Lower Body Lift
Typically a lower body lift surgery encompasses multiple procedures including circumferential abdominoplasty, outer or lateral thigh lift, and a buttocks lift. Although the lower body lift has the same incision as a circumferential abdominoplasty, the work done through the incision is more involved and complex with attention paid to the mons, buttock lift, and a formal outer thigh lift. The circumferential abdominoplasty creates incisions that are used to remove the excess abdominal, waist, lower back and upper thigh tissue. The tissue in the buttocks is lifted, which can result in a flattening of the buttock cheeks, and secured in a position previously noted on the lower back. Because the buttocks lift can create a flatter region, a buttock augmentation is usually performed at the same time (see below). The tissue of the outer thighs is then elevated over the thigh muscles as far as the outer knees and then lifted and secured in a higher position. This creates a smoother contour of the outer thigh and helps to renew the concavity of the waist. Once the excess abdominal tissue is removed, the lower body lift is complete.
