Body Lifts

Serving Knoxville, Sevierville, Knox County & Nearby Areas of Tennessee

A body lift is less a single procedure, and more a combination of body contouring procedures that Dr. Dean Kleto can use to remove excess fat and skin from targeted areas of your body. Based on your unique needs, a body lift may also include other plastic surgery procedure such as breast augmentation. This will be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Kleto.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto looks at each body as the entirely unique piece of art it is. Based on your particular dimensions and your ultimate aesthetic goals, Dr. Kleto will customize a body lift procedure to help you achieve the body of your dreams.

Good candidates for a body lift should be close to their ideal weight. This can be accomplished with diet and exercise, or through a surgical procedure such as stomach stapling. People who have lost significant weight due to gastric bypass surgery or following a pregnancy are often the best candidates for this procedure. Dr. Kleto will help you determine if a body lift is the best decision for your particular frame.

Potential Body Lift Risks and Complications

A body lift is a major surgical procedure that may require assistance at home for a few days. Dr. Kleto applies his 25 years of experience to every procedure he performs to help reduce risks, but nothing can guarantee against complications including:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection
  • Loss of skin sensitivity
  • Substantial scarring

In addition to performing your surgery, Dr. Kleto will work closely with you before and after your procedure to help guard against potential complications. Making sure you carefully follow all of Dr. Kleto’s advice will help reduce your risk for serious complications as well.

Complications are rare, and often worth the minimal risk when compared against the enormous benefits of feeling good about your body. Dr. Kleto will be happy to address any of your concerns as well as give you a better idea of the benefits of this procedure during your initial consultation.
