Body Lift

Achieve natural looking body contours after substantial weight loss with Beverly Hills Body Lift & Lower Body Lift surgery by Plastic Surgeon Dr. Calvert.

What is a body lift?

Dr. Calvert Beverly Hills Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon believes that the plastic surgeon should be involved in creating the post-operative treatment plan for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. This complex group of patients needs to be handled quite differently than the general population.

Post-bariatric body contouring is an art that combines the power of surgical planning with a sense of aesthetic creation. Every patient is different and has a different shape. Customizing the plan for each patient allows Dr. Calvert to create the best possible results for his body lift and body contouring patients.

You may want a total body lift if you:

  • Underwent bariatric surgery and are experiencing issues with excess skin and lack of contouring

The Beverly Hills Body Lift Procedure:

The Total Body Lift is a procedure where all of the major body contouring operations are performed in a single stage. This operation allows busy people to have their bodies converted from the post-bariatric or post-weight loss state into a smaller, shapelier state in one operation. It typically requires a hospital stay of three to five days and about six weeks prior to returning to work.

Dr. Calvert on Post-Bariatric Treatment:

Dr. Calvert trained with some of the pioneers of Bariatric Surgery operations during his residency at the University of Pittsburgh. In that time, he learned about the laparoscopic weight loss operations and then went on to perform many body lifts and other operations for patients who had excess skin due to massive weight loss. He continues to work closely with Dr. Dennis Hurwitz of the Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery and together, they have established the Hurwitz Center for Body Contouring at the Roxbury Clinic and Surgery Center.

A frequent speaker at bariatric support groups, Dr. Calvert has been serving the weight loss population since his time in residency. He often works with his team of plastic surgeons to help reduce operating times thus minimizing the risks of these difficult operations. Dr. Dennis Hurwitz and Dr. Calvert will for special cases operate together and they see the team approach is crucial to achieving the best results for their patients.

Prior to your body lift surgery, Dr.Calvert will provide instructions for how to help reduce the risks of complications both before and after your body lift procedure.
