Lower Body Lift: Procedure, Results & More

What Is Lower Body Lift?

A lower body lift is a surgical procedure that deals with skin irregularities in the lower body areas. These include the buttocks, lateral thighs, flanks, public area, and abdomen. It is general considered a form of cosmetic surgery that can bring a more youthful tone and appearance. However, those who undergo this treatment may experience a significant weight loss. The procedure typically involves the removal of excess skin and tightening of wall muscles in selected areas. Liposuction can also be implemented to create some balance between the thighs and torso.

Who Are Suitable for a Lower Body Lift?

A lower body lift is not for everyone. It is often done on those people with large amounts of hanging, loose skin in different parts of the legs and trunk. The objective is to restore the normal appearance of the skin after a loss of elasticity because of age-related changes or extreme weight loss. The best candidates for this procedure should be non-smokers with a stable weight and good health. In addition, it is very important for these individuals to have realistic goals and positive perspectives about the results. Women who want to become pregnant should avoid a lower body lift because pregnancy would considerably affect the outcome in their abdomen.  [2]
