Would you like to have a slim, firm, and lifted waistline, hips, thighs, and buttocks? You may be surprised to learn that there are many different ways to achieve this. One of the most popular methods is through the lower body lift. This procedure can help eliminate excess skin in the waistline and thigh areas as well as reduce fatty deposits. If you’re considering this type of surgery, here’s what it entails.
The Lower Body Lift Procedure
The procedure will take approximately four hours, during which time the surgeon will extract fat deposits and excess skin from your thighs, waist, hips, and buttocks. Once this is accomplished, the excess tissues are removed. In addition to removing excess skin, the procedure may be combined with a tummy tuck, in which the abdominal muscles are tightened. If necessary, fat transfer can also be used to create a balanced and proportionate look.
When it comes time for recovery after surgery, most people can go home on their own within 24 hours as long as there is someone accompanying them at all times. For the recovery time period, you will not be able to do any heavy lifting or strenuous activity. To note, a maintained healthy diet is vital when considering this type of surgery.
Options for Surgery
1. Liposuction: Liposuction in succession with a lower body lift may yield the best results for your body contour. However, it is best to get an examination from your doctor before proceeding.
2. Abdominoplasty: An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, reduces excess skin and fat from the abdominal area while also tightening the abdominal muscles for a flat and toned look.
Pros of Getting a Body Lift
A lower body lift can be used for both men and women to achieve different results depending on their goals. For women, in particular, it is common to receive a body lift surgery after pregnancy. In other cases, it can be used as a self-confidence booster and a way to develop an ideal figure. For many who have experienced weight loss over time, a body lift is a great idea for helping contour your body to better show your results. For men, a lower body lift is often less invasive than other types of surgery. There are various techniques to achieve the desired results depending on how much skin needs to be removed and what kind of remaining natural fat tissue your surgeon will have access to. For more information about different options, it would be best to discuss them with your doctor when deciding.
