Lower Body Lift Surgery
Excess skin can be removed from the buttocks with a lower body lift procedure. The procedure can also lift the buttocks and add flattering contours to the body of the patient. This is a less invasive procedure as compared to a full body lift. The procedure can help patients that have experienced significant weight loss.
The cost of getting a lower body lift cosmetic surgery will vary from one patient to the next depending on the unique circumstances and aesthetic preferences of the patient. This is a highly customizable procedure which can be performed either independently or in combination with an upper body or mid-body lift.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides lower body lift surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
These are a few factors that influence the actual cost of a lower body lift surgery:
Extent of the Lower Body Lift
Patients without significant amounts of drooping skin and fat tissue can benefit from less complicated lower body lift procedures. Your surgeon will focus on removing skin from a small area, such as the buttocks or the thighs. More comprehensive lower body lift surgery is usually required for removing unwanted skin and fat from multiple body areas.
Multi-Stage or Single Surgery
Patients that are in general decent health can undergo multiple surgeries at the same time. You may require multiple appointments if you are not in good health. This may cost you more in terms of pre- and post-operative care and anesthesia costs.
Fat Volume to be Removed
Some patients may require removal of excess loose skin following significant weight loss. In certain cases, sagging skin may also need to be removed in addition to surplus fat. Such patients require liposuction before lower body lift surgery. Cost of liposuction will be added to the overall cost of surgery.
General Patient Health Condition
Lower body lift surgery can be complex if the patient suffers chronic illnesses that affect the immune system. Recovery from surgery, preparation, and procedural costs may require additional techniques, care, and precautions. This will add to the estimated price tag of the procedure.
Anesthesia or IV Sedation
General anesthesia or local anesthesia along with IV sedation is useful in case of a lower body lift procedure. An anesthesia technique will be recommended by the surgeon depending on your unique circumstances. The overall procedural dollar cost will get affected because of the type of anesthesia and the fee charged by the anesthesiologist.
Pre- and Post-Operative Care Expenses
Diagnostic testing and health exams may need to be performed before you get a lower body lift procedure. You may need to pay for cost of medications, antibiotics, post-op visits, and compression garments. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend medical tests that may need to be performed after the surgery.
This will add to the overall estimated cost of surgery. Be prepared to explore your insurance and financing options before the procedure. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for lower body lift surgery.
