A body lift procedure is exactly what you might expect – a “facelift” for your body. If your back and bottom droop for various reasons, you’ll benefit from this procedure, which tightens loose, sagging skin and removes fat to create a beautiful, balanced and more vibrant body. A body lift surgery is the most effective way to restore this part of your body.
Dr. Beverly Fischer has been performing this surgery for over 20 years and is a recognized cosmetic surgery expert in the Baltimore area.

A body lift treatment is an outpatient procedure that can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and how you feel about your body. Our patients are so grateful to finally have this part of their body in line with the rest of their body and with their inner self.
Dr. Fischer and her team can help you transform your body into the one you’ve always wanted. She will remove excess tissue and tighten the skin of the upper abdomen down to the mid-thigh to eliminate back rolls and create a smooth, attractive silhouette.

If you have a back or bottom that feels heavy, looks like it’s sagging and literally “pulls” you down, you’re probably a good candidate for a body lift. These areas are difficult to enhance through diet and exercise as all the exercise in the world will never remove excess skin. This approach is often the best and safest way to address the issue.

Fill out this form to schedule your consultation for a thoughtful, truthful recommendation. Sometimes you just don’t need to have work done, and we will certainly let you know if that’s the case.
At the consultation, Dr. Fischer will review your medical history and discuss your specific goals.
Three weeks prior to your body lift procedure, you’ll come to our offices to sign consent forms and receive very specific pre- and post-operative instructions.
For a body lift, we’ll take your “before” photos and then you will meet our Anesthesiologist who will explain their process and plan. Dr. Fischer will then come in to “mark you up” with a marker according to her plan for you that day. You will then walk back to the surgical suite and our team will get you prepped for surgery by connecting you to the monitors and inserting your IV. Then we will administer general anesthesia, and Dr. Fischer will perform the body lift procedure with cutting-edge tools and high tension sutures. Drains will be placed and will remain for one week (you will not be able to take a shower until these drains are removed).
Afterward, we’ll make you comfortable with a compression garment designed to help you heal faster. You’ll be able to go home that day, and any discomfort can be treated with prescription medication.
Your drains will be removed at the end of the first week and you can take that long-awaited shower! You’ll be able to return to work at some point in this time period, depending upon the extent of the surgery. You’ll likely experience a good bit of swelling and bruising, but that will improve over time. You may even feel like you look worse than before, but you will improve! Make sure that you’re getting enough rest and avoid strenuous activity for the first 1-2 weeks. Keep wearing your compression garment for several weeks.
You’ll notice a big difference in swelling, although it can continue for about 6 months or more. You can resume your normal routine, including more strenuous activity. Your shape will be more proportional and aesthetically pleasing, and your clothes will look and fit better.
