Lower Body Lift

Lower Body Lift

Also known as belt lipectomy. Dramatic weight loss, weight fluctuation or natural aging frequently results in sagging skin in areas below the waistline. Lower-body-lift surgery tightens and sculpts the buttocks, back of the thighs, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips and abdomen. Loose skin that looks aesthetically displeasing or causes mobility restrictions is removed. A lower body lift is appropriate if you are near your ideal weight and may precede or follow an upper body lift procedure. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful lower-body-lift surgery and are pleased with the results.

When to consider a lower body lift:

  • If you have had dramatic weight loss due to bariatric surgery or dieting.
  • If you have relatively thin layers of fat below the skin in the hip, thigh, abdomen and buttock areas.
  • If overhanging skin in your lower body restricts your mobility and/or causes painful chafing, rashes or infection.
  • If you are distressed by sagging skin in your lower body
