What is a Body Lift?
Using advanced body contouring methods, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina is a skilled cosmetic surgeon who proudly offers body lift surgery to his Tulsa, OK patients. A body lift combines the benefits of two popular treatments, including a tummy tuck and a butt lift. These treatments can help patients tighten their figure and create a rounder posterior. Utilizing a mix of liposuction, body contouring techniques, and fat transfer or grafting, you can rejuvenate the appearance of your body. To learn more, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Cuzalina at Tulsa Surgical Arts.
Is A Body Lift For You?
If you desire a tighter tummy and shapelier buttocks, a body lift can help you achieve your cosmetic goals. To address the excess skin or fat on your stomach, a tummy tuck can improve the shape of your figure. Often, these symptoms are caused by aging, pregnancy, or dramatic weight loss. A body lift works best for patients who have reached their ideal body weight; otherwise, it could impact your surgical results. Even though the procedure will help remove some fat, it does not remove large amounts.

Body Lift Technique
In one of our AAAHC-accredited operating rooms, the Venetian or Bellagio, we will start by administering general anesthesia so you can remain comfortable during the treatment. Body lift surgery involves an incision that goes around the entire waist in the bikini area. Depending on your body type, we may need to perform your tummy tuck surgery and buttocks lift procedure separately. Once we have excised the excess skin and used liposuction to remove the fat, we will start the Brazilian butt lift. During this part of your procedure, we place some of the excess fat into a centrifuge to purify it. Next, we inject the fat into your buttocks for a shapelier appearance. After finishing both parts of your surgery, we will suture your incisions and take you back to the recovery room.
Body Lift Recovery
To encourage proper healing, patients need to wear a compression garment and an abdominal binder. These items will help with blood circulation, improve the contours of your body, and reduce fluid retention. Dr. Cuzalina will also insert tubes near the incisions, and he will remove them in about a week. Sometimes, you may need the tubes for longer. After a body lift, patients need about 1 – 2 weeks for recovery. Before you leave, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions that will outline information, such as:
- Walking the day after to prevent blood clots from forming
- Managing side effects
- Avoiding strenuous activities for 2 – 6 weeks
It is important to closely follow the post-operative instructions to reduce the appearance of scars, encourage healing, decrease uncomfortable symptoms, and prevent infection.
Enhance Your Weight Loss Goals
A body lift is an excellent treatment option for patients who want to tighten their tummy and have a shapelier backside. By combining a tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Cuzalina can help enhance the natural beauty of your figure. During your consultation, we will discuss your goals and create a custom treatment plan that meets your cosmetic needs. Our group can also provide information about the cost or if financing is available. Please call Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK to learn more and schedule an appointment.
