Body Contouring – Body Lift for Men
Diet and exercise will not always eliminate unwanted loose skin or fat deposits. Body Contouring surgery removes excess fat and sagging skin to give the body a more natural, toned appearance.
Body Contouring procedures are a great solution for people who experience loose folds of skin around the abdominal area, flanks, back, thighs and buttocks from:
- Massive weight loss through dieting and exercise or bariatric surgery
- Loss of skin elasticity, due to age or heredity
Body Contouring procedures remove excess skin and underlying fat, then reconstructs or “lifts” the skin to achieve a tighter, more toned look. The transformation is dramatic for most patients, resulting in improved body contour, better fitting clothes and improved overall appearance and self-image.
About the Procedure:
A complete lower body lift treats the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs in one procedure. A circumferential incision around the body removes an apron of excess skin and fat and re-positions and tightens tissues. The length and pattern of your surgical incision will depend on the amount and location of excess skin that must be removed to provide your desired result.
Liposuction may be done in conjunction with a body lift. Learn more about Liposuction.
Recovery & Aftercare:
- Patients may experience some degree of bruising, swelling and tenderness
- Bed rest for several days following surgery is recommended
- Limit activity for several weeks following surgery
- Avoid strenuous activities for about four to six weeks
- Return to work in about three to four weeks
- You will be placed into a form fitting compression garment to help keep the swelling to a minimum and expedite the healing process

Surgery isn’t just for the ladies! I lost 100 pounds; got back into shape and wanted give my wife the pleasure of being married to a 50 year old man with a 25 year old butt! What a Christmas it was for her (and me too). Dr. Cohen is a fantastic, skilled surgeon. Indeed he is a true artist. I had a full body lift and now have a flat stomach for the first time in my life. I’m actually working on the six pack after getting rid of the keg.
