Surgical Procedure

Body Lift

As we age and experience weight fluctuations or pregnancy, the tissues on our bodies can become loose and begin to sag. Skin often becomes lax and wrinkled, excess fat can gather in unattractive areas and muscles lose their defined tone. These issues are extremely common among patients who have lost weight and especially among those who have achieved significant weight loss after bariatric surgery. 

If you are dealing with these issues, it may be difficult to feel confident in your own skin. Finding clothing that fits you right and makes you feel comfortable physically and emotionally may be challenging. 

At Biolite Aesthetic Clinic of Dubai, we offer the following body lift surgeries to rejuvenate your physique. These plastic surgery procedures can provide you with more slender, sculpted body contours.

Arm Lift Surgery

Arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) creates smaller, more shapely upper arms from the underarm to the elbow. Loose skin may hang and create a “bat-wing” appearance that flaps with any sort of arm movement. Despite toning the arm muscles, stretched skin and excess fat can camouflage muscle definition. These issues are especially common if you have achieved significant weight loss. 

Brachioplasty addresses sagging tissues in your upper arms using an incision along the back or underside of the arm. Depending on the extent of your tissue laxity, your incision may be just a few inches long, or it may run all the way down to your elbow and/or extend up into your armpit. The underlying tissues are tightened against your arm muscles and fat is removed. Your skin is then draped over the new arm contours, and excess skin is removed.

What Can an Arm Lift Address?

  • Drooping excess arm skin
  • Loose underlying tissues that hang off your arms
  • Stubborn fat deposits in your upper arms

Thigh Lift Surgery

Thigh lift surgery (thighplasty) can provide you with more firm and toned inner and outer thighs. Poor skin elasticity on the thighs can develop with age or weight fluctuations, and loose skin and flabby tissue frequently develops on the inner thighs. Excess fat may gather on the outsides of the thighs and create the dreaded “saddlebags” due to weight gain or hereditary factors. A thigh lift procedure can achieve more sculpted thighs that are in better proportion with the rest of your body.

For an inner thighplasty, an incision is created along the groin that extends either around to the backside of the thigh or down along the inner thigh. If you need minimal thigh lifting and tightening, you may be able to have the procedure done through the groin incision only. An outer thighplasty uses an incision from the groin that extends up and around the hips. Through these incisions, the tissues of your thighs can be lifted and tightened and excess skin is removed. 

What Can a Thigh Lift Address?

  • Loose skin that may hang from your thighs
  • Flabby tissues on your thighs 
  • Excess fat on your inner or outer thighs

Body Lift Surgery

Body lift surgery addresses sagging around your entire midsection. The abdomen is one of the most common areas affected by weight gain and pregnancy, and many people experience loose skin and muscles in the area. Fat often accumulates on the hips, flanks (“love handles”) and lower back, stretching the skin in these areas. After weight loss or delivering your baby, your tissues in these areas may remain permanently loose and even hang from your waist.

Most people are familiar with tummy tuck surgery that tightens and firms the abdomen. A body lift is similar, but it also contours the sides and back of the midsection. Your surgeon will make an incision along your lower abdomen that extends around the hips and onto your lower back. They will then tighten the tissues and remove loose skin to lift your butt and pubic area and smooth the skin on your back, hips and abdominal area. Your abdominal muscles can also be tightened if needed to correct muscle separation (diastasis recti).

What Can a Body Lift Address?

  • Stretched skin on your abdomen, hips and back 
  • Sagging tissues around the circumference of your body
  • Excess fat in your midsection
