Body Lift Surgery, also known as a belt lipectomy, or lower body lift, is a procedure done by expert plastic surgeons like Dr. Javad Sajan to help improve the shape of the mid- and lower body areas. A Seattle body lift procedure can help improve the tone of the underlying tissue and supportive fat layer of skin in the treatment areas. The results are a more sculpted shape, flatter abdomen, and smoother skin.

Reshaping Your Shape

Many things and life events can alter the shape of our bodies as we mature. While heredity, gravity, and the normal aging process affect how and where excess fat and cellulite form on our bodies, other factors also contribute to the process, including:

  • Pregnancy
  • Illness
  • Extreme weight loss
  • Significant/frequent weight fluctuation
  • Poor dietary habits
  • Inactive lifestyle

Any of those factors contribute to the unwanted fat and sagging skin that are particularly noticeable in the abdominal area, buttocks, groin, and thighs. Body lift surgery is not a weight loss program but it can eliminate excess skin and fat from problem areas for a more shapely figure. Visit Dr. Sajan for impressive results from a body lift Seattle patients have raved about.

Your Body Lift Surgery

Your body lift surgery will take place in our state-licensed surgery center. An overnight stay at a is not necessary. An anesthesiologist will administer general (deep sleep) anesthesia and you will be monitored at all times during the procedure and recovery for your comfort and safety.

Dr. Sajan will make incisions along specific body lines to access the target areas (like your waist, abdomen, groin, buttocks, and thighs). He will remove excess fat and skin and reposition and tighten tissues. Deep support sutures will be used in the underlying tissue areas to help with the formation of your new contours. The incisions may be closed using dissolvable sutures to ensure optimal healing of the wounds.

Dressings or bandages will be applied to the incision areas and Dr. Sajan may place thin tubes (on a temporary basis) under the skin to help drain excess fluid and blood. You need to wear a compression garment for several weeks following surgery to help reduce swelling.

The results of your body lift will be evident shortly after surgery. Fatigue, some swelling, bruising, and discomfort are typical post-surgery reactions. You also may notice some temporary numbness around the incision site. You will be given pain management medication to keep you more comfortable during recovery. While there will be scarring along the incision lines of the lower abdomen and buttocks, it gradually fades and is not significantly visible.

Although you may be able to resume normal activities within one to three weeks, strenuous activities should be avoided for up to four weeks. Dr. Sajan will provide detailed instructions for the proper care of your surgical sites, medications, and follow-up appointments. Carefully follow those instructions to optimize your recovery and results.

Ongoing Shaping

The results of your body lift procedure are permanent. And although you will notice favorable results almost immediately after surgery, final results continue to evolve over a longer period of time – generally one to two years. A body lift combined with healthy food, activity, and lifestyle choices can optimize your long-term results. Contact Dr. Sajan's office for a consultation and learn about the possibilities of reshaping your shape with a body lift.
