Lower body lift surgery

Lower body lift is intended for people with massive folds of skin and fat around their mid and lower body. Body lift patients experience a smaller or larger degree of skin laxity, induced by a rapid decrease in fatty tissue. Lower body lift surgery is most often chosen by those who have lost a significant amount of weight by means of dieting and exercising or obesity surgery, but it can also be extremely advantegous for people who developed loose hanging skin on their lower body as a result of ageing or pregnancy.

This condition is best dealt with by lower body lift surgery which is the excision of redundant skin in order to tighten the abdominal wall, the back, the buttocks and the thighs. Although lower body lift consists of a buttock lift, a tummy tuck and a thighplasty, it offers a more dramatic change in lower body contours than these three separate procedures. Stretch marks are effectively eliminated by including them in the area to be removed, and the buttocks are lifted, making the legs look longer.Buttock augmentation may also be performed to further shape the bottom. When sagging extends to the upper portion of the body, lower body lifting can be carried out in conjunction with upper body lift surgery, a combination referred to as total body lift surgery.

Patients who undergo this procedure have a moderate amount of fat, stored in thin layers below the skin surface and they are relatively close to their ideal body weight. Women who plan to have babies in the future, should postpone surgery, because pregnancy and childbearing would offset the results of the procedure. Here we explain the process of the operation but bear in mind that some of the elements, such as the location of incisions or the utilisation of certain techniques, may vary. All details will be discussed preoperatively and if you fill in our online consultation form, we will inform you about your options in advance.

BeautyHungary gives particular attention to the education of patients, and we are always happy to answer any query you have.


About the procedure

The surgeon makes an incision that encircles the body like a belt, and runs across the lower abdomen, the hips and above the buttocks. Excess skin is cut away from the bottom and the back of the thighs. The butt cheeks are lifted, thigh skin is firmed and an extended abdominoplasty is performed. To achieve the smoothest effect, skin is usually separated from underlying muscles in the area extending from the navel to the central rib cage. Redundant skin of the abdominal and pubic region is eliminated as well, muscles are tightened and the remaining skin is repositioned by pulling it towards the incision. The surgeon returns the belly button to its original or a more desirable location. The next step is making two other incisions down the front or inner thighs. They allow the surgeon to complete the firming of the thighs and the pubic area. The remaining tissue is suspended and the incisions are sutured back together.

Afterwards liposuction is performed to further enhance body contours and with the help of the suctioned fat, brazilian butt lift technique may be used to make the buttocks fuller and rounder. In this case, fat cells are purified and reinjected to the butt cheeks. The surgeon may decide to perform the procedure in one session or in stages, depending on the extent of the surgery. Bandages are placed to protect and provide compression to the surgical area.

Healing after lower body lift surgery

Any restrictions will be determined by the healing of your scars and it is essential to avoid stretching of the incisions. The sutures are removed two weeks after the surgery and patients are usually allowed to return work in about three weeks. You will have to wait several months for the scars to fade but once they heal, they are hardly noticeable as they are carefully placed in natural skin folds and can be well hidden by underwear or bathing suits.

If you feel that lower body lift is the solution for your skin problems, do not hesitate to contact us and we will arrange an appointment with one of our fully qualified and experienced plastic surgeons.
