A lower body lift removes excess skin and fat through a continuous incision around the beltline. It is in essence a combination of an abdominoplasty and a buttock lift. During a lower body lift, the abdomen, outer thighs and buttocks are contoured simultaneously. It is a good choice for patients who desire a more significant change in their silhouette. This surgery is more extensive than either an abdominoplasty or buttock lift alone, and requires one or more days in the hospital.
