If weight loss, pregnancy or other circumstances have left you with an abundance of excess skin, a full body lift performed by Dr. Stephen Greenberg at his offices serving Long Island, Manhattan and the greater New York City area, can restore the contours you desire.
As gastric bypass and bariatric surgeries grow in popularity, so does the full body lift. Dr. Greenberg has years of experience performing this extensive and very specialized cosmetic surgery. Contact our Long Island practice to learn more.

Following massive weight loss, either through a bariatric surgical procedure or through dieting and exercise, patients are often left with loose, saggy skin. To tighten the skin and improve the contours of your body, Dr. Greenberg offers body lift procedures. He will commonly combine abdominoplasties with other procedures such as thigh lifts, arm lifts, breast lifts, and face lifts.
What Is A Full Body Lift?
Extreme weight loss, pregnancies or age can cause excess, sagging skin and fatty tissue on the lower torso and upper legs. This occurs because the skin has been stretched and is now loose and has permanently lost elasticity. A full body lift - also known as a belt lipectomy - will remove this extra skin and fat from the belly, hips, buttocks, backs and outer thigh. A full body lift offers dramatic, lifelong results. Excess skin and fat are removed, the contours of the body are lifted and flattened, and patients experience more confidence as they feel more comfortable in clothing.
Your Body Lift Consultation...
Dr. Stephen Greenberg will meet with you and discuss your body lift options and decide if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Generally body lift candidates are people who have lost a great deal of weight, usually 60 pounds and over.
Dr. Greenberg will answer all of your questions and make sure you completely understand the body lift procedure. He'll show you before and after photos and give his honest and professional opinion on how a body lift might improve your body contour. Dr. Greenberg will discuss with you other procedures that may be able to be performed at the same time as your body lift.
You will be introduced to your team of specialists who are dedicated to making your cosmetic surgery experience a comfortable and positive experience. You can also receive information about the cost of the procedure and potential financing options.
Your Body Lift Surgery...
The body lift surgery consists of vertical tightening of the skin. Vertical tightening requires a thin incision around the entire waist. The skin is then pulled up or down and the excess is removed from the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and back. A body lift may also include an upper arm lift, inner thigh lift, breast lift, face lift, liposuction and other procedures.
Body Lift Recovery...
Body lift surgery takes approximately seven hours to complete. You will probably be slightly bruised and swollen and will experience some pain for a few days, but medication will be prescribed to keep you comfortable. You will need to rest for about one week. Normal activities can be resumed by most patients within four to six weeks.
