Body Lift Surgery Before and After Photos


Here, we present a selection of real before and after photos featuring individuals who have undergone procedures that fall within the Body Lift category.

These procedures play a significant role in addressing excess and redundant skin following substantial weight loss. The surgical techniques encompassed by the ‘Body Lift‘ (Torsoplasty) category include Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), Belt Lipectomy, Thigh Lift (Thighplasty), and Arm Lift (Brachioplasty).

For a more patient before and after images, we encourage you to visit our clinic where you can view additional photos during your consultation.

As a result of the revised AHPRA guidelines that came into affect on July 1st, 2023, our website is currently undergoing significant modifications. This has necessitated the removal of a substantial portion of our Before and After photos due to non-compliance with the updated regulations. While our primary priority is to ensure the accuracy and relevance of our content, we are committed to reintroducing a wider selection of before and after photos as soon as possible.

DISCLAIMER: The outcomes shown are only relevant for these patients and do not necessarily reflect the results other patients may experience, as results may vary due to many factors including the individual’s genetics, diet and exercise.
