Lower Body Lift Surgery Overview
Lower body lift plastic surgery is also called a belt lipectomy. Most patients realize that majority of weight loss takes place in the thighs, buttocks, and hip area. Extreme weight loss can cause large folds of skin that result in discomfort and chafing.
Lower body lift can help in removing this excess skin and also lift the buttocks. It can flatter contours on the patient’s body. Lipectomy is a less invasive procedure as compared to full body lift. This procedure is generally recommended for patients that have experienced significant weight loss with sagging skin.
Procedure and Steps
Your surgeon will first make an incision across the lower abdomen on the belt-line of your waist. The incision will go all the way down to your inner thigh. Your specific needs and surgeon’s expertise will determine the particular pattern for your incisions.
The surgeon will place your incisions in such a way that the scars can be hidden by clothing and underwear. They will use the incisions to remove excess fat and tissues. The next step will be to pull your skin tight and trim any excess skin. The surgeon will suture the incision closed and cover it with bandages or compression garments.
Majority of patients choose to get a mid body lift or a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) along with the lower body lift surgery because it effectively tightens the lower body and doesn’t do anything for the abdomen. You should be able to resume regular activities within 2 – 3 weeks following the surgery.
It may take anywhere from 1 – 2 weeks to return to work after getting a lower body lift surgery performed. You may need to avoid strenuous activities for several weeks following the surgery. It’s crucial that you follow post-operative care instructions so that your skin and any underlying tissue can properly heal for giving you healthy and beautiful results.
Lower body lift surgery can repair drooping and sagging skin. It can also take care of weakened underlying muscles and stubborn fat deposits in and around the area below the waistline. Generally, patients are pleased with smoother and firmer skin.
They feel happy with their improved figure and alleviated discomfort. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for lower body lift surgery.
