Body Lift in Chicago and Arlington Heights, IL

Many people think that if you exercise and eat healthy your body will be slim and toned. While this may work for some, it is not often the case. There are many factors that can contribute to stubborn excess fat and sagging, skin on the body, both of which are resistant to diet and exercise. The body lift procedure can help. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis offers this effective procedure to residents of Chicago, Arlington Heights, and the surrounding Illinois communities.

What is a Body Lift?

The body lift is a cosmetic surgery, which results in a firmer, more toned appearance of specific areas. The body lift procedure works by removing excess skin in order to achieve the following:

  • Toned upper arms
  • Toned, slimmer thighs
  • Slimmer abdominal area and hips
  • More contour to the groin area
  • Lifted and shaped buttocks

By removing excess fat and skin and pulling the remaining skin tight, you can achieve tremendous results. A body lift can result in a slimmer, more youthful body shape with a flattering silhouette.

In some cases, Dr. Kotis may recommend the body lift procedure in conjunction with another cosmetic surgery. For some, a body lift itself is enough to remove excess fat and rid the body of unsightly tissue, such as cellulite. For others, Dr. Kotis may recommend combining the procedure with liposuction for maximum results.

Who is a Candidate for a Body Lift?

The body lift procedure has major benefits, but it is not right for everyone. The procedure will not be most effective for individuals whose weight fluctuates or who may become pregnant. A body lift yields maximum benefits for individuals who are generally healthy, not significantly overweight and are at a stable weight and do not smoke. If the contours of your body bother you, you may want to consider a body lift, as it is most effective at achieving an improved silhouette.

What Results Can I Expect from a Body Lift?

The body lift procedure can provide all over improvement or target more specific areas. Areas targeted by the procedure will be tightened, toned and lifted. Dr. Kotis will remove all excess skin and pockets of fat during the procedure to create an exquisite slimming effect. The results of the procedure are visible immediately, but full results will continue to develop for months. Once the results are at a maximum, they are long lasting. For as long as you maintain your current weight, the results of the body lift procedure should be visible. There is some scarring from the incisions made during a body lift, but they will continue to heal with time.
