What is a 360 body lift?
Ever heard of the 360 Body Lift? It’s a complete lower body lift that includes an abdominoplasty and a body lift involving the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips, and thighs.
The procedure involves “lifting” the lower part of the body by removing excess skin and fat from the waist area above the buttocks and is ideal for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight either through a lifestyle change program or medical intervention.
It is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures conducted by our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons at Maison Lutetia in Dubai. The procedure helps patients regain confidence after severe weight loss.
When to consider a 360 Lift?
The ideal candidate for a 360 body lift is someone who has reached their ideal body weight but struggles with excess skin and sagging tissue. A patient who underwent extreme weight loss either through bariatric surgery (Lap-Band or Gastric Bypass) or diet and exercise, are often left with large amounts of sagging, loose skin. This skin cannot shrink back to its formal size and requires surgical intervention.
What do you need to know about this Procedure?
During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss the incision length and pattern, as it depends on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed.
For most patients, the lift is circumferential as it treats both the abdomen and the back area. Your surgeon will make an incision that runs along the top of your buttocks (meeting in the middle), for some it will continue around the front over the hips to connect with your abdominoplasty incision.
The abdominoplasty involves removing excess skin and fat from the tummy area if muscle laxity is a highlighted concern your surgeon will tighten the abdominal wall muscles. Our Board Certified Surgeons use a permanent stitch which acts like a shoelace, pulling the muscles back into place.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and an overnight stay in the hospital will be required.

What happens at the consultation?
Remember to write down all your possible concerns and questions and have them ready for when you meet with your plastic surgeon. You will be discussing your surgical options, the pros and cons of each, as well as your medical history. The surgeon will need to know all your current medications you are taking and any serious illness you may have had in the past and as to whether you smoke.
You will have an examination, including medical photography that will be placed in your confidential medical file (you will sign a consent form for taking, storing, and using the photographs). Your height and weight will be measured to ensure you are physically fit for the operation.
