The body lift procedure is performed on post bariatric patients as well as patients who have not had weight loss. The body lift transforms patients that have experienced massive weight loss and have excess skin. However, results are just as dramatic in patients who in addition to a tummy tuck want a tightening of the skin in their thighs and buttocks. The body lift (belt lipectomy) has the advantage that it can be done in one surgical session, or in stages, depending on the patients’ needs.
An Arm lift or brachioplasty is a procedure that removes the excess skin from under the arm between the underarm (axilla) and the elbow. This skin can often sag after weight lost, repeated weight gain with lost or from aging skin that has lost its elasticity. Removal of this sagging skin reshapes the arm giving the arm a smoother contour with tighter skin.
Liposculpture (or suction-assisted lipectomy) has become one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed by plastic surgeons today. Proven safety, minimal scarring and outstanding results have made it the preferred method for removing fat from the hips, thighs, buttocks and midriff as well as areas of the face, neck, arms and back.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty involves repair of the abdominal wall muscles (rectus abdominus) which is often stretched from pregnancy, fluctuation in weight, aging, prior surgery or heredity. Diastasis recti is the medical term used to describe the stretching of the tissue between the muscles which most often occurs with pregnancy.

Many women have excess skin in the thigh area because of weight gain and loss and skin laxity due to aging. A thigh lift removes the excess skin, tightens up the thighs and allows Dr. Hardaway to provide her patients with shapelier upper legs.
Back lifts are often needed in combination with liposuction to give the back a smoother appearance. Often liposuction is performed first to remove the excess fat. If the skin is then unable to shrink sufficiently, a back lift may be needed.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Fat grafting to the buttocks not only gives shape to the buttocks but also contouring of other areas of the body. Fat is harvested (liposuctioned) from multiple areas of the body. The fat is then separated from any liquefied components and then injected into the buttocks to give a fuller look to the buttocks.
Dr. Hardaway is often asked about the so-called “mommy makeover.” This is a popular term that is used to describe a combination of aesthetic/ plastic surgery procedures done concurrently to “bring back” the body of your youth. Mommy makeover patients have their body shape enhanced by doing combinations of tummy tucks, breast lifts, breast augmentations and by having areas of their body liposuctioned.
