Improve Overall Lower Body Contours

A lower body lift, also known as a circumferential body lift, is a comprehensive surgical procedure aimed at addressing sagging skin and tissue in the lower body. This surgery targets areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and hips, offering patients a more contoured and toned appearance. It is particularly beneficial for individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight, whether through bariatric surgery or other means and are left with excess skin that cannot be improved through diet and exercise alone.

During a lower body lift, excess skin and tissue are removed, and the remaining skin is carefully repositioned and tightened to create a smoother, more youthful contour. This procedure not only enhances the aesthetic appearance of the lower body but can also improve physical comfort and mobility by reducing skin irritation and allowing for better-fitting clothing. Lower body lift surgery is a highly individualized procedure tailored to each patient’s unique needs and desired outcomes, often resulting in a significant boost in confidence.

Benefits of Lower Body Lift:

  • Improved lower body contour and silhouette
  • Enhanced self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Increased comfort and mobility
  • Clothes fit better and more comfortably
  • Long-lasting results
  • Potential relief from skin irritation and chafing
  • Restoration of a more youthful appearance
  • Customizable to address specific areas of concern
  • Comprehensive approach to lower body rejuvenation
  • Reduction of sagging skin from the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or flanks

What Happens During the Lower Body Lift Consultation?

During the consultation, our surgeons, Dr. Lauren Patrick and Dr. Catherine Hannan, will conduct a thorough evaluation of your medical history and aesthetic goals. They will discuss your concerns regarding excess skin and tissue in the lower body and examine the areas to be treated. Our surgeons will take the time to answer any questions you may have about the procedure, recovery process, and expected outcomes. They will also explain the techniques involved in the lower body lift and provide recommendations tailored to your needs.

Additionally, our surgeons will discuss the potential risks and complications associated with the procedure, as well as any pre-operative preparations required. They will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your goals and ensures a safe and successful outcome. Throughout the consultation, our priority is to ensure you feel informed, comfortable, and confident in your decision to undergo a lower body lift surgery with us.

What Is Recovery from Lower Body Lift Like?

Recovery from a lower body lift involves a period of adjustment and healing, during which you may experience some discomfort, swelling, bruising, and temporary limitations in mobility. It’s essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions diligently to optimize your recovery and achieve the best possible results. Initially, you may need assistance with daily activities, so arranging for help from family or friends beforehand can be beneficial.

It’s crucial to avoid strenuous activities and follow your surgeon’s guidelines regarding post-operative care, including wearing compression garments as instructed to minimize swelling. While downtime varies for each individual, most patients can return to light activities within a few weeks and resume exercise and regular daily routines over several weeks to months. Your surgeon will schedule follow-ups to monitor your progress and provide additional guidance on skincare, scar management, and any concerns that may arise during your recovery.
