Full Body Lift in NYC Options

Whether you want to firm your whole body or focus on one area, Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani can help. He can perform full body lifts, breast lifts, arm lifts, or thigh lifts for patients seeking to smooth their appearance.

Full Body Lift in NYC

A full body lift is ideal for patients seeking to eliminate excess fatty tissue and skin on their lower backs and waistlines. You may benefit from a full body lift if you’ve experienced the following:

  • You have recently lost significant weight and are experiencing loose skin.
  • You have given birth and are experiencing skin laxity.
  • You have unwanted excess skin, extra fatty tissue, or skin laxity you want to amend.
Body Lift Details

Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani performs full body lifts at our state-of-the-art in-office facility in Manhattan. Most full body lifts take approximately 5 hours to complete and typically focus on the abdomen and lower back.

Once a full body lift surgery begins, Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani will use liposuction to remove excess fat. After finishing liposuction, he will pull back the skin in the treated area so it lays flat. The end result is a smooth, more aesthetically pleasing silhouette.

Body Lift Procedures

Because full body lifts often require a lot of time, Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani may determine to address the lower back and waistline areas in two separate procedures. He will discuss this possibility with you in your pre-surgical consultation so you can plan accordingly.

Some patients may want to combine a full body lift in NYC with other lift procedures. This possibility depends on the patient, their BMI, the extent of the procedures, and what procedures they want. If they have to wait between procedures, that period is usually 1 to 2 months.

Full Body Lift in NYC Recovery

While our Patient Care Coordinator and Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani will give you detailed information about what to expect during your recovery period, you can plan for the following:

Most people who have a full body lift in NYC can expect to need 2 to 4 weeks to recover.
Patients also will need to refrain from working out for 1 to 2 months to give their bodies time to heal.

Our exceptional care team will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery and to ensure you’re happy with your results.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a full body lift in NYC cost?

Full body lift surgery costs anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.

Is a full body lift painful?

While all surgeries will cause discomfort and require time to heal, we will keep you as comfortable as possible with the aid of the following:

  • Post-surgery prescription pain medication
  • Post-surgery care guidelines
What can I do to prepare for a full body lift?

We ask patients to wash with Hibiclens at least 5 days before their full body lift. Our care team will go over all prep instructions during the pre-op appointment.

It is also important to have a healthy BMI before undergoing a full body lift. Most patients will need to obtain medical clearance and pre-op testing before the procedure. They also should have a support system to help them through recovery.

Some patients may have undergone bariatric surgery and therefore may be susceptible to nutritional deficiencies. As a result, appropriate pre-operative nutritional labs may be required to ensure optimal safety prior to proceeding to surgery. Maintaining a high-protein diet with high-quality foods is a paramount goal for patients prone to malnourishment before, and after surgery to promote proper healing.

Breast Lift

Aging and breastfeeding can cause the breast to become atrophic, resulting in deflation and sagging. A breast lift can address the sagging and bring the breast and nipple up higher.

Breast Lift Details

During a breast lift at our premier Manhattan office, Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani will place the nipple and areola in a lifted position on the breast and chest. He will make specific incisions to follow your tailored treatment plan and match the predetermined lift pattern discussed during your patient consultation.

Most breast lift procedures last 2 to 4 hours and depend on the complexity and style of the lift.

Breast Procedures

Depending on how deflated a patient’s breasts are and if the patient wants to be a larger size, combining a lift with an augmentation may be a good option.

Breast Lift Recovery

For breast procedures, it is important to avoid lifting anything heavier than 5 pounds for a few weeks.

Additionally, you should not do overhead activities, like reaching over your head, for the first two weeks; this can affect the scar’s healing process.

The recovery time after a breast lift is between 1 and 7 days.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do breast lifts last?

Many factors, such as age, lifestyle, skin quality and elasticity, and the size of the breast, will impact how long a lift lasts. A healthy lifestyle can help increase this procedure’s longevity.

How much does a breast lift cost?

Breast lifts typically cost between $9,000 and $15,000.

What types of activities should I avoid and engage in after my breast lift?

It’s best not to return to resistance training for at least 4 weeks so your scars do not stretch. You’ll also need to avoid jogging, running, or other vigorous aerobic activities greater than an easy-paced walk for at least a month post-surgery.

Arm Lift

Sometimes, the upper arm area can accumulate excess fat. While patients can reduce arm fat through diet changes and exercise, excess arm skin can remain. An arm lift (brachioplasty) can address both of these concerns.

Arm Lift Details

During an arm lift, Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani will remove extra fat and skin from a patient’s upper arms. First, he will use liposuction, then make an incision in the upper arm to remove excess or loose skin. This procedure typically takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete.

Arm Lift Recovery

Arm lift recovery takes between 1 and 4 weeks and depends on the technique Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani uses. Patients will need to refrain from working out for 1 month after their procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I have to get another arm lift?

If a patient gains weight after surgery, they may develop excess arm fat again.

How much does an arm lift cost?

Arm lifts cost between $7,000 and $12,000.

Is an arm lift painful?

Patients will experience some discomfort after an arm lift, but our providers will prescribe pain medication to help with any post-surgical discomfort.

Thigh Lift

It’s common for people to carry excess skin and fat in their thighs. A thigh lift (thighplasty) can address this area and create a smooth, contoured look.

Patients experiencing skin laxity from age or weight loss and those with excess fat on their thighs can benefit from this procedure.

Thigh Lift Details

Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani will perform this 1 to 2 hour procedure at our in-office surgical suite. He will first use liposuction in the thigh and then make an incision on the upper thigh to remove excess or loose skin.

Thigh Lift Recovery

Most patients need 2 to 4 weeks to recover from thigh lift surgery and should not exercise for a month following the procedure. We will monitor your results with follow-up appointments.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a thigh lift cost?

A thigh lift costs between $8,000 and $15,000.

How can a thigh lift help me?

Thigh lifts can help some patients feel more confident in their clothing. This procedure can also help correct skin laxity in patients who have lost a lot of weight, helping them get closer to their body goals.
