About Lower Body Lift Surgery
Body lifts address skin laxity around a person’s torso that could result from loss of skin elasticity.
Significant weight loss, pregnancy and the natural aging process can result in loose skin below the waistline that wraps around the entire lower body. This sagging skin not only appears in the front of the abdomen, but it also occurs in the thighs and buttocks. When skin is stretched for a significant period, it can lose elasticity and the ability to shrink back to a smaller body. Similar changes could occur in the upper body, arms and breast. This excess skin is aesthetically displeasing and can cause mobility restrictions, discomfort and hygiene issues.
