About the One-Stage Body Lift
Sometimes called a torsoplasty, a one-stage body lift is a type of body contouring procedure that combines several different approaches to get rid of unwanted skin and fat while lifting and reshaping the mid-lower regions of the body. One-stage body lift surgery addresses the middle and lower portions of the body, such as the stomach, buttocks, thighs, flanks, and lower back. Depending on your unique needs and goals, a circumferential 360 incision may be made, which will allow us to perform the most effective incision and lift. Our board-certified surgeons, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin, have many years of experience in performing body contouring and skin removal treatments. Reach out to our team at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL to learn more about your options.

"I had been struggling with whether or not I should have a lower body lift after losing a large amount of weight. I made the decision to jump in after taking 4 flights in the span of two months where I was manhandled by TSA because of my extra skin. I chose CSA and Dr. Nuveen after consulting with 2 other practices and I am so glad I did. Dr Nuveen worked a miracle on me and I am still shocked and do a double take every time I pass by a mirror. I look amazing and feel even better. He and his staff are absolutely the best and make you feel so comfortable in a situation that can be overwhelming. I love this practice and staff so much that I will be having a breast lift with implants early next year. Thank you all for giving me my confidence back. That is a priceless gift!"- Anonymous / Facebook / May 09, 2022

HOW IS A ONE-STAGE BODY LIFT DONE?
A one-stage body lift is able to effectively address loose, sagging skin throughout the mid-lower portion of your body, including the thighs, flanks, stomach, and buttocks. A circumferential 360 incision, sometimes called a belt lipectomy, may be made to eliminate the unwanted skin. If any excess fat is present, liposuction may be performed. From there, any excess fat cells removed can be reinstated in other parts of the body, such as the buttocks, to produce a fuller look. Depending on the procedures included in your treatment plan, your surgeries may take place in one day or scheduled separately.
One-Stage Body Lift FAQ
How much does a one-stage body lift cost?
The price of a one-stage body lift will vary for each patient. In your initial consultation, Dr. Nuveen will create a treatment plan that can fit your goals and budget. Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates takes many payment methods, including low-interest financing, to make your surgical lift easy to afford.
Will I have visible scarring?
Several factors can contribute to how many scars you have and their visibility after a one-stage body lift. Dr. Nuveen designs incisions points so they're either easily concealed in less visible areas like in natural skin folds or where they will be covered by undergarments. A member of our team will give you post-surgery instructions, which will help your sutures heal correctly — so the scars are flat and, in time, blend into your skin.
What can I expect during recovery?
Following your one-stage body lift procedure, you will likely experience moderate bruising and inflammation in and around the treatment areas. Appointments for follow-up exams will be important so Dr. Nuveen can monitor your process. It's important to contact our office if you experience any signs of an infection or you have any questions.
Will I have to stay overnight in the hospital?
Usually, Dr. Nuveen requires his patients spend a minimum of one night in a hospital or medical facility after a one-stage body lift. This stay is to ensure your comfort and safety, so your health can be monitored and your pain and be controlled. Depending on how many areas are being treated and how quickly you recover, Dr. Nuveen may recommend you spend multiple nights. During your consultation, Dr. Nuveen will review facilities where you should stay, as well as how long he estimates you will be there.
