The Most Dangerous Type of Cosmetic Surgery

In case you missed today’s show, check out the video of Lisa’s incredible journey. About a month ago, I performed a bodylift on Lisa, a woman who lost 178 pounds through by dieting, exercise and sheer determination. Lisa’s journey was chronicled by the show. After massive weight loss, skin hangs everywhere – the belly, the buttocks, the thighs, and the breasts. A bodylift, known also as a belt lipectomy, lifts the tummy, the thighs, the buttocks and the genitals. Four benefits for the price of one! And that’s what Lisa had. When we taped the show, Lisa was 4 weeks out from her surgery and her life has changed – for the better.

About a month ago, I performed a bodylift on Lisa, a woman who lost 178 pounds through by dieting, exercise and sheer determination. Lisa’s journey was chronicled by the show.  After massive weight loss, skin hangs everywhere – the belly, the buttocks, the thighs, and the breasts. A bodylift, known also as a belt lipectomy, lifts the tummy, the thighs, the buttocks and the genitals.  Four benefits for the price of one! And that’s what Lisa had.

Bodylifting is the most complex and the most dangerous of all cosmetic surgeries. Half of people who undergo the procedure have some sort of a complication. The best candidates are healthy people who have reached their ideal weight and stayed there for at least 6 months. It’s not for the faint of heart – the surgery takes over 6 hours and costs about $20,000.
