Body Contouring in Boca Raton


After weight loss or various life transitions, loose and saggy skin can form. Often times we find it's resistant to remedies such as diet and exercise. However, a total body lift offers a comprehensive solution, targeting multiple areas to unveil a more contoured, sculpted silhouette. By eliminating excess skin and stubborn fat, body contouring can reveal a sleeker, more confident version of yourself. The procedure is designed to target excess skin on the stomach, thighs, buttocks, back and other mid-body regions. The overall goal of body contouring is to create a more streamlined and younger-looking frame, as well as remove excess sagging skin in common trouble areas.

The total lower body lift is performed via a high-tension abdominoplasty, where Dr. Keusch adjusts the abdominal walls in such a way to provide tightening that extends down to the thighs. Additionally, the lower body lift includes a buttock lift, which helps provide skin-tightening and toning benefits that elevate the buttocks and allows greater skin trimming along the sides.

The upper body lift removes excess skin along the back bra fat rolls. The scar lies along the bra line and therefore is hidden in most outfits.

The overall goal is to create a slimmer and more streamlined profile that looks younger and more toned.


Frequently Asked Questions

Please feel free to contact our office directly if you have additional questions on lower or upper body lifts.

You’re a good candidate for the lower body lift if you have sagging skin that’s particularly visible on the stomach, upper thighs, and other mid-body regions. You’re a candidate for the upper body lift if you have skin roles along the bra fat areas of the back. This sagging may be a result of aging or of significant weight loss; whatever the reason, the ideal candidate should be a nonsmoker who is committed to continuing with a healthy lifestyle.

Results can be life-changing, especially for patients who may feel self-conscious about sagging skin along the torso. After about 8 to 12 weeks (when the majority of swelling has gone down), you’ll notice that your body appears sleeker and more contoured. Some patients may even see several inches lost around their stomachs as a result of having excess skin removed.

The majority of the recovery period takes about six to eight weeks, as this is a larger surgical procedure. During the first week, you should expect to minimize movement; for example, you’ll be prevented from lifting anything heavier than five pounds. You should plan on having support at home to help you manage day-to-day tasks, as you should spend most of your time recuperating.

You should be cleared to return back to work within one to two weeks, depending on your job role. You may be cleared by Dr. Keusch to resume normal exercise at or around the six-week mark.

Throughout your recovery, you’ll have regular check-ins with Dr. Keusch to ensure your recovery is successful.
