All-at-Once Body Lifting in Thailand
A Total Body lift is also known as All in one Body Contouring. This multiple-area surgery is a powerful way to improve your overall physical shape and tone your underlying tissues that support the skin and fat. If you have any excess fat and skin that has begun to sag due to recent weight loss,pregnancy or just natural aging then Thai Medical has some great minimally invasive options for you. We can help you reshape your entire body by removing fat and excess skin surgically or via modern liposuction techniques such as Vaser or Bodytite to help treat the loose or flabby condition that is caused primarily due to very poor elasticity of your tissues.
Body lifting is one of our most popular cosmetic surgeries we offer since it combines multiple surgeries to help shape and tone your abdomens,thighs,breasts and/or buttocks. A lower body lift or belt lipectomy surgery that involves your thighs,back,buttocks and tummy while the upper body lift surgery will focus mainly on your breasts, middle back, and chest areas. The combination or the lower and upper body lift is known as the Total body lift surgery and is accomplished in either one stage/week or two different stages/weeks. (UPDATED Aug 25, 2016)

Body lifts and/or Body contouring are often used to tighten and/or sagging fatty tissues,cellulite or excess skin. Body contouring surgeries are especially helpful for men or women who have recently undergone massive weight loss typically via weight loss surgery such the Lap Band or the Gastric Bypass. Total Body contouring can also help women get their pre-pregnancy shape and bodies back in a treatment combo known as the Mommy Makeover.
Total Body Contouring Surgery Preparation
In order to qualify for having a total body makeover, certain conditions must be met. You should have already maintained a stable weight for at least a two to three months before considering having surgery and should already be actively participating in proper eating habits, exercise and/or dietary program. Candidates who have recently had the Lap Band or any other gastric weight loss procedures should ideally wait at least 6 months to 1 year after to let your body recover and to also give ample time for any underlying health problems associated with their previous obesity to improve naturally over time.
Women who are planning on having children soon are also advised to try to postpone any surgery until after they give birth. Women and men in their 20’s,30’s and 40’s and even 50’s may consider body reshaping surgery as a great solution to help remove the stubborn remaining fat and skin tissue after already reducing excessive weight.
The 360 Body Lift Procedure
Bodylifting is a major surgery and therefore typically performed in one of our internationally accredited JCI Hospitals in Bangkok or Phuket. The total time needed for surgery will range from 2 to 6 hours depending not the areas and amount of skin and tissue being removed. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia (asleep) but may use local anesthesia for minor contouring that uses minimally invasive liposuction.
Lower bodylifts usually starts with an almost belt-like excision directly above your outer thighs and buttocks area. One of our Top cosmetic surgeons may also further separate the skin on the thighs to help achieve better results. Our surgeons can then carefully remove any excess skin and then they will begin to reshape the underlying tissue finally suturing the area and beginning the Abdominoplasty portion of the treatment.
Tummy Tucks involve a making a horizontal incision along your pubic area and another small incision near the navel to help loosen any abdominal skin from your underlying tissue. Your surgeon can then begin to tighten your stomach muscles and finally remove any excess skin and/or tissues. The surgeon may also carefully suction out any of the remaining fat in the area. The remaining skin will then be repositioned and finally sutured near the pubic area, after which your belly button will be returned to their original location.
An upper bodylift begins first with the careful removal of your bra-line skin. After your surgeon closes this bra-line excision, they will have eliminated all the fat rolls from your back and also helped narrow your waistline. Any remaining extra fat or skin tissue under/near your breasts or near the rib cage will also be removed in the upper bodylift surgery. When closing the sutures, the surgeon will also tighten the skin under your breasts, and allow the now raised abdominal skin to be sutured to the lower rib cage.
