In medical, English-dominated literature “body lifting” is the streamlining of various parts of the body after massive weight loss when the removal of excess skin on the upper arms, flanks, chest, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, etc. should be carried out. It does not matter whether the various liftings take place simultaneously or in stages.

In contrast to this, in the German language, the term “body lifting” is used for the simultaneous abdominal and buttock lift so the intervention of the body – above the waist – is fully lifted and tightened. Due to the circular incision, of course, the lateral thigh skin is tightened.
