FaceDescription: Also known as a “Mommy Makeover”, a body lift is an all-in-one procedure to regain your pre-pregnancy figure. It includes liposuction, breast augmentation, a breast lift and a tummy tuck.

How it’s done: First a consultation must be done, so the doctor can make an assessment of your body and determine which treatments should be done. It may not be necessary to do both a breast lift and augmentation. On the day of surgery, the patient is put under general anesthetic and all the procedures are performed.

Complications: Swelling, bruising, bleeding, and pain are common side effects that can be expected. More serious complications include loss of sensation at incision sites, and infection. See the complications for the individual procedures for more.

Recovery: No strenuous activity is allowed for six weeks, and you will have to wear a compression garment. However, many patients are well enough to return to work after one week, as long as they avoid strenuous activity.

Cost: $6,000 to $20,000 depending on the number of procedures being performed.
