skin on your upper legs, thighs, abdomen, waist, and/or hips is loose, providing unwanted reminders of all the weight that you lost.
- Due to aging or multiple pregnancies, you have lax stomach muscles, loose skin, and fat deposits in your midsection as well as other areas, such as your buttocks and back.

With a focus on achieving your personal goals and vision, Dr. Cutolo specializes in carefully customizing your body lift based on his in-depth consultation. From creating a treatment plan to tighten the skin and remove excess fat on your upper torso to re-contouring your midsection and thighs, he will listen to you to develop the right approach for you.
Dr. Cutolo performs the procedure under general anesthesia in a hospital setting to keep you comfortable throughout the surgery. After making a well-concealed incision, he repositions underlying tissue and removes excess skin and fat deposits. The surgery usually lasts anywhere from 3 to 7 hours, depending on the extent of correction needed.
Prior to your surgery, Dr. Cutolo will provide you with detailed instructions to facilitate your recovery and details about oral medication to manage any minor pain. He will apply bandages after the procedure to minimize swelling. You will return to his office a few days after your surgery, so that he can evaluate your healing.
