There are many reasons to have a body lifting operation: aesthetic expectations, enormous stress from pain, feelings of shame, or simply the desire for tighter and more elastic skin on the upper arms, thighs and buttocks.

The reasons for decreasing skin elasticity and excess skin are just as diverse: Aging processes, pregnancy, severe weight loss or illness. Strong and visible skin surpluses or even the formation of regular skin flaps often impair an otherwise positive attitude to life among those affected, especially when neither sport and exercise nor a healthy diet can do anything to combat sagging skin.

Tightening operations performed on certain parts of the body or in combination with the whole body (known as a body lift) give the skin more elasticity again. A positive feeling will radiate inwards and outwards as the natural shape of your beautiful figure and appearance reinvigorates you.

Parts of the body that can be contoured and tightened during a lifting operation:

As experts for plastic and aesthetic surgery in the Medienhafen in Düsseldorf, we perform skin tightening operations both on specific body regions and in combination with other areas. No matter which option you choose, the result of each body tightening procedure is a firmer, more elastic skin with an overall younger, active and more vibrant appearance.

Upper arm lift

At our plastic surgery practice in Düsseldorf's Medienhafen, we usually perform upper arm lifts on an outpatient basis and in combination with liposuction of excess tissue. The duration of an upper arm lift is between one and two hours.

The excess skin and the fatty tissue that lies underneath are removed. After a successful surgery, the wound is sutured cosmetically and unnoticeable. The scar, which later becomes a line scar, is located on the inside of the upper arm.

Even if a scar remains after the operation, it is not visible, especially when the arm is bent.

Thigh lift

A thigh lift typically only requires a vertical cut on the inside of the thigh. This incision runs similar to the trouser seam on the inside of the thigh.

We usually combine liposuction with the tightening of the thigh skin. This is used to improve the contour and allows excess skin to be removed without damaging sensitive lymphatic vessels.

We perform this procedure under general anaesthesia during a short in-patient stay of one to two days. The operation takes about two hours.

Buttock lift

For the buttock lift (rear lower body lift), you must plan a short inpatient stay of one to two days in our partner clinic. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and takes about one to two hours.

The incision is hidden along the buttock line. The resulting scars are hardly visible later and disappear behind bikini bottoms or swimming trunks.

Our patients can also benefit from additional liposuction here, which we use to additionally shape the body’s profile.

Skin tightening without surgery

If you want a firmer body shape and gentle fat reduction without cuts and scars with minimal downtime, the BodyTite™ system is a great treatment for you.


1. Which body part lifting is suitable for me?

Choosing whether an upper arm, thigh, bottom or even a full body lift is suitable for you depends entirely on which part of your body has the most excess skin or skin flaps.

Your individual level of discomfort is also important. Which excess skin can you live with? Which of these body parts could be positively influenced by doing more sports and eating a healthy diet? What excess skin affects your life so strongly that you want to replace it quickly and permanently with tight, elastic skin? Are there scar-free alternatives for you, such as the possibility of tightening skin and tissue using radiofrequency surgery (BodyTite™)?

We will be happy to advise you in detail. Simply arrange a non-binding consultation at our practice!

2. What information will I receive in the initial consultation?

During our consultation and information sessions at our plastic surgery practice in Düsseldorf's Medienhafen, we will discuss in considerable detail your wishes, objectives, and any questions or concerns you may have. We will talk about the risks and possible complications carefully and provide possible alternatives with all their advantages and disadvantages. Once we have developed the ideal strategy for you, we can go through the exact procedure of the operation step by step.

During this process, we will clarify, among other things, whether a short inpatient stay of one or two days is necessary for you. Finally, we will put together a personal portfolio with your treatment plan, which will contain a variety of different information and educational materials as well as the estimated cost.

3. What are the next steps after the procedure?

After a tightening operation, we recommend a short in-patient stay of one to two days in our partner clinic. You will have a feeling of tension in the operated area. However, this is completely normal and you should not worry.

A compression garment should be worn for about six weeks after the successful surgery. We also strongly advise you to take it easy after your stay at the clinic. This way, you allow your tissue to heal undisturbed. For about six months after the body lift, you should never expose the healing scars to sunlight without protection. It is better for the scars to remain discreet and bright.

As the wounds are closed with a self-dissolving suture material, no removal of sutures is necessary. The scars are initially reddened, but fade over time and become unnoticeable.

4. How long will the result last?

Depending on your lifestyle (maintaining a healthy diet, abstaining from smoking and direct sunlight), you can benefit from the results of a skin tightening procedure for life. However, the excellent results from a body lift can diminish due to an unhealthy diet, strong weight gain, pregnancies, or an accelerated aging process from strong sunlight and smoking.
