What Is a Lower Body Lift?

For patients with loose and sagging skin on their buttocks, thighs, or hips, Dr. Perlman may suggest a lower body lift as part of their personalized treatment plan. This procedure can effectively tighten and tone the lower body by eliminating excess skin and fat. Following the lower body lift, patients can experience increased confidence and comfort with their body, and the incisions are discreetly hidden beneath clothing.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Lower Body Lift?

If you have loose skin on your buttocks, thighs, hips, and abdomen, thin layers of fat below the skin in these areas, and have lost a significant amount of weight, Dr. Perlman may recommend a lower body lift as part of your personalized treatment plan. It’s important to be aware of the extent and location of the scars that may result from the procedure. Dr. Perlman takes great care to place incisions in areas that are usually concealed by clothing, typically around the waist region. Additionally, being at a healthy, stable weight and being a non-smoker are important factors for consideration in undergoing a lower body lift.

What Is the Process for a Lower Body Lift?

During your lower body lift procedure, you will receive general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. The incision usually starts on your back, and during the procedure, you may be gently turned to allow Dr. Perlman to address the loose skin on your hips and thighs. After making the incision, excess skin is carefully removed, and the remaining skin is then stretched to create a more toned appearance. Finally, the incision is closed with sutures to facilitate proper healing.

What Does Recovery Entail After a Lower Body Lift?

The recovery process for a lower body lift is extensive given the nature of the procedure, and we are here to support you throughout the entire journey. Following the surgery, you will wear specialized compression garments to aid in controlling swelling, and Dr. Perlman may prescribe pain medication and antibiotics for your comfort and to prevent infection. Sutures are usually removed approximately two weeks after the surgery. You will be encouraged to start walking regularly the day after your lower body lift to promote circulation and aid in your healing. While you may resume your normal activities four to six weeks after the procedure, it’s essential to follow Dr. Perlman’s specific post-operative instructions to ensure a successful and smooth recovery.

How Much Does a Lower Body Lift Cost?

The cost of your lower body lift will be based on the specific requirements of the procedure as determined by Dr. Perlman to achieve the best possible results for you. After your consultation appointment with Dr. Perlman, you will receive a comprehensive breakdown of the costs associated with your lower body lift.
