How much weight can you lose with body lift?
This is not a weight loss surgery. It is the procedure applied after losing weight.

A body lift is a surgical procedure that can remove some fatty tissue but focuses on removing excess skin. Body stretching is not done for the purpose of losing weight. Before the procedure itself, make sure you are as close to your desired weight as possible.
Can all regions be treated at the same time?
Most of these surgical applications can be planned at the same time. For example, breast operations can be combined with arm stretching, and belt lipectomy with leg stretching. However, simultaneous surgical intervention in all areas is often not recommended for reasons such as the health of the patients and the prolongation of the operation period. Your surgeon may suggest dividing these operations into 2 or 3 separate operations.

Is the operation performed under general anesthesia?
Yes, you will be under general anesthesia during the operation.
