LOWER BODY LIFT SURGERY

Also known as Belt Lipectomy or Circumferential Abdominoplasty, a Lower Body Lift is the work horse procedure for plastic surgeons specializing in After Weight Loss (AWL) patients. A Lower Body Lift is a combination of circumferential abdominoplasty, lower back lift, outer thigh lift, lifting the pubic area and buttock lift and is some cases auto augmentation.

There are five main reasons that we make the incision all the way around the body:

  • The Body Lift incision going all the way around allows Dr. Carmina to perform a more thorough lift and eliminates some of the potential imperfections that can occur in AWL patients with a routine Abdominoplasty.
  • With this procedure you can get a strong lift to the lateral thighs.
  • The buttocks can be lifted and or auto-augmented, using your own tissue.
  • The shape of the hips can be maintained or increased as needed.
  • Most important is that the abdominal muscles are tightened and if a hernia is present, this can be taken care of at the same time.
  • Further sculpting using liposuction is also performed.

In combination by tightening the underlying muscles of the abdominal wall, lifting and removing the excess skin and tissue from all around the body area, results in a firmer flatter abdominal area, a flattering waistline, smoother thighs and an overall tighter, well balanced and healthier lower body.

Lower Body Lift is a very dramatic and exciting procedure achieving a more youthful contoured body with curves you have only dreamt about, feeling beautiful in the clothes you wear, immediately improving self-esteem and creating a greater self-confidence in the new you!.
