LOWER BODY LIFT
Dramatic weight loss, weight fluctuations and natural aging frequently result in flaccid skin in areas under the waist. This excess of skin , on top of not being aesthetically pleasing, can cause difficulty for walking or even exercising, bad posture, back aches and shoulder pain, rashes and chronic infections in the creases, problems of personal hygiene due to the accumulation of sweat in the affected areas and low self-esteem. The lower body lift tightens the buttocks, the posterior and interior side of the muscles, the hips and the stomach.
This surgery can be considered if you’ve had a dramatic weight loss because of a bariatric surgery or because of diet, and you have kept a stable weight during the last 12 months. This surgery basically consists of extending the incision of an abdominoplasty. The length and shape of the incision depends on the amount of skin to remove. The results of the surgery appear almost immediately. Maintaning the weight y doing exercise may help preserve the results. The surgery lasts approximately 3 to 5 hours and the recovery period is of 6 weeks.
