Sculpt Your Way to a New You

Lower body lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to sculpt and contour the lower body. This procedure is for those who have lost significant weight or have excess skin and stubborn fat in their lower body due to aging or pregnancy. During the surgery, Dr. Z will remove excess skin and fat from the buttocks, thighs, hips, and lower abdomen to create a smoother, more toned, youthful appearance.

Lower Body Lift Corrects:

  • Sagging skin and excess fat in the thighs, hips, buttocks, and lower abdomen
  • Poor skin elasticity due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy
  • A protruding lower abdomen
  • Irregularities in body shape or contour
  • Self-consciousness about the appearance of the lower body
  • Difficulty finding clothing that fits properly
  • Discomfort or irritation caused by excess skin rubbing against clothing
  • Unwanted stretch marks on the lower body

Your Lower Body Lift Session

Before the surgery, you will meet with Dr. Z and his team to review the surgical plan and answer any questions you may have. On the day of the procedure, you will be given anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. The type of anesthesia used will depend on your individual needs and preferences, and Dr. Z will discuss this with you beforehand. The duration of the surgery will vary depending on the extent of the procedure but generally takes four to six hours.

Dr. Z will make incisions in the lower abdomen and lower back, removing excess skin and fat from the buttocks, hips, and thighs. The incisions are made discreetly, hidden within the natural creases of your body, to minimize visible scarring. After removing the excess tissue, Dr. Z will tighten and smooth the remaining skin and underlying tissues to create a more toned and youthful appearance. The incisions will be carefully closed and dressed to ensure proper healing. You will be monitored closely by our experienced team in a recovery room before being released.

Candidates for Lower Body Lift:

  • Those who have lost a significant amount of weight and have excess skin in the lower body
  • Individuals with poor skin elasticity due to aging, pregnancy, or genetic factors
  • Those who have undergone bariatric surgery and have excess skin in the lower body
  • Individuals with a stable weight who are committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Non-smokers or those willing to quit smoking before and after the procedure
  • Individuals with realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure
  • Those who are in good general health
  • Those who have no medical conditions that may impair healing

Your Journey to Recovery: Side Effects & Downtime

After the surgery, you may experience side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the treated areas. These are normal and can be managed with medication and rest. You must wear compression garments for several weeks to reduce swelling and promote healing.

Most patients resume light activities within a week or two, but more strenuous activities should be avoided for at least six to eight weeks. Dr. Z and his team will provide detailed post-operative instructions and support to ensure a smooth recovery.
