This is also a very popular procedure with women (and men!) who have lost large amounts of weight. With a surge in bariatric surgery in the last decade, many patients are turning to these types of procedures to complete their full-body transformation. In many cases this procedure, along with a tummy tuck, can become a “necessity”, due to the large amounts of excessive skin the patient presents. When performing a LOWER BODY LIFT, our surgical team makes a contoured incision along the lower back of the patient. This will allow them to take a “block” of skin and fat that will allow them to “lift” your lower body. This reduces the sagging appearance that is very undesirable.
The scar that the surgery leaves runs along the “bikini line” and is difficult to detect.
