The results of body lift surgery are visible almost immediately. However, it may take two years or more for the final results of the body lift procedures to fully develop.

Two weeks before surgery: Review your medications and herbal and dietary supplements with your physician. The following may increase the risk of post-operative bleeding: aspirin, ibuprofen, glucosamine chondroitin, flax seed, vitamin E, fish oil, Echinacea, Gingko biloba, CoQ10, green tea, chia seeds, primrose oil, and garlic. One to four weeks following surgery: • Continue your wound care. • Refrain from weight-bearing exercise. Continue walking. A daily, brisk 20-minute walk is recommended. • Do not smoke. • Continue to wear your elastic wrap or compression garment as directed. • Continue to attend massage therapy .1 • Practice good sun protection. Do not expose skin in the treatment area to direct sunlight. If you are outdoors, apply an SPF 30 or higher to the skin at least 30 minutes prior to sun exposure and wear protective clothing. The skin in the treatment area is highly susceptible to sunburn or the formation or irregular, darkened pigmentation. Six weeks following surgery: • Healing will progress and your lower body will settle into a more final shape and position. • You may ease into your regular fitness routine. However, realize that your body may require some time to return to previous strength. • Discomfort or tightness and tingling of the skin will resolve. • No need to resume smoking. You have now gone ten weeks (including four weeks prior to surgery) without a cigarette. For your long-term health, there is no need to resume smoking.
