It usually involves various combinations of liposuction, tummy tuck, thigh lift, arm lift, buttock lift, breast lift, breast reduction or gynecomastia (male breast reduction). You and Dr. Chhatre will discuss your personal needs and expectations to determine which combination of procedures will restore a fitter, more youthful appearance to your body while giving you a boost in self-esteem and confidence.

Is a Body Lift Right for You?
Anyone who has undergone massive weight loss or is at their most advantageous weight loss goal is a good candidate for a body lift. Dr. Chhatre will thoroughly explain the body lift and recommend which procedures will help you achieve the results you want. The individual body contouring procedures will be performed in stages because your body will need time to recover. Many of these procedures result in surgical scars, which will be strategically placed to minimize their visibility. Some patients report that scars begin to look worse over the first couple of weeks following the surgery. In some cases, it can take up to 18 months for scars to fully flatten and tighten up. The scars will never disappear, but your surgeon’s artful touch and your choice of wardrobe can make them all but invisible.
Risks of Body Lift Surgery
Body lift surgery is a safe procedure when performed by an experienced, qualified surgeon. However, as with any surgical procedure, there is a degree of risk involved. Possible complications include seromas, or fluid build-up under the surface of the skin, as well as blood clots and infection.
Select a Qualified Surgeon
Selecting a qualified, reputable surgeon is the best way a patient can make their body lift surgery a success free of complications. Dr. Matt Chhatre holds several honored distinctions, and has a long history of satisfied patients. He is a certified plastic surgeon, a clinical assistant professor of surgery at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, a fellow at the American College of Surgeons, and a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
