For many people with loose, sagging skin and misshapen body contours, exercise and a healthy diet are not enough to achieve their desired look. Weight fluctuations, aging and other factors may contribute to poor skin elasticity and can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks and thigh areas. Patients in Annandale who are concerned with their excess skin and body fat and would like a dramatic change may be candidates for a lower body lift.
A lower body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a surgical procedure which removes excess skin or fatty tissue. More extensive than just a tummy tuck, the lower body lift is performed on the lower torso and upper legs and re-sculpts the abdomen, hips, back, buttocks and outer thighs. A lower body lift is a comprehensive treatment that includes several procedures performed during one operation to create a more slender and toned body.
The Benefits of a Lower Body Lift Include:
- Eliminating unwanted fat
- Removing excess skin
- Tightening body contours
Lower Body Lift can help you achieve:
- A Slimmer Waistline
- Attractive Curves
- Better Comfort
A lower body lift concentrates on slimming and tightening the lower areas of the body, including the midsection, thighs and buttocks. Incisions are made discreetly, excess skin and fat are trimmed away, core muscles are tightened, and the remaining skin is redraped over the newly defined contours. Patients will notice a slimmer waistline, better-sculpted torso and overall more appealing silhouette.
Individuals who are in good health but are unhappy with areas of loose, sagging skin or excess fat may be ideal candidates for a lower body lift. All patients should be at a healthy weight, not smoke and have realistic expectations.
