Lower Body Lift

At Inspire Aesthetics, our talented board-certified plastic surgeons can surgically reshape your lower body. You may want drastic changes in the appearance of your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs by reducing the sagging skin on your lower body. Our plastic surgeons in Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach, FL, can improve the contour of your lower body with a tummy tuck, beltectomy, liposuction, butt lift, and thigh lift, either in one session or in a series of surgeries.

About Lower Body Lift Surgery

A lower body lift is a surgical procedure to address sagging skin and excess fat in the lower abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and hips. This comprehensive surgery is often sought by individuals who have undergone significant weight loss, resulting in loose, hanging skin. During the procedure, a plastic surgeon removes excess tissue and tightens the remaining skin and underlying muscles, creating a more toned and youthful appearance. Lower body lifts can greatly enhance body contours and boost self-confidence.

Counter The Effects of Age & Weight Loss

As you age or undergo significant weight loss, your lower body can experience dramatic changes. Your skin may lose elasticity, resulting in sagging and excess tissue around the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Even after you reach your goal weight, you may be left with unwanted excess skin that will not be remedied by more diet and exercise. The presence of excess skin can prevent you from truly appreciating the results of your weight loss.

Many patients need surgical intervention to achieve that last step in their body transformation. We also see patients with mature skin that has lost its elasticity due to the gradual loss of collagen. If you have sagging skin due to age, you may want to reshape your lower body to remove the lax skin. Inspire Aesthetics is led by skilled plastic surgeons who specialize in addressing these concerns to help you regain a more youthful and contoured lower body.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for a lower body lift are typically individuals who have experienced significant weight loss through bariatric surgery or lifestyle changes, resulting in excess skin and fat in the lower body. Ideal candidates should also be in good overall health, have stabilized their weight, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can evaluate your specific needs and determine if you are a suitable candidate.

Your Lower Body Lift Consultation

During a private consultation, our plastic surgeons can suggest the most appropriate surgical or nonsurgical body contouring procedures for you. Common procedures performed within a lower body lift include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), beltectomy, panniculectomy, thigh lift, butt lift, laser and ultrasonic fat removal, or liposuction. The surgical technique will be discussed with you, along with the risks and the type of scar it will make.

Our plastic surgeons will take the necessary precautions to hide scarring made by the incisions within the natural folds and creases of your skin. We can also mask or obliterate scars with nonsurgical scar removal procedures. Reduce the stretched-out, redundant skin on your lower body with updated and innovative methods according to your body type and aesthetic concerns. Please contact us to discuss the latest options for a pleasing body contour.

Lower Body Lift: What To Expect

All lower body lift procedures will be performed at a local hospital or an accredited surgical center under general anesthesia. Depending on the number of procedures performed, the length of your operation could be 3 to 4 hours or longer. You may have to spend several nights in the hospital so that your progress can be monitored, as this is an extensive procedure. Your postoperative nurse will manage your pain and help minimize your discomfort.

Your Lower Body Lift Recovery Process

Once you are home, we ask that you rest for at least 2 weeks post-op and continue to take all prescribed medications. Swelling and bruising are normal responses to this surgery, and it may take 6 months or more to fully recover. Delayed healing, bleeding, scarring, infection, and blood clotting in the legs are all risks that can be avoided with precaution and care. You must make gentle movements starting on day two to keep your blood circulating. Compression garments need to be worn as recommended by your plastic surgeon.

You must wear the abdominal compression garment for the first 12 weeks. Your surgeon will monitor your progress and inform you when you can return to normal activities. Though differences are visible within the first week, it takes 6 to 12 months for the final results to become evident. Your skin will continue to age, and you will still experience a skin laxity change over the course of your lifetime. It is truly important to adhere to a healthy lifestyle and exercise regimen after a lower body lift to enjoy the results of this surgery for many years.
