Scars are scars: Body lift surgery, which is what you are asking about, will always leave you with scars, but if you go to a plastic surgeon with experience in body lifts, he will place the scars in the least conspicous places (e.g. Inner thighs, bikini line, inner arms, etc). The goals of body lift surgery are to reduce the excess skin and improve the form/function, so you can wear clothes and perform activities. ...Read more

Be Good To Yourself: 6-8 weeks 6-8 weeks But if I could guess what you'll do is try and push it sooner than that.And you might get away with it if you are very very careful and start real real easy, like legs only for a while.
