  • Lower Body Lift: In this procedure excess skin is taken from the abdomen, buttocks, hips and outer thighs. In this procedure, cellulite is being removed giving a proper skin surface.
  • Breast Lift: The lollipop shaped series of cuts are made around the breast and excess skin is removed giving a proper shape to the breast.
  • Arm Lift: Cut is made on the inner surface of the upper arm of the armpit to remove extra skin. This gives tightened and smooth skin at the upper arm.
