Dramatic weight loss, weight fluctuation or natural aging frequently results in sagging skin in areas below the waistline. Lower-body-lift surgery tightens and sculpts the buttocks, back of the thighs, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips and abdomen. Loose skin that looks aesthetically displeasing or causes mobility restrictions is removed. A lower body lift is appropriate if you are near your ideal weight and may precede or follow an upper body lift procedure. Loose skin will be removed and your contour sculpted, so you can see the results of your weight loss. You will experience the improved self-esteem that comes from looking better.
You should be at a stable, dependable weight before you undergo a lower body lift.
Basically, the lower body lift extends the tummy tuck incision completely around the lower torso. The length and the pattern of incisions depend on how much extra skin is removed and where that skin is located. The surgeon will do his or her best to take your incision preferences into consideration. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and takes around 4 hours.
You can expect to be bandaged and wearing compression garments, and you may have some surgical drains. The recovery takes at least two days on the clinic, where you will receive skilled nursing care. During this time you will learn how to take care of your drains and feel comfortable walking and moving. Discomfort will dissipate over a week or two after the surgery. Your doctor will prescribe pain medication. Full healing of the circumferential incisions may take four weeks or even longer. You will need to take at least two to three weeks off from work and restrict normal activities for four to six weeks. You will have some discomfort. This is expected and typically is easily controlled with pain medications. You will have to wait approximately six to eight weeks before you can resume exercise.
