Lower Body Lifts

After a successful weight loss people often find they are left with excess folds of skin that will not conform to their new body shape. Not only is loose hanging skin unsightly but it can cause functional problems.  Large amount of excess skin can cover the pubis and groin. Skin irritation can occur in this area due to sweating.  Patients feel that despite losing weight they cannot fully benefit from it as this excess skin restricts them and is also a cause of social embarrassment. A lower body lift can remove this excess skin, lift the buttocks and may add flattering contours to the patient's body.

The lower body lift consists of an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) that extends to also remove the skin around the hips and back. The procedure lifts up the pubic area, outer thighs and the buttocks, getting rid of excess skin in the abdomen and back. This can leave you with tighter skin and muscle, reducing hygiene issues and resulting in a more toned and healthy appearance.

The Lower Body Lift Procedure

The lower body lift procedure begins with the surgeon making an incision around the belt-line of the waist, across the lower abdomen, and across the top of buttocks. Excess fat and skin are then removed before the incisions are closed and covered with bandages and a compression garment for six weeks to reduce swelling and aid in the natural tightening of the skin. Liposuction is a very useful tool which may be used to remove excess fat and shape the body in these patient


Risks*

Due to incisions being all the way around the body, a body lift procedure carries a higher risk of complications than most surgeries. After the surgery, it is normal to expect some bruising but other risks can include infection, bleeding, haematoma, pain, wound breakdown, asymmetry, wrinkles and folds of skin, skin loss, unevenness and wide, lumpy, red or visible scars.

A compression garment must be worn for six weeks. Your wounds will be checked two weeks after your surgery and the surgeon who performed your surgery will see you after 6 weeks for a follow-up assessment and as often as required until you are fully recovered.
