Dr. Brenman specializes in total body lift surgery, which is commonly used after extensive weight loss. When the body loses a lot of weight in a short space of time, excess skin can linger. This causes confidence issues as you don’t feel like your weight loss results can be seen. A body lift can treat this problem, making you feel more confident in your body and displaying your weight loss for all to see.
What is a Body Lift?
A body lift is a plastic surgery procedure that focuses on getting rid of excess skin from different parts of your body. It can target common problem areas, such as the legs, arms, stomach, sides, etc. As mentioned above, it’s generally used after weight loss, helping people who are self-conscious about their loose skin. The procedure consists of various incisions that are used to remove sagging skin, closing them up afterward. Dr. Brenman uses a specialized technique when closing up the incisions to reduce the appearance of any surgical scars.
Average Cost for Body Lift Surgery
Body lift surgery is very complex and can take many hours to perform. For this reason, it’s always important to seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure the highest quality procedure is carried out.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has suggested that the average cost was around $8,073 (based on 2019 statistics).
Factors that Influence Final Pricing
As with all plastic surgeries, many factors determine the final price of a body lift. This can include the surgeon’s experience and the location of the clinic. The following factors will also be a significant influence on the overall price:
- Facility costs
- Medical tests
- Surgeon’s fees
- Anesthesia fees
- Any medication required post-surgery
- Any clothing/garments required post-surgery
Benefits of a Body Lift
You will benefit from a body lift as it is the most effective way of removing excess, saggy skin from your body. When you put in the effort to lose a lot of weight, it’s a massive mental blow to look in the mirror and still not like what you see. While the scales tell you you’ve lost many pounds, your excess skin prevents you from seeing the true results. Therefore, a body lift reveals the true extent of your hard work, making you feel so much more comfortable in your body. It also provides permanent results in that the loose skin can’t grow back, meaning you never have to worry about it again.

Am I a Candidate for Body Lift Surgery?
There’s a common misconception that body lift surgery is a weight loss procedure. If you are hoping to lose weight by undergoing this surgery, you are not an ideal candidate! It is perfect for people who have already lost weight and are suffering from loose skin around their bodies. Ideal candidates will be healthy, non-smokers, and possess realistic expectations for the results. So, if you want a permanent solution to your excess skin, you could be a candidate for a body lift.
“After losing 87 pounds I decided I would treat myself and get a tummy tuck that I have been wanting for some time. I researched and thought Dr Scot Brenman would be best. Well suffice it to say I am not thrilled with my results. Ultimately my tummy is flatter which was what I wanted but my belly button is 2 inches above the incision line which I hate! He promised lipo which til this day I’m betting he didn’t do! Also his aftercare was thee WORSE! He never followed up with me after the removal of my drains! No way will he receive another one of my hard earned dimes!” *
