Body Lift – Achieve Your Ideal Weight And Tighten Your Loose Skin

You can consider getting a body lift if you want an improvement or elimination of your excess skin on your stomach, butt or thighs. This cosmetic procedure would be very beneficial if you have lost massive weight that has left you with sagging skin. Cellulite and poor skin elasticity as a result of aging, pregnancy or genetic factors may also be treated with the procedure. Generally, a body lift involves the combination of cosmetic procedures that include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), butt lift, and thigh lift. The treatment achieves skin tightening, but we may also use liposuction to contour areas not excised for optimal results. At Body by Bloch, in the Chicago metro area, we perform all these procedures in combination under general anesthesia. The procedure has a prolonged recovery and potential side effects that we will discuss with you during your consultation. You can book an consultation with us at or give us a call at 1-847-686-3183.
