Lower Body/Thigh Lift in Washington State

Anyone who has experienced significant weight loss, pregnancy or the natural aging process knows how easy it is for skin to lose its elasticity and sag. A lower back lift surgery can help patients achieve tighter skin on the buttocks and thighs, creating a more attractive and youthful appearance.

The procedure is typically performed as an out-patient surgery. While there may be some pain for the first two or three days following surgery, most patients can go out in public within a week and return to normal physical activity in about six weeks after surgery. You can expect a permanent scar, but it tends to fade with time and reaches its final appearance a year or 18 months after surgery. The scar will be largely unnoticeable, as it can be hidden by clothing and swimsuits. Results of a full lower body lift can be observed almost immediately and improve over the following weeks to months as swelling subsides.

What Is a Lower Body Lift? 

Body lifts address skin laxity around a person’s torso that may result from the loss of skin elasticity. Getting a lower body lift is an effective way to combat the following issues and restore tighter skin and a sculpted appearance:

  • Loose, sagging skin in the area extending from the waist to the upper thighs
  • Sagging skin not only in the front of the abdomen, but also in the thighs and buttocks
  • Skin rashes
  • Frustration and even embarrassment
  • Aesthetic concerns
  • Mobility, discomfort and hygiene issues
  • Lost skin elasticity
  • Body unable to shrink back even if you lose weight
  • Lack of results from diet and exercise alone

Despite the procedure’s effectiveness, not everyone is a good candidate for a lower buttock lift. To determine whether it will work for you, it’s important to discuss your specific situation as well as the risks and potential complications with us. Dr. Srikanth will carefully evaluate your overall health, including any issues that could interfere with the surgery’s success, such as blood pressure problems, bleeding tendencies and any history of adverse scar formations in previous surgeries.


A lower body, gluteal and thigh lift tightens and sculpts the abdomen, thighs, hips and buttocks. Here’s how it works:

  1. Removal of excess fat and skin: The extraneous areas left after weight loss or pregnancy are removed from the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks — essentially combining an abdominoplasty in the front (anterior), a gluteal or buttock lift in the back (posterior) and an outer (lateral) thigh lift.
  2. Tightening through an incision: The skin is pulled tight with an incision that wraps around the entire lower body to create a smooth, contoured appearance. The cosmetic surgeon typically performs this excess skin removal surgery in one step but in individuals with more pronounced deformities, the procedure can be staged.
  3. Other loose areas addressed: Loose skin on the inside of thighs is typically addressed with a medial thigh lift after all the above procedures are completed. Loose skin in the upper body, arms and breast can be addressed with an arm lift, breast lift or can be combined into an upper body lift.
