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.

Surgical Technique

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.
