Lower Body Lift
Making the lifestyle changes necessary to lose weight and get back in shape is both difficult and incredibly rewarding. But, while you will feel better and accomplished once you lose weight, you may still not be happy with the way your body looks.
Major weight loss can leave you with loose, sagging skin that seems to hang off of your body. There is no workout or diet that can help you get rid of this loose skin. The only way to properly address the issue is to have the excess skin surgically excised. At Associates in Plastic Surgery, our physicians can provide you with the surgical care you need in the form of a lower body lift.
What is a Lower Body Lift?
A lower body lift, or circumferential abdominoplasty, improves the appearance of the figure by restoring and enhancing the contours of the central body. The procedure permanently removes stubborn fat, excess skin, and also lifts areas that have been impacted by significant weight loss due to bariatric surgery or diet and exercise.
These changes give the body a tighter and more toned appearance and makes the surface of the skin smoother. The procedure also enhances muscle definition that has been lost under the layers of excess tissue.
A lower body lift is a combination of several body-contouring procedures. A lower body lift combines an abdominoplasty and a buttock lift using a circumferential bikini line incision to tighten and lift the abdomen, hips, outer thighs, lower back, and buttocks.
Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with this procedure for fat reduction and contouring. The primary goal of a lower body lift is to sculpt, tighten and reshape the lower body contour.
