What is a Lower Body Lift Surgery?
A lower body lift is a surgical body contouring procedure that removes hanging skin and fat from your lower body to reshape and lift specific parts of the body affected by weight loss or pregnancy. Lower body lift surgery targets the mid and lower body, including the abdomen, buttocks, lower back, flanks, and upper thighs. Depending on the amount of skin removal in your specific treatment plan, an incision all the way around your waist may be made, which allows for the highest amount of skin excision and lift to redefine the lower half of your body. With the help of plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang, a lower body lift surgery at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Duluth, GA should allow you to not just achieve your weight goals but to complete your transformation with a firmer body that looks healthy and beautiful.

Can I Have a Lower Body Lift?
You are likely a good candidate for lower body lift surgery if you have lost a large amount of weight and are now dealing with a new set of challenges. These new challenges include loose, wrinkled skin on the buttocks and upper thighs, skin that hangs on the stomach, and saggy skin throughout the midsection. If you are a candidate for this procedure, it's important to understand realistic expectations, which can be talked about with Dr. Mang during your consultative appointment. Something else Dr. Mang will be sure to discuss with you is the fact that scars are a part of this surgery due to the large incisions; however, many still feel the transformation is worth it. It's also vital to understand that the procedure does have a longer recovery compared to other cosmetic surgeries so it is helpful to prepare in regard to work and family care. Lastly, in order to be a candidate for this surgery, you'll need to be at a healthy weight.
How is a Lower Body Lift Performed?
The lower body lift is performed with general anesthesia and most likely one night's stay in the hospital. Due to the complexity of this surgery, it can be lengthy, lasting anywhere from 4 – 7 hours. The incision is commonly made where your belt is worn, which is why it is also known as a circumferential 360 or in some cases, a beltectomy. After the incision has been carefully made, Dr. Mang performs surgical liposuction to eliminate areas of excess fat, and from there, excess skin will be trimmed. Then, your remaining skin will be draped tight and secured with surgical sutures. You will need to wear compression garments over your lower body to help create a trimmer result, as well as to control bruising, bleeding, and swelling.
What Can I Expect After My Lower Body Lift?
Lower body lifts are considered a major operation so you should expect it to take around two weeks to get back to easy activities, and in certain cases, up to six months before you can get back to more strenuous movements, including aerobic exercise. Dr. Mang or a member from the team will discuss post-recovery instructions and information on wound care so that scarring is minimized for best results. While your recovery period can seem lengthy, you can expect extraordinary results, including a tighter, smoother body without the hanging, loose skin that once held you back from enjoying a full life.
Lower Body Lift FAQ
How much does a lower body lift cost?
Costs for lower body lift surgery will vary for each patient. In your consultation, Dr. Mang will be able to discuss a treatment plan that can fit your needs and budget. Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery accepts many payment methods and low-interest medical financing to make your surgical lift as affordable as possible.
Will I have visible scarring?
Several factors can contribute to the visibility of scarring you have after a lower body lift. Dr. Mang plans incisions so they're either easily concealed in less visible areas, like in natural skin folds, or where they will be covered by undergarments. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will give you aftercare instructions, which will help your stitches heal correctly — so the scars are flat and, in time, blend into your skin.
What can I expect during recovery?
Following a lower body lift procedure, you might have some inflammation and bruising in and around the treatment areas. Appointments for follow-up exams are necessary so Dr. Mang can track your healing. It's important to contact our office if you experience any symptoms of an infection or have any concerns.
When should I consider getting a lower body lift?
When you are thinking about getting a lower body lift, schedule an appointment with Dr. Mang to learn more about the process and when it may be right for you to get one. You should be at or near a healthy, stable weight because gaining or losing a significant amount of weight after a lower body lift can impact your results. Prior to surgery, Dr. Mang will also perform a physical assessment to make sure that you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure.
Will I have to stay overnight in the hospital?
Usually, Dr. Mang requires his patients spend at least one night in a hospital or medical facility after a lower body lift. This inpatient stay is for your comfort and safety, so your health can be monitored, and your pain can be controlled. Based on the number of areas that are being addressed and your overall health after surgery, Dr. Mang may suggest you spend multiple nights. In your initial consultation, Dr. Mang will discuss where you can stay, as well as how long he estimates you will be there.
