So who is a candidate for a body lift? In general most body lifts are performer on patients that have massive weight loss wether its through dieting or exercise or through surgical means either by gastric bypass or lap band. And these individuals who have lost more than a hundred pounds they often have excess skin and laxity that is the volume of skin for 2 people. So in these patients we have a lot of buttocks sagging, lose skin around their abdomen and hanging down their pubic region or as well as in the hips. Those were patients that are the best candidate for body lift.
