This is a surgical procedure in which fatty tissue and excessive skin is removed from either upper or lower body areas. A lower body lift specifically removes the excessive hanging tissue from abdomen, flanks, buttocks, outer thighs, and lower back areas and to tighten muscles of the abdominal wall. This procedure is not suitable for patients with obesity and hence different surgical procedure should be planned for patients that are overweight or obese. There are several different methods of performing these procedures depending on technique and expertise of the plastic surgeon. Body lift surgery can be combining with other forms of body contouring procedures including VASER liposuction or other common elective surgical procedure. Medical evaluation including lab and radiological investigation should be performed where necessary in all patients considering the body contouring procedures.
