Lower Body Lift

Lower body lifts are a group of surgical procedures performed to enhance the contour about the thighs, hips, buttocks and lower back.  These procedures are typically necessary in situations where there is excess, lax tissue present as a result of significant weight loss as may occur following gastric bypass surgery.  Lower body lifts involve the removal of various amounts of skin and fat with advancement or “lifting” of the adjacent tissue in order to restore an optimal smooth, flat contour in the area of treatment.  Supplemental liposuction is frequently performed in order to improve the uniformity of fatty tissue thickness and enhance the transition to the adjacent areas.  These procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis in a, State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgical Facility (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’) .  Operative and post-operative recovery times vary based on the extent of the original contour deformity.  However, most patients can comfortably return to routine daily activities about two weeks following surgery.  Skin re-draping and contour restoration is facilitated by the use of a compression garment following surgery.

For many patients, restoration of appropriate lower body proportion through a lower body lift may be the solution to restoring harmony with upper body dimensions, thereby allowing clothes to fit properly.  In this way, enhanced body image and self-confidence is possible.

When considering a lower body lift, or indeed any cosmetic procedure, be sure to select a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 15 years of clinical practice experience and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (The Mark of Distinction in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery® ASAPS), Dr. Robert Kimmel welcomes the opportunity to help you achieve your goals for cosmetic enhancement and enjoy a happier, more confident lifestyle.

We are proud to serve patients from Scranton, Allentown, and Harrisburg.
