Body Lift or Torsoplasty Indianapolis and Carmel Indiana

If you are interested in having a body lift in Indianapolis or Carmel, Indiana, Dr. Janet Turkle can help. Healthy diet and exercise can lead to a toned and smooth body. However, for some patients, diet and exercise alone will not eliminate loose and sagging skin or uneven contours. Loose skin can be caused by aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and heredity.

A surgical body lift reduces and removes excess skin and fat. Surgery may be performed on the abdominal area, buttocks, groin, thighs or upper arms. Body lifts are not intended to remove only fat. A full body lift will remove excess skin as well. Liposuction can be used to remove fat deposits where skin tone is good. A combination of a body lift and liposuction may be recommended when the skin elasticity is poor. No other procedure will restore body shape, skin appearance and skin tone as effectively as a body lift.

The Body Lift Procedure

An incision is made around the entire midsection around the level of the lower waist. Excess fat is removed, the skin is pulled into place and the excess skin is trimmed, completing the body lift.
