The appearance of the lower body is a problem area for many people. The abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks all make up our lower body. As we age, this is often a region that starts to sag and look unsightly.

Not only that, but sagging and loose skin in these areas can also restrict your movement. That can lower your quality of life, especially if you are otherwise healthy and like to travel and move about frequently.

The trouble is, the lower body skin can sag even if you are at your optimum weight.

So, if dieting and exercise haven’t helped, and you’ve been suffering from a lack of confidence in your body, let Bruno Plastic Surgery help. Dr. Anthony Bruno can perform a lower body lift in NEPA to remove sagging skin and give your lower body an overall more youthful appearance.

What Is a Lower Body Lift?

A lower body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a type of plastic surgery in which a surgeon removes excess skin and tissue from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks and then tightens the skin over these areas. The result is a more taut and shapely form that generally makes the body appear younger.

Because lower body lifts are performed primarily for aesthetic reasons, cosmetic surgeons are usually careful to maintain the volume of the buttocks and surrounding areas. Otherwise, a lower body lift would simply leave these areas flat, which isn’t exactly the effect patients go for with this procedure.

What to Expect with a Lower Body Lift

Once Dr. Bruno determines that you are fit for a lower body lift, he will evaluate your lower body to get a better idea of your current condition. Noting scars from previous surgeries in this area will be important here. Once Dr. Bruno takes in all this information, he will be able to tell you where your scar will be and whether it can be hidden below underwear, for example.

Dr. Bruno will instruct you in what to do on the day of the surgery. His requests could include stopping smoking or not taking certain medications.

For your lower body lift, you’ll go to a hospital and be administered general anesthesia. Dr. Bruno will make incisions around your thigh and buttocks, remove excess skin and tissue, and stretch and tighten what remains. Your lower body lift will then be complete!

Depending on your circumstances, your procedure can be an outpatient surgery or one that requires a few days of hospitalization. For the first few weeks, you will likely have some pain and discomfort, but painkillers should handle the worst of it for you. Dr. Bruno might also have you wear a compression wrap for a while after the procedure.

You may be able to get up and walk around inside a week, but you will need to limit any sort of heavy activity or exercise for about eight weeks. The swelling in the lower body should go down during this time, too.

One point to remember is that you will likely have a permanent scar in the area of the surgery, but you should be able to hide it beneath your clothes.
