What is a Lower Body Lift Surgery?
A lower body lift is a body contouring procedure that eliminates excess skin and fat from the midsection or lower part of the body. This procedure lifts and reshapes common areas of the body that can change because of age, weight loss, and pregnancy. Lower body lift surgery focuses on the abdomen, buttocks, flanks, low back, and thighs. Depending on the amount of skin, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang may create a circumferential 360 incision, which allows us to excise and lift a large amount of tissue. A lower body lift can completely reshape the lower half of a patient's body. When it comes to performing lower body lift surgery, Dr. Mang has extensive experience with skin removal and fat reduction surgeries. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, this surgery helps patients achieve their weight loss goals and completes their total body transformation.
Is A Lower Body Lift For You?
Ideal candidates for lower body lift surgery are patients who have lost a significant amount of weight. After a large amount of weight loss, you may experience certain challenges, including saggy, excess skin on the buttocks, upper thighs, hips, or stomach. If you are considering a lower body lift, Dr. Mang will help set realistic expectations. Because of the complexity of this surgery, you will experience some scarring near the treatment area. Additionally, this surgery requires a longer recovery period compared to other cosmetic procedures. When preparing and planning ahead for your surgery, this is critical to consider. Finally, you must be near a healthy goal weight before undergoing a lower body lift. During your consultation, we will discuss all of these factors and create a personalized treatment plan.
"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

We will start your procedure by administering general anesthesia. The surgery time is lengthy and can last around 4 – 7 hours. Usually, the incision is placed where a belt would be worn, which is why a lower body lift is known as a circumferential 360 lift or beltectomy. After the incision is carefully made, Dr. Mang will perform liposuction to eliminate excess fat and excise any loose skin. Then, the remaining skin is tightened and secured with surgical sutures. Before sending you to the recovery room, we will place compression garments over the incisions to help control bleeding, swelling, and bruising. Generally, most patients require an overnight stay in our medical facility.
What to Expect
Lower body lifts are considered major surgery. Often, it takes many patients around two or more weeks to resume basic activities. For some patients, it can take up to six months before getting back to more strenuous movements, like exercise. Dr. Mang will provide detailed aftercare instructions so you can properly manage your incisions. While the recovery can seem long, the results are extraordinary. A lower body lift can help patients attain a tighter body and live a more comfortable life.
