Lower Body Lift
A body lift is a body contouring procedure designed to remove excess skin from the lower body. People who have noticed loose, hanging skin on their hips, flanks, outer thighs, lower back, or buttocks can benefit from the tightening effect lower body lift provides. The procedure creates a better body appearance, especially for those who have achieved significant weight loss or undergone gastric bypass surgery. In those cases, though excess fat has been burned off, skin that has stretched to a larger shape has trouble shrinking to fit your slimmer profile. As a result, this stretched skin hangs and sags, remaining as an unwelcomed reminder of your former self until it is removed through surgery. With lower body lift, Dr. Gardner is able to restore the skin and tighten your profile.
The procedure is extensive and requires an overnight stay in the hospital. It has a recovery period of about 2 to 4 weeks before most patients are ready to resume their normal activities. Lower body lift can be combined with an abdominoplasty in Ft. Myers or other body contouring procedures for a comprehensive makeover. Also, excess tissues that are usually discarded during bower bodylift procedures can be used to augment buttock shape and volume.Â This can help improve the apprearance tremendously, especially in those patients with very flat and deflated buttocks.
