When pregnancy, weight loss, or genetics leave areas of your lower body looking heavy, saggy, and unattractive you can be feel self-conscious and embarrassed. Stretched skin, loose muscles, and excess fat can impact the appearance of the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs, making bathing suits and shorts uncomfortable and embarrassing to wear. If you’d like to have a firm, attractive figure, it may be time to consider a lower body lift.
The knowledgeable staff at The Rose Clinic in Provo, Utah can help you explore possible modifications to your lower body to restore a smoother, trimmer, more attractive shape.
A body lift requires a several incisions, and the length of the incision will depend on the extent of the body contouring work to be performed. The incisions will be placed strategically so they are hidden by most clothing or swimsuits. Once you are ready to begin, the body lift procedure consists of:
General anesthesia is administered by a licensed anesthesiologist for your comfort and safety during the procedure.
Your incisions are typically placed along your lower abdomen and your lower back. The placement of these incisions will allow for modification of the abdomen, waist, groin, thighs, and buttocks.
The underlying muscles in each area will be pulled tight and attached to create a flatter, sleeker profile. Excess skin will also be trimmed away. The buttocks and lateral hip and thigh are elevated. Occasionally liposuction is performed along with a lower body lift to enhance the results and extract excess fat.
Once the procedure is complete, the incisions will be closed and bandaged. You will have tight garments and drains will be put in place to help remove any excess fluid that accumulates over the healing process.
Once your procedure is complete, you will be observed overnight until you are in a condition to return home. The lower body lift procedure will require several hours to complete, based on the extent of your procedure. Before you are released your doctor will provide detailed aftercare instructions to manage your recovery and healing.
Risks & Aftercare
You will be prescribed medication for pain as well as antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection in the surgical sites. Once you are released to go home, you are expected to avoid all strenuous activity for the first two to four weeks. Your doctor will schedule follow up appointments to monitor your recovery, and will advise when you can resume light activity. It usually takes up to six weeks for patients to resume normal daily activities and once again engage in more strenuous activities such as exercise. All surgeries involve risk, and we ensure our patients are educated and understand what to expect during recovery and in final results.
