At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, we consider the body lift one of the largest and most rewarding procedures in body contouring. While the procedure has many names, but generally consists of a thigh lift, a buttock lift, and possibly a tummy tuck. Many post-bariatric patients receive some kind of body lift following surgery.


Many factors go into someone needing a body lift. Most of the time, genetics plays a role. However, weight gain acts as another common cause because of the overstretching of the skin.


To assess whether you benefit from a body lift as a post-bariatric patient, stand in front of a mirror and pull your lateral thigh and buttock up with both hands. If you pull up a large amount of skin and see significant improvement in the thigh/buttock area, you will benefit from a body lift.


If you have extra skin in the medial thigh area, you’ll need a medial thigh lift. For some, we perform the procedure at the same time as a lower body lift.
