What Are The Risks Of Lower Body Lift Surgery?

Lower Body Lift Surgery

What Are The Risks Of Lower Body Lift Surgery?Lower body lift procedure is used for removing surplus skin and fatty tissue from the hips, thighs, and lower or middle abdomen. During the initial consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will discuss the potential risks. They will obtain your consent before going ahead with the procedure.

As long as you follow your surgeon’s instructions and make full health disclosures, you will have minimal risk of complications. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides lower body lift surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Should You Get a Body Lift?

It’s vital for the person to be in good physical health before going under the knife for getting a lower body lift procedure. They should also be near their ideal body weight. Lower body lift procedure is suitable for patients that have a good understanding of the procedure and set reasonable expectations. The procedure is for people that are dedicated to a healthy lifestyle.

These are a few risks and complications following a lower body lift cosmetic surgery:

Visible Scarring

Risk of scarring is not just linked to lower body lift procedure. It is also present in other kinds of cosmetic surgery. The resulting scars may be more noticeable if the sutures used don’t disappear quickly. You can always have another treatment, such as dermal fillers for reducing scars if there is abnormal scarring.


Infections following a lower body lift plastic surgery procedure are relatively rare. However, it is important that you inform your plastic surgeon immediately in case an infection occurs. You should also avoid drinking alcohol or smoking. This is because smoking can result in infection during the recovery period.

Fluid Accumulation

Accumulation of fluids is called seroma formation. Patients may experience fluid accumulation after drains are taken out of the wound. Patients should inform their plastic surgeon immediately if fluids accumulate in the wound. This is to avoid any further damage. Your plastic surgeon may insert new drainage for draining all fluids and leaving the wound dry.

Skin Necrosis

It is possible for the skin at the targeted area to die following a lower body surgery. Necrosis is usually caused when flow of blood to the skin is interrupted. This can cause healing problems, necrosis, and dehiscence.

Necrotic skin may fall off resulting in infections. This is a rare complication, and you should inform the plastic surgeon immediately if this occurs. They will take steps for preventing accumulation of harmful microorganisms at the wound site. They will also prevent additional damages from occurring.

Skin Sensation Changes

Most cosmetic surgery procedures cause changes in skin sensation at the surgery site. However, it is possible to experience pain in the surgery site because of an increased sensitivity of skin. The change in skin sensation may become better after a few weeks following the procedure.

However, this is different for different patients. Few patients also experience pinprick sensation and itchiness under the skin. This is common in many patients because of nerve regeneration following the procedure.
