A single procedure to tighten up a specific area of your body after weight loss—for instance, a thigh lift-might be enough to give you the look you want, but remember that multiple procedures can be combined to preserve an overall impression of balance and proportion. Remember that a lower body lift isn’t one surgery, but is a custom-tailored mix of surgeries that impact areas from the abdomen down.
A lower body lift mainly addresses skin that's become loose due to some combination of aging, weight loss, and gravity. Associated problems can range from general flabby tissue that lacks aesthetic appeal to specific sagging areas that create discomfort or even medical problems. Overhanging skin can generate friction that leads to tender patches, rashes, and worse.
The "lift" in lower body lift involves Dr. Toy tightening this loose skin by making an incision, shaping the underlying tissue, and eliminating any excess.
The lower body lift procedure could include one of a variety of thigh lift options, which vary in terms of overall size and scope, as well as incision location. This lift can impact your outer thighs, front thighs, and buttocks. A lower body lift alone does not, however, correct loose skin and excess fat on the inner thighs.
A Brazilian butt lift fat grafting might be a part of a lower body lift with Dr. Toy. This involves tightening up sagging buttocks and rounding them out with fat harvested from elsewhere in your body.
A lower body lift can also include tightening loose skin on your hips and abdomen.
This procedure complements the belly-tightening benefits of a tummy tuck, bringing a sleekness and slim silhouette to your body from the midsection down. Be sure to discuss the look you want with Dr. Toy during your consultation; he’ll explain what each procedure does and how it can benefit your specific body type and shape in greater detail.
