Excess fat and sagging skin can affect the self-esteem of many adults. Body lifts can be performed in many areas including:
- The abdomen, often extending to the flanks
- The breasts
- The arms
- The back
- The buttocks
- The thigh
Body lift candidates include individuals who do not have medical conditions that would impair healing and have significant soft tissue looseness in one or many areas of the body. They also have a positive outlook and realistic goals they wish to achieve, do not smoke, and are committed to leading healthy lifestyles including exercising and nutritious diets. Patients seeking to have a body lift covered by insurance need to meet certain criteria for the surgery and even the initial consultation to be covered by insurance.
Please check with your insurance company prior to scheduling any consultation and be clear to the DermASAP staff when scheduling the consultation if insurance coverage is sought.
