Body Lift

When one loses a significant amount of weight, it’s not uncommon for him or her to have excess skin that hangs off the body and does not diminish no matter how much exercise you undertake. Body lift procedures from our Plastic Surgeon serving Sydney, Sutherland Shire, and the surrounding region, addresses all body areas that exhibit loose, hanging skin. Body lifting procedures serve to tighten the skin and eliminate the excess, giving your new slender physique a more taut and toned appearance.

There are a variety of body contouring procedures performed in combination that constitute a body lift. The type that is best for you will depend on your ultimate aesthetic enhancement goals among many other factors. Depending on the magnitude of the surgery and your health status, two or more episodes of surgery may be required to achieve your ultimate goal.

Body Lift Recovery

Recovery times for body lift will depend on which type of procedures are performed. Most typically require at least two to four weeks of healing and rest, but extensive procedures may require at least six weeks of recovery before resuming normal activities. Patients should expect a degree of swelling and bruising after surgery. Any discomfort can be managed with medication.

Please contact the practice of Dr. Darrell Perkins for more information on body lift procedures.

Body Lift Contouring Procedures include:

Arm Lift

The appearance of sagging skin on the arms can be improved significantly with an arm lift. Dr. Perkins will remove excess fat and skin and tighten the area, giving your arms a less bulky appearance.

Thigh Lift

thigh lift removes fat and excess skin along the upper, lower, and inner thighs. This procedure can do wonders for your appearance while also eliminating chafing and improving the experience of walking.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is extremely effective at reducing fat and excess skin in the mid-section and giving you a flatter, more fit-looking stomach. By tightening the abdominal muscles and pulling the skin taut, Dr. Darrell Perkins can help you achieve your goals and provide you with a smooth, tight abdominal region.


One of the most popular cosmetic enhancement procedures, liposuction is designed to eliminate fat deposits in virtually any body area. This relatively quick procedure gets rid of stubborn fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise and provides a more contoured appearance.
