Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift is a circumferential procedure, which shapes the abdomen and waist, as well as the outer thighs and buttocks. It is a very powerful body contouring operation that removes excess skin and fat through lifting the outer thigh and buttock combined with the tightening of the abdominal area. It is performed with an incision that wraps around the lower waistline. A lower body lift is frequently performed in the patients who have lost a significant amount of weight after pregnancy, diet and exercise, and/or bariatric surgery. In some situations a buttock augmentation can be performed at the same time. Your decision for cosmetic body contouring surgery is an individual one and your options will be discussed in your consultations with Dr. Farkas. Each area of the surgery may require different amounts of care depending on what is performed, but in general the after care for any body lift procedure is straightforward. Dr. Farkas advises at least one night observation so that patients are comfortable and confident in their recovery after this type of surgery.
