Lower Body Lift
A Lower Body Lift is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin from the outer thighs and buttocks. It is a procedure that is commonly performed in patients who have lost a massive amount of weight (for example, post-bariatric patients) and have excessive amounts of loose and sagging skin. This procedure can dramatically tighten the loose skin on the outer thighs and buttocks to achieve smooth and firm body contouring. Utilizing specialized techniques, Dr. Bindewald takes great care in preservation and restoration of volume in the buttocks while tightening and improving body contouring elsewhere. This procedure is commonly performed with a tummy tuck to allow for the entire waist and abdomen to be sculpted. This procedure also requires an incision around the lower torso, though Dr. Bindewald does take great care to place this incision in a manner so that the scar can hopefully covered with underwear and clothing.
It is important to know that although the lower body lift can have a significant impact on the outer portion of the thighs, it will not change the appearance of the inner thighs. The inner thighs are best treated with a thigh lift. In most cases, your surgeon will recommend performing the lower body lift and the inner thigh lift at separate times to maximize safety and to achieve the best cosmetic results.
Am I A Candidate for a Lower Body Lift?
If you have lost massive amounts of weight and have excessive loose and sagging skin around the outer thighs and hips, then you may be a candidate for a lower body lift. It is important know that a lower body lift is major surgery and you may not be a candidate if you are a smoker, have a history of poor wound healing, have increased risk of bleeding, or are malnourished.
During your consultation with Dr. Bindewald, he will perform an assessment of volume and location of excessive skin and degree of excess fat, if present. He will also perform a general assessment of your health and medical conditions. Together, you will develop a personalized plan to help you achieve your cosmetic goals while reducing risk and cost if possible.
