The lower body lift is a body contouring procedure that is designed to correct areas of sagging skin around the lower abdomen, back, buttocks, and thighs. Dr. Kramer recommends this surgery for patients who have lost a large amount of weight and are unable to tighten these areas of loose skin with just diet and exercise alone.
Primary reasons to have a lower body lift:
- You have lost a large amount of weight and are stuck with excess skin along your lower abdomen, hips, back, buttocks, and thighs
- You are not seeing the results you want with just diet and exercise alone
How a Lower Body Lift is Performed
Each lower body lift varies slightly and is customized to meet the needs of Dr. Kramer’s individual patients. This surgery is designed to remove excess skin and reshape and lift the underlying tissues through a circumferential incision made along the lower portion of the body. Dr. Kramer will use the natural contours of your body to keep your incisions as hidden as possible, helping to achieve a more natural outcome.
Refine the Contours of Your Body
If you are left with sagging skin even after losing the fat, it can make it extremely difficult to enjoy the achievements of your weight loss. A lower body lift can help to provide you with the sleek and well-shaped body you deserve.
The body lift is not to be used as a weight loss procedure or alternative to a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Kramer will carefully observe your condition during your consultation to determine if a lower body lift is the right procedure for you. Patients often combine this surgery with other body contouring procedures such as an arm lift, thigh lift, or tummy tuck. Dr. Kramer may also suggest liposuction if you are struggling with areas of stubborn fat around your lower body.
Healing After Lower Body Lift Surgery
Your lower body lift recovery will vary depending on the techniques used during your procedure. Most patients are able to return to work after about 2-4 weeks of healing time. Dr. Kramer will provide you with detailed information about your specific lower body lift recovery after your procedure. As your skin heals, you will notice gradual improvements in the look and feel of your skin. Your body’s contours will be tighter, well-shaped, and the outcome will look very natural.
