Am I a candidate for an upper body lift?

If you have saggy skin that’s lost its shape and elasticity due to weight loss or age, and if you live a healthy lifestyle without any medical conditions that could impair healing, then you’re the perfect candidate for this surgery.

How do I prepare myself before my upper body lift surgery?

Try to eat healthily and get a moderate amount of exercise in the weeks leading up to your procedure. Get organized at home and work so that you’re ready and able to recover in peace after the surgery. Talk to your doctor about your current medications to see if you need to stop taking anything. Avoid alcohol and cigarettes for the weeks before you have your body lift.

What are the risks and complications of this procedure?

Following your surgery, you may experience bruising, bleeding, or swelling at the incision sites. Fluid may accumulate, as well. There may be some numbness along the incisions, but it should fade with time. There is also a minimal risk of infection.

How long will my recovery take?

You’ll see initial results of your upper body lift procedure as soon as the swelling starts to go down. For an idea of what to expect, scroll through our gallery of photos showing the results before and after upper body lift procedures.

Why should I have the procedure done at Salameh Plastic Surgery?

Our plastic surgeons are double board-certified with years of knowledge and skilled expertise. They take a 360-degree approach to beauty that always puts the patient first, so you’ll be in excellent hands when you trust Salameh Plastic Surgery with your upper body lift.
