Body Lift Expert in Los Angeles - Dr. Kenneth Hughes
What Is a Body Lift?
A body lift is a surgical procedure that involves removal of excess skin by way of an incision that extends around the body (also called circumferential body lift). Body lift surgeries are frequently necessary after massive weight loss, aging, or as a correction for previous surgeries. There are two types of body lifts – a lower body lift and an upper body lift.
What Is a Lower Body Lift?
The lower body lift (also referred to as belt lipectomy) is a surgery that involves removal of loose skin by way of an incision that goes around the waist and helps tighten the abdomen, sides, lower back, outer thighs, and butt. The lower body lift will create a flat abdomen along with an improved waist and an improved lower back. At the same time, the buttock can be lifted and the outer thighs can be improved.
A patient may need a tummy tuck to take care of the skin and abdominal wall laxity in the front of the body. However, some patients may have loose skin on the back, buttocks, or lateral (outer) thighs as well. This is referred to as a posterior lower body lift. The tummy tuck and the posterior lower body lift performed at the same time is a lower body lift.
