Body Lift Washington, DC

Body LiftBody lift is a term that incorporates several different surgical approaches to re-contouring the area around the waist. It is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the middle and lower abdomen, outer thighs, back, and buttocks, and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. There are a number of different techniques used for a body lift, and Dr. Olding will work with you to determine which option is best for you.

The body lift is performed as an inpatient procedure and will require at least one overnight stay in the hospital. Patients generally return to work and to strenuous activity within a month to six weeks. Scars fade within three months to two years. Results vary by age and weight, but are usually dramatic.

His hands and surgical skills are legendary

I have known Dr. Olding for over 20 years. He has worked on many close to me and myself. He is the most honest, ethical plastic surgeon I know. He doesn’t sugar-coat or tell Ugly Betty she will look like a movie star after he is done and sucks 100 lbs out of her. I refer to him frequently and would highly suggest anyone considering cosmetic surgery should at least get an opinion from him because HE WILL BE HONEST. His hands and surgical skills are legendary.

Patients may experience temporary swelling, soreness, bruising, or numbness. Potential complications include blood clots to the lungs, asymmetry, bleeding, infection, fluid retention, excessive scarring, or necrosis of the skin around the belly button.

Important Announcement

I am committed to the health and safety of my patients. Public health officials have mandated the cancellation of elective surgeries, and for the protection of our patients and their families, we will not be seeing elective patients until the ban on doing so is lifted. Therefore, for the next few weeks, we will not be scheduling new appointments or procedures; however, our staff will continue to be available to take phone calls and answer your questions. Once we have some glitches out of the system, you will be able to have a virtual consult with me – stay tuned!
